Agnieszka Janarek

I am the founder of Tromplo, and my academic background is in Applied Behavior Analysis. I aim to bridge the gap between science and practice, teaching my students how to apply scientific knowledge to real-world scenarios. My goal is to dispel myths and rely on reliable education based on scientific and ethical principles in the animal training world.

At Tromplo, my courses focus on empowering trainers to work independently and develop essential skills for working with animals. I prioritize giving animals choices in our training interactions, regardless of the task at hand.

Creating Tromplo has been a dream come true for me. It provides a safe space for positive reinforcement trainers to learn from one another and apply the latest scientific methods to enhance learning in our students.

In 2016, I founded the Nosework Poland Association, which has become the largest Nosework sports organization in Poland. While I am no longer affiliated with the organization, I am proud of its growth. I am also a caretaker of three adopted dogs: Gacek, Gapcio, and Gunia.

Currently, I am a doctoral student at the Institute of Psychology at Jagiellonian University, working on my PhD thesis on anxiety behavior in dogs under the supervision of Professor Przemysław Bąbel.
