Theory & Practice - my experience so far
Both practical experience and theoretical knowledge are needed to insure a good quality of service. I prefer to work evidence based which means that I will never stop learning as science is ever evolving.
Degree and certificates:
In 2017 I obtained a postgraduate degree in Companion Animal Behavior and Welfare, which, offered 2 years of free access to the published research database Science Direct, lectures from many international professionals (behaviorists and vet behaviorists) and practical experience in handling and training of companion animals (dogs and cats). This was offered by a cooperation of The University College of Odisee in Belgium, the Autonomus University of Barcelona in Spain en Davalon in the Netherlands.

I give many lectures in the Netherlands and Belgium on dog welfare and behavior. I am a guest teacher at Annorlunda (dog behavior academy in Holland) where I teach the subject dog welfare.
