Modern training at eye level

The lecturer has been interested in all spas to do with dogs since she was a child - thanks to which she was able to acquire sound knowledge in this area over time. The variety of topics not only extends to general breed knowledge, keeping and training a dog, but also to topics such as e.g. B. Birth, rearing, imprinting, learning theories, behavioral studies, special dog training to anatomy, genetic dispositions, clinical pictures and health teaching of a dog. Through regular further training in this sector, the latest findings from development and research are always incorporated into their training.

 

In addition to the private training experience in the field of dog sports, the lecturer gained valuable experience in adult training during her 12 years of active military service, used as a trained teaching sergeant in theoretical and practical medical training with various management tasks and positions. After completing her service as a regular soldier, she returned to public service after completing her studies in administrative law and, among other things, supervises the trainees in her area as a practical instructor. In this area, too, the lecturer regularly takes part in further training courses, primarily in order to develop personally, but also to be able to consider other perspectives and perspectives and to be able to apply the knowledge acquired in practice.

With the necessary knowledge of human nature, a dose of humor and a certain empathy, it understands them  Lecturer the participants in the seminars there  to pick up where they need support on their educational paths to them  to successfully achieve their goals.

Play, fun & motivation is the key to success

As a motivator for the training, the focus for the lecturer is primarily on having fun at work for both dog and owner. She maintains a trusting relationship with her dogs, whose bond is understood as the basis for joint training. In training she works stress-free with lots of praise and a reward system adapted to the dog.

 

With every training session, her dogs not only learn the pure behavior that she wants to teach them, but they always associate a certain feeling with the signals and the situation. The positive emotions that develop and are transmitted when working together, as well as the right dose of motivation, are crucial for a long-lasting human-dog relationship and the key to success. Her first rescue dog "Frisbee vom rote Merlin" should be mentioned here by name, as she was very successful in various championships for seven years in a row and her motivation and enjoyment of her work was always available into old age.

Over time, the lecturer has worked with many different dog characters and learned to adapt to each type of dog individually. She quickly recognizes the potential of the dog and clearly points out the strengths and weaknesses in order to work on them.
