Catja B. Pedersen
Passionate about off cue behaviors, shaping, doggie-zen and giving the learner choice in the training.
Catja is living with a retired cocker spaniel, who still loves to work, and a crazy australian koolie, that is preparing for competitions.
Her focus is working from the 80(!) basic skills from Canis that makes it possible to train just about anything. Dividing all training into the smallest behaviors possible, before adding the cue and starting the backchaining process, is one of the things she is known for.
She is a firm believer in helping as little as possible and uses shaping where ever its possible.
Catja is working full-time with teaching and does seminars online and workshops in both Denmark and internationally. For the last 10 years, she has been doing a clickertrainer education in Denmark, and is passionate about spreading the word about clickertraining.
She has been doing clicker training since she crossed over in 2008 and have competed succesfully in the highest level of obedience, tracking and search and rescue. She has also been working with drug detection work over the past years.
She is eager to always learn more, and try her very best to take part in all kind of workshops, seminars and conferences that has anything to do with behavior analysis. The community of training and ABA is her favorite place to be.
The learners she works with are mainly dogs and their owners, although she does quite a lot of training with her son to.
