Who am I?

I am an ambitious young woman from Denmark who has spent her entire life surrounded by dogs. I was born into a family with dogs and much of my upbringing was focused on me learning how to read a dog’s body-language and respecting their space and needs. My mother has been training dogs since before I was born and is a well-recognised dog training instructor and behaviourist in Denmark. When I was younger, my father was a search- and rescue-dog handler and trained with one of the family’s dogs.

Before getting my own dog at only 10 years old, I took all responsibility for the feeding, walking, training and cleaning up after the family’s oldest dog for 3 years. We went to competitions together and we had amazing teamwork!
When I got my own dog, Aske, we immediately started training in our dog training club at least once a week. We were in both general obedience and agility classes.
I soon realised that our true passion was training tricks on the sideline, while waiting for our turn in the different classes. Soon we were able to do all kinds of tricks together – to great admiration of our dog training club.

When I was only 13 I was offered by our dog training club to become a certified dog training instructor. They paid for my education and certification which I finished a year later. I took a speciality in agility, which I soon taught my own classes of in our dog training club. I later started classes in tricks training as well.

I am currently studying for my bachelor degree of science in Animal Behaviour at University of Aberdeen.
