Hi! Nice to meet you! After having worked for several international companies, I decided to switch careers to do what I love doing most: working with people and dogs! I work as a dog behaviorist and I am a certified SA Pro! Next to that, I’m a canine myofascial release therapist, as I believe body and mind are very much connected. I work science based and want to help out both dogs and people to enjoy life to the fullest, as I believe we should enjoy the time with our dogs as much as we can. I live in a small village in Zeeland, together with my husband, our dog Oscar (my biggest inspiration) and our 2 rabbits: Flip & Mila. In my free time, you will find me in nature :). If you have any questions, feel welcome to contact me!
Hi there! My name is Shannon Peters-van Kooten and I live nearby Rotterdam in the Netherlands. I teach puppy class at the local dog school every week with lots of love and fun since 2019. I train fear and force free and I find dog welfare very important. At the dog school we get a lot of questions of pup parents who have problems with their dog being left alone. That inspired me to dive deeper into this subject an therefore I graduated as an SA pro in 2022. I really look forward to help owners with their dog with separation anxiety so that the dogs feels comfortable again being home alone and the owner will get the freedom in their life back. If you have any questions about separation anxiety, puppies or about me, feel free to contact me.
Hi, I’m Louise – the founder of Canine Friends. A little about me and my experience in dealing with separation anxiety. I have been a dog trainer for many years now and I found it incredibly hard when I realised my own puppy was struggling despite doing everything right and what I’d been told to do simply wasn’t working. So I went on a journey to learn more about it and how best to help her in the most ethical way possible, as there’s very few quality and researched methods out there. I then came across Julie Naismith and the SA Pro method. Having had great success with my own dog, I decided to study to become an SA Pro. Since then, it’s been a passion of mine in helping other owners find that freedom from the SA prison that it can feel like and I’d love to work with you to help you achieve some freedom!
Hi ! I am the happy owner of Valdo, and a dog walker. My dog is also going through separation anxiety. I trusted the process of the SA training, and I am able to get more and more freedom everyday ! I totally understand how you actually feel, and I know this is hard. This is why I wanted to be able to help people and their dogs to go through separation anxiety. Feel free to reach me !
Hi there! Nice to meet you! Ever since I was little I grew up with dogs. At my parents’ house we have always had dogs, sometimes 4 or 5 dogs at a time. In 2012 during my studies I graduated in animal nutrition. From 2014 to 2021 I worked in animal nutrition. In 2021 I got my French bulldog Bubbles. And 3 weeks later I adopted my other French bulldog Cardi. I was overjoyed. After not having a dog for 6 months as my last one passed away in 2021 everything felt empty so I was over the moon to have dogs again. However, I soon found out that both Bubbles and Cardi have separation anxiety. There went the spontaneity, I could no longer do things without having arranged a dog sitter. Or I took them everywhere. And then I knew, I want to help people who experience the same problem. As an experience expert, I know all too well how annoying this problem is. And that’s why I want to help you! I am here for you, just send me a message!
