Sue Minsuk

Lynne den Boer

Nijkerk, The Netherlands

Hoi, leuk je te leren kennen! Mijn naam is Lynne den Boer en samen met mijn man, dochter, hond Balou (Labrador x Mechelse Herder) en nog een heel scala aan dieren woon ik in het buitengebied van Nijkerk waar wij onze eigen woning en snuffelweide voor honden aan het realiseren zijn.

Ik werk als hondengedragstherapeut, trainster & sinds 2024 ook als verlatingsangst-expert met honden en hun eigenaren onder de bedrijfsnaam Pootsitief. Dit werk ben ik gaan doen door de problemen waar ik met mijn eigen hond tegen aanliep en al het verdriet, de onmacht en teleurstellingen die dit met zich meebracht. Na 5 jaar hard zwoegen met de juiste hulp, zijn wij nu samen echt een team geworden. Ik weet waar zijn grenzen liggen, hij de mijne & hoe ik hem kan helpen om zich zo prettig mogelijk te voelen (& hierdoor indirect mijzelf ook).

Wij hebben een lang pad bewandeld met een hoop hobbels, waar ik mijn kracht uit weet te halen & veel honden en eigenaren nu supergoed mee kan helpen omdat ik weet hoe het voelt. Ik kan jullie écht kan helpen de wereld met vertrouwen tegemoet te gaan zowel met als eventjes zonder elkaar. Jullie kunnen dit!

Erika Liljefelt

San Jose, California, USA

Erika is a certified trainer and behavior consultant (CTBC), committed to positive reinforcement/force-free training. Before becoming a dog trainer, she started her own dog walking company where she specialized in walking reactive dogs in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has volunteered at shelters and assisted with various classes for puppies and adult dogs. She has a special spot in her heart for adolescent dogs and dogs that struggle with fear and anxiety. The greatest moments in dog training for her are when a fearful dog begins to trust her and when humans gain a greater understanding of their dogs.

Erika's journey started in 2002 when she adopted her first dogs on her own, two Black Lab mix littermates (yes, at the same time!), but her life went on a different path until many years later when she and her partner adopted a street dog from Taiwan who ended up having profound behavioral struggles. He was “that one dog” who put her back on the path to working with dogs and their humans.

Because of her experience as the guardian of a profoundly fearful dog, she intimately understands the huge toll stress and fear can take on everyone. Erika focuses on behavioral wellness for dogs as well as supporting their humans through a variety of struggles, and she does this with empathy, patience, understanding, care, and fun. She loves her human clients as much as her canine clients. Her favorite thing to do is educate people about dog behavior and communication.

In addition to becoming a certified SA Pro Trainer, Erika earned the CTBC designation at the rigorous Dog Training Internship Academy originally started by Janis Bradley. She has also taken classes through the Karen Pryor Academy, Trish King's Academy of Dog Behavior, Susan G. Friedman, Ph.D.'s Living & Learning with Animals 3-day course, and is currently enrolled in Michael Shikashio's Aggression in Dogs Master Course.

A passionate reader with a degree in English literature from UC Berkeley, she's traded novels for avid reading in the dog behavior field, continuing education to keep up with the latest canine science, as well as attending virtual and live conferences and seminars, and attending virtual webinars, workshops, and classes with top experts in the dog training and behavior field.

Erika lives with her partner and daughter in the San Francisco Bay Area. She is a dog mom to Mochi, 11-yr-old Min-Pin/Rat Terrier; Beck, 5-yr-old Border Collie; and Fiona, 4-yr-old Blue Heeler mix.

“I look forward to hearing from you whether you live in the San Francisco Bay Area or across the globe!”

Shana Michiels

Diest, Vlaams-Brabant, Belgium

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.
