I offer a professional and friendly service for walking, playing, training and home care for dogs.
My first language is English, but I am also comfortable speaking German.
My experience: I have owned, cared for and trained many dogs, cats and horses throughout my life. In 2014/15 I spent time observing and assisting at puppy classes with British trainer, Sue Whiteley (Full member of APDT UK and qualified Vet Nurse) where I gained lots of experience in training and socializing puppies. It was then I decided to follow my dream of becoming a professional trainer and behaviourist.
In July 2016 I completed my certificate in Dog Psychology and Behaviour though #####.### (Centre of Applied Pet Ethology).
I have also completed two courses, Learn to Talk Dog and Dog-to-Dog Communication, with well-known British trainer Sarah Whitehead.
I am currently studying a 2 year course as Dipl. Hundetrainer,
Dipl. Verhaltensberater für Hunde (im Schulungszentrum für Tierverhaltenstherapie und Erziehungsberatung TVT e.U.)
My philosophy: I believe that a strong, positive relationship with dogs is built through gentle handling, understanding, mutual respect and trust for each other. I only use positive, reward-based methods when working with animals.
