Hi! My name is Marieke and I live in the Netherlands with my Australian Labradoodles. I’m specialized is puppies, from birth to adulthood. Some descriptive words for the way I work with dogs: welfare-oriented, focused on mutual understanding and trust, and an emphasis on learning to understand the dog and its way of communicating. The separation anxiety of my own dogs motivated me to become a Certified SA Pro Behavior Consultant. As an expert by experience, I know better than anyone how it feels, and I would love to give you the tools to find a way to more peace and freedom in your life together.

My aim is to always give the very best support and guidance every step of the way as I work with people to help their dog’s overcome separation anxiety. I have have a first class honors degree in psychology and have followed my passion for dogs by furthering my study and experience to specialize in dog training and behaviour.

Hi! I am Caroline, a dog behaviourist from Belgium. Since I struggled myself with solving the SA of my puppy, I know how hard it is to live with a dog struggling to be left alone. I decided to become a SA pro trainer to be able to help other people overcome seperation anxiety of their dogs. Besides separation anxiety, I also help with other behavioural issues such as anxiety related problems, aggression, reactivity and problems between dogs and small children.
