Hi! I'm Veronica.

I’m an animal behaviorist and dog trainer. My goal is to build good relationships to achieve good results using positive and force free methods.

I discovered this field thanks to my own dogs who challenged me with their own fears, anxieties and even reactivity. Eli, our daschund, and Patch, our Dalmatian-Bodeguero mix have been my master all those years. In 2011, I studied Animal Behavior and Dog training at the University of Barcelona in Spain and I haven't stopped my learning journey since then.

Every new dog and animal that I meet triggers me to learn more so I can deeply understand them. I constantly keep learning by attending seminars and conferences around the world, reading multiple books about behavior, neuroscience and any topics that can help me get a little closer to them.

My philosophy
I believe in working with respect and understanding for the dog, using positive and reward based methods. When I work with clients one of my focuses is : How can we improve this relationship? What are the motivations of our furry companions? How can we do it better and simpler? Communication is key. I train with heart, love and through games. Training should be fun for you and your dog.
Always learning

I'm always looking to learn more about dog behavior and training techniques. I had the chance to travel in Europe and the United States where I met a lot of great scientists and animal behaviorist experts in their own fields.
