Caring for you and your pets’ wellbeing during these challenging times
At the moment many of us are more or less housebound. In times of change wellbeing of both, humans and animals can suffer. As an animal trainer I know that changes can cause problems for animals on the one hand but can also provide chances for change to the better on the other hand.
I offer a new series of webinars to provide support for you and your pets directly at your home. The webinars focus on issues and challenges arising during this special time and will cover a variety of topics. Listening to the webinars will help responsible pet caretakers to use the extra time with their pets sensibly and efficiently.
The webinars will be offered via Zoom. Each webinar contains a presentation covering the most important features of the topic (about 1 hr) and will be followed by a Q&A section (about 30 min). Every participant is welcomed to ask questions live and we will discuss them right after the webinar.
“A walk isn’t just a walk” – How to make walking your dog more enriching
During this webinar I will focus on how to make this one walk a day more interesting, interactive and therefore challenging for dogs. Lots of easy to follow ideas and exercises that can be done on any walk – no matter where you go – will challenge your dog’s fitness and stimulate her mentally. As an additional bonus these interactive walks will strengthen your relationship and your dog will become more attentive to on walks.

“A tired dog is a good dog” - Enrichment for dogs at home
At the moment we are only allowed to go out for exercise once a day. As a result, your dog might feel bored for the rest of the day and might express behaviour you consider problematic. In this webinar I will give you ideas on how to enrich your dog’s life at home. Lots of creative input will help you to keep your dog stimulated and active - with or without a garden.

As we spend more time at home as usual, we can use this to increase our pets’ welfare by enriching their environment in creative and welfare-orientated ways. In this webinar I will focus on different kinds of pets, except dogs (cats, rodents, birds, fish, and reptiles) and provide you with easy to follow ideas on how to keep your pets busy, happy and healthy.

“Home alone” - How to avoid separation anxiety in our pets
We spend a lot of time in our homes during this crisis, which might be very different to our normal daily routines.

There are however, measures you can take to make this change back easier for your pet and during this webinar I will give you some advice on how to keep your pets resilient to changes.

“A leash is for communication, not for pulling” - Loose leash walking for dogs
