Lena Gunnarsson is a Swedish dog trainer, instructor and author of the book ”Retrieving for All Occasions”. She has four cocker spaniels and she trains and has competed in field trials, obedience class III, tracking and she also trains scent detection with her dogs. Lena has been training animals for all her life and dogs for the past 18 years. Her experience of training horses, dogs and educating people has taught her quite a lot about the learning process. For almost 20 years she has as an organizational consultant with focus on supporting people to solve problems and encouraging them to take on challenges, which has made her a confident coach.

At Klickerförlaget they publish books, films and arrange clinics and courses about positive dog training.
