Born in Sweden, Maria came to Australia in 2005 and got hooked on the Australian lifestyle (also met her Kiwi husband). After a few years of traveling around Australia, where she worked with everything from grape picking to house painting, tractor driving, farm work and kennel work, she ended up becoming a Veterinary Nurse with a special interest in behaviour. Starting in Darwin and finishing in Brisbane, via Cairns, she worked at vet clinics.
Discovering a big lack of understanding for dogs natural behaviour from dog owners and veterinary staff alike, she decided to start educating people to get better relationship and understanding for their dogs.
She had the amazing opportunity to attend a course with Cesar Millan at his Dog Psychology Center in 2013. Learning so many techniques and realising the importance of her own state of mind when handling dogs, she now wants to help sharing this knowledge to the world.
In March 2018 she and her husband Mark, who also works in the business, went to a workshop with Heather Beck in Salt Lake City, Utah. Here they learned the very successful 5-step program which marries in perfectly with dog psychology and gives the dog owners a clear step by step way to create the dog they've always wanted. They also learned heaps about socialising dogs in the safest way possible.
