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, 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!
