Carmen Mayer is a dog sports and clicker training enthusiast. She has taken part in several clicker trainer seminars and talks, and is actively competing in Canine Freestyle and Heelwork to Music with her two beagles. Besides this, Carmen is an internationally renowned judge of this sport. When her now 12-year-old Beagle developed hip dysplasia, Carmen thought of ways to target specific muscle groups, with the help of some canine freestyle elements that she adjusted and developed to fit her dog's needs. With the help of an experienced canine physiotherapist, this is how Gymnastricks came about. A grammar school teacher for English, German and Psychology, Carmen Mayer also offers workshops on clicker and trick training, and is always eager to learn more, especially about canine health, which is why she is now training to become a canine physiotherapist.
