Blog posts by Elsa Blomster

Elsa Blomster is a Swedish dog trainer, instructor and author of the book “Retrieving for all Occasions”. She has three Golden Retrievers and she trains and has competed in obedience, rally obedience, tracking, working tests, field trials, and has obtained official qualifications in all these disciplines. In her every-day life she works as an organizational developer in IT for a construction company. Elsa is a popular instructor - holding courses in Sweden, Denmark and Norway on retrieving and clicker training. When her pupils a few years ago said to her “Training this way is so great and it’s so pleasant not having to be harsh to my dog”, “Why didn’t I come to you earlier for gun dog training” and “You should write a book about it” – it certainly warmed her heart and Elsa started to write the book “Retrieving for all Occasions” – recently published in the UK and the US – together with her ”partner in crime” Lena Gunnarsson. Together they own a publishing company – Klickerförlaget Göteborg AB - where they publish books, films and arrange clinics and courses about positive dog training. Elsa Blomster at Google+
