star Leading Coach
Tuulia is a very goal-oriented and competitive handler; and she is at her best in tough situations. Although Tuulia is determined in everything she does, she also thinks life should not be taken too seriously. She says you have to enjoy what you’re doing and put your heart into it, or you are only wasting your precious time.
With hard work and determination she has achieved good results in international competitions and won a silver medal at the World Championships. In agility she is fascinated by the concept that you can always be better and keep on developing all the time. Once you have felt at one mind with your dog in the agility course, you want to experience it over and over again. And that is the feeling Tuulia wants her students to get.
As an instructor Tuulia is friendly and encouraging. While she can be exacting, she always gives positive feedback. She explains things patiently and makes sure that everybody will understand and learn. Tuulia feels that she can also learn from every student and dog, and that develops her as an instructor and a handler. She feels lucky to be able to do what she loves most for a living.
As well as spending time with her dogs, Tuulia loves to eat good food, drink beer and go to Finnish saunas with friends. And she likes to compete in plenty of other sports.
