Strangimals was born from the desire to help animals and their owners with the will to share knowledge and improve animal welfare. 
The aim of training is always a happy animal and a happy owner.


I am constantly updating my knowledge and skills and I am committed to the ethical rules of  Animal Trainers of Finland and PDTE (Pet Dog Trainers of Europe).


I started my professional career with animals as a dog trainer in 2003, before which I was involved in TV commercials for which I trained dogs, hens and cows.

As a dog trainer I have planned and run a variety of different courses such as everyday obedience, puppy classes, tracking, enrichment, heelwork to music, walking nicely on a lead, animal first aid.
I have carried out private consultations in problem behaviour solving since 2005. The majority of private consultations have been for dogs, but there have been a few cat customers too. 

I have been teaching on courses for professional dog instructors, behaviour consultants and veterinary nurses.
I have had several different duties during my career with animals, running a doggy day care, keeping a dog equipment store and interpreting Finnish-English-Finnish in dog related lectures, seminars and workshops.

In addition to the animal behaviour skills, I have worked as a veterinary nurse since 2011.
