Fear and force free R+ dog training. Animal welfare is paramount to me and is the basis of all my courses. That’s why my focus is on building and maintaining a relationship of trust between you and your dog. By looking at body language and recognizing stress signals, you learn what your dog is trying to tell you and when he needs some extra support, for example. Not only does this help the dog to feel safe in its new environment faster, but its confidence in you will grow and you will lay the foundation for good cooperation. My training method is reward-oriented and dog-friendly, according to the latest scientific insights. Research has shown that positively trained dogs are happier and learn faster. This is also good for the dog’s self-confidence and will make it dare to take (more) initiative.
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 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!
My mission is to ensure the owners experience the joy of cooperation and stress-free life with their dogs purely through positive reinforcement, without punishment or using any aversive methods. Therefore, as conscious owners they have a well-behaved, confident and reliable companion who they understand and can confidently leave home alone, or go anywhere with them without worrying about their behaviour. Every dog and owner and their relationship is different – facing several problems they don’t know how to handle. Providing useful advices and results to any kind of behavioral issues requires experience and knowledge. Continuous learning and development as a professional dog trainer is essential, thus I have completed several in person and online courses, and now I am proud to belong to Separation Anxiety Pro Certified Trainers as well. I passionately help owners who struggle with daily frustration and stress due to the behaviour of their dogs and don’t know what to do, how to train and raise their dogs the best possible way, fulfilling their needs. I provide step-by-step training, personalized advices tailored to their lives, in order to develop clear communication between dog and owner, so that they can enjoy the time spent together and live a harmonious life. I help overcoming separation anxiety in the form of one-on-one online sessions, so that I can give all my attention and we can move towards the desired results as efficiently as possible.
