About me

Anastasia.png

Animals are my passion since childhood. I have been interested in everything related to them for as long as I can remember. I grew up reading books by Gerald Durrell, James Herriot, Joy Adamson and Karen Pryor. My favorite programs on TV were documentaries about the life of animals.

 

Without any doubt, I went to study veterinarian medicine, and several years worked in that field. Later I realized that I’m interested more in the behavioral aspect of animal welfare.

Як я працюю

About my approach

anastasia_dog.png

For me, the most important thing is the physical and psychological well-being of your animal. Our consultations always begin with a detailed analysis of your animal's conditions of living. At this stage, many problems can already be identified and corrected.

After that, I carefully analyze your animal's behavior problem, look for its causes, and discuss with you a plan to modify this behavior. Some of the techniques I use: shaping, luring, behavior selection, creating alternative behaviors, environmental modification and management. I do not use aversive ammunition, physical and psychological pressure or theory of dominance.

I do not use and condemn the deliberate use of aversive methods of education, but I understand very well that sometimes, in desperation, people are forced to resort to them, because they simply do not know what else to do. Please do not be afraid or ashamed to tell me that you have used physical punishment and pressure. I will not quarrel and judge you for this, it is important for me to understand all these points in order to understand the problem.

My task is to teach you how to work with your animal. I try to use clear examples and media materials. I’m ready to answer all your questions, and more than once. The main thing is that you understand every detail of your animal behavior.

I am attentive not only to the condition of your animal, but also to yours. I, like no one else, understand how frustrating and challenging it can be to communicate with a difficult animal. When choosing a behavior modification plan, I try to make it work not only for your animal but also for you: because we are all different, and we all have different life situations.

How consultation takes place:

1

You choose the format, convenient time, and consultation date by clicking 

"set a meeting" and paying for the recording. You’ll receive a link to a Zoom call and all

the details in your mail immediately after registration.

2

Read the consulting agreement, fill out the questionnaire, and send the necessary
video materials at least twenty-four hours before our meeting.

3

The first consultation allows you to understand your request, assess the animal's condition,
and your interaction with her. We discuss the approximate proposed plan and scope of work.
I give you the first exercises and tasks, and we will agree on the further format of cooperation.

4

After the meeting, you will receive a synopsis with a description of the exercises, and for two
weeks, we will be in touch. And I will answer your questions in text format if you have them.

5

The number of necessary consultations depends on the specific case and your needs.
Sometimes, it is possible to do it for one consultation: getting a scheme and direction of
work could be enough. Others need 2-3 consultations to formulate a plan of action, get
feedback, and ensure everything is going well. Someone is more comfortable in long-term
cooperation when I support a carer's work with an animal for many months.
