Who, Why & How
Beatrix was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. Upon graduating from college with a Bachelor’s degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management, she decided to pursue a career in the Food and Beverage industry which resulted in her move abroad. In 2012, Bea relocated to the United States and continued working in Hospitality. While she enjoyed meeting new people, she also greatly missed the connection with dogs. Upon realizing her heart’s desire, Bea decided to take on a much different role, so she began her journey in the world of pet sitting and dog daycare. This experience ultimately inspired her to become a professional dog trainer.
The reason Bea chose this path is the love and admiration she has for human-canine connections as well as the need for public education. Her goal is to help owners communicate successfully with their dogs, which leads to an improved life for both. Bea is a supporter of adoption, and also an advocate of preparing and informing future puppy owners about proper and continuous dog socialization, correct house-training, basic manners, and sufficient canine enrichment for mental health.
The quickest and most natural way to train dogs is through positive reinforcement. This is the best recipe to teach dogs a new behavior that will not cause any emotional or physical stress of any kind. If frequently practiced, dogs retain new behaviors without the need for incentive. Bea’s qualifications come from many sources; as a pet sitter, she provided individual in-home care for dogs and cats. As a dog daycare attendant, she has gained great knowledge about various breed interactions and dynamics of a pack. Bea is currently offering group classes at a local foster-based dog rescue. Her devotion and knowledge for canines combined with more than a decade of hospitality experience can be a great benefit to you!
Did you know?
Although dogs tend to bark and howl, they are not primarily vocal communicators. They listen when we speak to them, but the truth is that they read us and communicate through their nose and eyesight. The head turns upon hearing our voice is a response to the tone and speed we are using when talking to them. Dogs use body language as well as movement to send messages to other canines and humans.
Pro tip: In addition to your voice, use your hand and body posture as signals to communicate with your dog.
