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 honestly the best catsitter ever! She took care of our cat as it was her own, gave us daily a nice update with pictures, and besides her talent for cat’s & dogs she
Is very talented in taking pictures with them. The pictures are amazing.
She completed our days from home with giving us the trust that beloved cat is in the best hands.
Mafalda is a wonderful and caring pet sitter with an amazing talent and empathy to look after any character due to their needs.
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.
