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.

I have over 10 years of experience working with dogs with many different behavioural issues. One of my own dogs began to display severe separation anxiety prior to moving home. This led to my desire to specialise in separation anxiety issues, and wanting to understand from a scientific point of view how I could not only help my own dog but other dogs out there! Being a SA PRO Trainer (which I am so proud to be a part of this organisation) will now give me tools to help those SA dogs. Through my work to date I have learnt to understand how anxiety impacts both dogs and owners emotionally and physically. Dr John Bradshaw (a leading expert in separation anxiety) wrote an article in the Guardian that included the quote “most dogs hate being left on their own. Dogs can be trained to cope with being left but few owners are aware that they can (indeed should) do this”. Using peer-reviewed scientific evidence, safe training using desensitization to keep dogs under their panic threshold, our aim and desire is to help as many dogs as possible to stay safe regardless of the source of the behaviour (separation anxiety, isolation, or frustration). Following our step-by-step programme, we go at the pace your dog dictates by ensuring we remain under its panic threshold. We use easy to follow steps and by setting uncomplicated, achievable goals. Although I am based in the UK, I can work with clients over a worldwide basis as all our sessions take place via video link in the comfort of your own home. During the programme, we provide ongoing patient and empathetic support to ensure you and your dog remain motivated.

Hi! I’m a French behavior consultant and I specialize in SA and rescue dogs. My goal is to support and help guardians who struggle with their dog’s SA. Many dogs end up or are stuck in shelters because of SA, and I’d like to make a change. I also love doing prevention with puppies and newly adopted dogs for them to be comfortable from the start with alone time. I know how hard it can be to live with an SA dog. That’s why coaching humans is a crucial part of my job. It is very important for me to support guardians in the SA journey – the ups, the downs, the doubts and the final freedom! Working as a team and helping guardians reach their goals is what I’m really passionate about. Supporting dogs’ AND humans’ mental health and well-being is the reason why I love working with SA cases. I only use positive reinforcement and science-based methods. I live in France and help French-speaking and English-speaking people all around the world! Do not hesitate to contact me for more info.

Hey! I’m a dog trainer and a cat coach so I’m here for help with your dog, your cat or both if they aren’t getting along. 😉 I specialized in reactivity, stress (chronic stress), anxiety and of course separation anxiety in dogs. I love to help dogs (and cats) to a relaxed and happy life. There is so much conflicting information out there about dogs and the way we “should” be training or treating them. I would like to make a change by informing about science-based, fear- and force-free training methods. Because yes, there is another way which is loving and gentle to dogs and also yes, they work for all dogs, regardless of breed or age. 😉 My own dog Nala is the living proof of what remarkable changes are possible when you apply modern dog training. She is a lovely Kooikerhondje, born in 2015 and she had taught me so much. I love what I do and I’m very grateful to be able to do this and help dogs and their parents to a more relaxed and happy life together.
