About Mafalda

I am trully fond of animals and I believe I have deep and somewhat natural understanding of how to interact with them.

The reason I moved to Belgium is that I wanted to bring Ozzy (my dog) to a country where I could find a society more open and inclusive to dogs, than in Portugal where, for example, it's hard to find a dog park to unleash our friends safely.

I am on the search for extending my knowledge and experience in dog training, aiming to work with assistance dogs.

There is a long road to go, but I think the best way to get acquainted with the subject is to effectivelly be surrounded with as many different characters and behaviours possible.

In that sense I welcome any pet, and hopefully we can both learn from each other :)

Mafalda is zeer professioneel in de omgang met dieren. Wij hadden het geluk dat ze last-minute op onze veeleisende kat kon oppassen. Terwijl wij weg waren kregen we dagelijks een uitgebreide fotoshoot met prachtige foto's van onze kat, ook heeft ze hem gekamd. Thuisgekomen gezien dat ze zelf had gestofzuigd (met al dat kattenhaar)! Je ziet ook dat ze dat doet met passie, dus wat wil je nog meer? Wij gaan haar zeker in het vervolg meer inschakelen om op onze harige kat te passen. Heel blij dat we haar gevonden hebben!

Skills

Specific Skills

I speak English & French & Dutch & Spanish & Portuguese
+10 years of experience
Familiar with dog training techniques

I have completed the course in basic obedience training following a positive reinforcement method, using clicker, at Centro Canino Vale de Lobos, Sintra, Portugal. After that I had the chance to professionally succeed in shaping a dog's behaviour to become relaxed, namely when getting out of the house and walking by the handlers side. His owner's "didn't recognize" him after a few sessions.

I volunteered in animal shelters both in my hometown Cartaxo, Portugal and in Ghent, Belgium.
