Veronique Guit-de Rooij
Founder of K9 STES, working as a guide dog guide and Cynological massage therapist. Started as a sales specialist in an animal wholesaler.
“After years of working as a dog guide for security and surveillance dogs in security, I changed my course in 2017 by starting a business with my husband, Fred Guit. Since 2017 we run K9 STES together. We work with our 5 self-trained detection dogs, who are looking for power failures and diesel leaks.
Within our company I have mainly operational tasks. For example, I trained Lady and Mambo as specialised detection dogs. Both dogs are looking for power failures.
Two days a week I am in the training room to massage dogs and support dogs in sports and work.
I also enjoy exercising with dogs. In 2018 I learned about a new sport with dogs named canitrail. Running with your dog in wooded and hilly environments. A great sport, but intensive for dog and handler. That is why I wanted to know more about muscles and dog training. So I started and completed the training Cynological basic masseur, Body & Mind and Reiki 1 at “Dogs in Shape”.
As an instructor and future massage therapist, I must have the right knowledge and experience. That is why I still follow several courses, in order to work in a responsible and safe way.
At this moment I am following the 2nd module “Cynological massage specialist sports and allround’. After the 3rd module I will be a Cynological massage therapist. My ultimate goal is to become a dog osteopath, so I can guide dogs in sports and work.
Here is a summary of my courses that I have followed so far.”
