Hi there! I had a dog with separation anxiety myself and know how hard it can be. Because of her, I wanted to know more about this so I could help other people to help their dog overcome their separation anxiety. It’s important to me that you feel safe with me to share all your doubts and questions. I want you to understand what’s going on so you can help your dog the best way and be on the same team. Aside from SA cases, I help all kinds of people, dogs and cats with a wide variety of struggles. I work a lot with dogs that were adopted from abroad and expecting families. Working force-free and fear-free training is a no-brainer for me. I want you and your pet to understand each other and have the happiest life together. Tackling separation anxiety can be overwhelming and you have to do it yourself, but with me by your side, you don’t have to do it alone. Feel free to contact me for a non-binding introductory meeting.

Hi there! I am a Dutch dog trainer who is specialized in rescue dogs and now of course also in separation anxiety. I am a real out-of-the-box thinker and I try to be as open-minded as possible in this work. It is my mission to improve dog welfare in the Netherlands by continuing to learn and inform. From now on I will further specialize in separation anxiety to help as many dogs and owners as possible. I don´t have a dog myself at the moment. In November 2020 I lost my lovely girl Faye (a Greece rescue dog) and I am not ready for another dog yet. Until that moment we are a foster home for rescue dogs who deserve a second chance. I am very grateful to be able to do this wonderful work. For me helping an owner and their dog to a whole new life together is amazing!

Hello! I’ve been training dogs for almost ten years. For a couple of years, I focus on training young puppies, coaching first-time dog owners and scent work. I love teaching dog guardians what an amazing thing a dog’s nose is and how they can have fun together and improve their relationship. Where separation anxiety used to be something I preferred to stay away from (like a lot of trainers) I encountered more and more puppies with separation anxiety. While helping these families I noticed my knowledge was too basic but also that I really enjoy working on separation anxiety. So here I am! For me as a person, animal rights are very important and this reflects in my work as a trainer and therapist. I work using positive reinforcement and put the dog’s mental health and wellbeing first. I want dogs to feel happy, comfortable and secure while training and in daily life. I live in Belgium but I help people and dogs all over the world.

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.

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.
