star OneMind Dogs Coach
Minna’s kind of agility looks like this: both the handler and the dog have their responsibilities and both trust each other to do their job. There is great connection and understanding between the two.
Minna is a very precise handler who wants to have all the possible tools in her handling toolbox. She says she gets the best kicks when both she and her dog can show off their skills.
Minna is passionate about seeing agility courses from the dog´s perspective and about understanding the dog´s lines as well as the three Cs, and then making good handling choices based on these facts. Minna loves perfecting different handling techniques, proofing obstacle skills by distraction training and solving problems.
Minna has an eye for detail but tries to make sense of the big picture as well. She says: “I try to find a way to make every team get to their next level in every training. Sometimes it might be something big and other times a small thing might make all the difference. I am encouraging and praise a lot, but also point out the things that need more work. I’m here to help you fix those on the spot and with homework. I like to give handlers those light bulb moments that I have had myself so many times when training with my OneMind Dogs Coaches.”
Minna has trained with OneMind Dogs Coaches for over ten years. She has been coaching agility as a hobby since early 2000´s. In 2015, she started coaching full time at Mikko´s and Mari´s Active Dog and at her own Koivet-Agility. Minna is also a qualified veterinarian and has worked in this profession for 13 years. She is studying mental training with Anne Talvitie to become a Mental Sport coach.
