Ulrike has volunteered for several dog foundations across Europe like ‘Gut Aiderbichl’. Her mission is to promote a better understanding and special approach for adopted stray dogs. This is ultimately to help them settle into their new homes and to adapt to a life as a loved and domesticated pet.
Ulrike believes that a dog’s mental health and their stable behaviour depends on a balanced physical health condition at the same time. Her partnerships with Veterinary Specialists or Chiro Practitioners and Osteopathic Therapists have proven this holistic approach in her Dog Psychology work and rehabilitation of dogs.
Ulrike has been the ‘Super Nanny’ to many puppies many different breeds. She believes that puppy training means to professionally support the owner with all challenges from introducing the dog to the new home, socialisation through the rocky puberty until a stable adult dog with a strong human band.
