Birgitta is a certified dog trainer. Her passion is helping people with their rescue dogs and now since she is graduated as a SA Pro Trainer, she wants to help also dogs to get over their home-alone issues. She comes from the Netherlands, lived also in Germany and lives now with her husband and 4 rescue dogs in Sweden. She speaks Dutch, English, German, a little Swedish and helps people with their dogs worldwide. Dogs have always played an important role in her life. She volunteered for many years also for shelters and NGOs. She is inspired by the unconditional love of dogs towards people. That is why dogs deserve that we understand them well and that dogs, therefore, have a beautiful dog-worthy life. She introduced The Snuffle Garden Project in Holland. This dog welfare project became very popular. She organized for that reason also webinars about this topic and created an English website. In addition to her experience and passion for dogs, she has great empathy for dogs but also for their owners. She tries to tell people about their dog in a positive way, how they can better help and guide their dog. She always explains this in “normal people language” so everybody can understand.

As a Professional Canine Trainer (PCT-A) and canine business owner Angel has taken numerous courses throughout his career. Julie’s SA Pro training was absolutely amazing. Angel is thrilled to have yet another amazing certification on record, and the proper tools to help those dogs suffering from such and the ability to understand SA so much more. Angel believes general behaviour training is not enough. Niche-specific training is what dogs and owners desperately need. Angel has fallen in love with helping dogs conquer their SA and owners become a better support system through such.

I’ve always had a passion for improving animal welfare by helping humans learning to train more effectively! I have conducted empirical research focused on the human/animal bond and its impact on both owners and pets during graduate school and my philosophy is that through better training and improved human/dog relationships, the number of animals relinquished to shelters will be significantly reduced! Since starting my professional career in dog training my interest has been in separation-related problem behaviors commonly known as separation anxiety. I offer fear-free separation anxiety training that focuses on pet communication, socialization, and science-based behavioral theory. In addition to be a SA Pro certified trainer, I am a certified professional dog trainer, a fear-free certified trainer, and an Elite Fear Free Certified Professional. I have many years of experience (in various capacities within the animal world, from a veterinary nurse to boarding manager, to certified dog trainer) in supporting pet owners making the needed changes in their pet’s habits. My passion and focus for the past three years have been learning all I can about canine separation anxiety-related behaviors. I have attended seminars in the subject matter and I have trained under the mentoring of one of the world’s leading experts in Separation Anxiety. I maintain my education up to date so I can provide the quality all dogs and owners deserve. My goal is to help as many owners and dogs as I can overcome the debilitating fear that makes home departures impossible and turns otherwise great dogs into fearful, unhappy dogs.
