I aim to meet the needs of clients wherever they may be and whatever their circumstances may dictate. You can opt for face-to-face training sessions or distance-learning Zoom calls. Either way, you will be given a one-to-one training session that will meet you and your dog’s needs. I only offer one-to-one training so that I can focus on the individual needs of you and your dog. You will see results faster and learn the tools you need to live a happier and more relaxed life together.

Hello! I am a dog behaviourist who works in an animal-friendly way. I have a bachelor’s degree in Animal care and I currently work as a puppy coach at a guide dog school. It’s my job to teach the foster homes how to raise a dog. In addition, I help owners with the behavior problem of their dogs. I have several years of experience as a dog caretaker in an animal shelter. Of course, any dog can get separation anxiety, but it is unfortunately very common in dogs that have been adopted. Many owners and their dogs struggle with this problem and there are still far too few trainers with a good knowledge of separation anxiety. This is one of the reasons why I chose to specialize in this subject. I want to help you and your dog! I believe in this method of dealing with separation anxiety because it is animal-friendly and ensures that your dog experiences as little stress as possible. If you would like my help, feel free to contact me anytime! Greetings Birgit

I am the owner of VIP Dog Training and I absolutely love what I do. I am passionate about being able to support people and their pups overcome separation anxiety. I have experienced it first hand and know how debilitating it can be. Hopefully with my advice, support and empathetic training we can work together to achieve contented separation.
