My journey as a dog trainer & canine behaviourist started in 2005 with starting my own dog walking, pet, and horse care company, ‘Pawlig’s Pet Care’. Over the past 7 years, I have seen so many dogs struggle in day-to-day life with behavioural issues such as reactivity, fear, and anxiety. It really inspired me to help them and their pet parents using kind, positive, and effective training methods and I now specialise in offering 121 bespoke training programmes for puppies and dogs. We have two dogs, three cats, and a horse. One of our own dogs suffers from separation anxiety, so I can relate to the emotional drain and restrictions this means for dog and pet parents alike. As an SA Pro Trainer, I am now able to help more dogs who struggle to cope when left alone and pet parents to get their lives and freedom back. Although I am based in the UK, I am a native German. I offer consultations in English and German and am able to work with clients anywhere in the world as all our sessions take place via video link in the comfort of your own home.
