The first lecture notes I only read online, when my main studies allowed me to do so. But when I went to the first seminars for practical experience, I was completely stoked.
I decided to pause my main studies in Psychology and finally ended it, so I could give all my attention to becoming a dog trainer. At this point I didn‘t only want to use all this knowledge for private use, I wanted to share it with other dog owners and help to enrich their everyday life.
In May 2020, I successfully finished my final examination at the ATN and in September 2020, the approval after §11 of the Protection of Animals Act by the veterinary office in Ludwigsburg followed. This approval allows me to work as a dog trainer until today.
My dream of owning my first dog got fulfilled in 2019, when our Australian Shepherd-girl Asami moved in with us. My partner and I currently go through her exciting youth and love working on new tricks with her.
Permission according to § 11 Abs.1 Ziffer 8f TierSchG for dog trainers was granted to me by the veterinary office of the city of Ludwigsburg.
