CEO / Lead
Gabriela Schneeberger, the head of "Feureus" and CEO, was born and grown up in the heart of Switzerland, Ringgenberg/Interlaken, which is located in the Bernese Oberland at the beautiful Lake of Brienz.
Since 1982, Gabriela is successfully active in the business of dog training and the behavior of the dogs as well as in the interaction of human and dog. Already in early years, Gaby was very engaged as a course leader of Youth & Sports (J+S, Polysport).
Since 1998, as an achievement judge for the Swiss federal cynology society, Gabriela is also fully associated with the national dog sport and its activities.
Since 2002, Gaby is also active in the security sector (area dog on duty). Each mission is different, always new situations, the team human/dog is constantly being challenged and thereby they get matched to each other even more.
In 1998, Gabriela became fully self-employed and in 2000 she opened a practice for animal psychology / behavioral therapy as well as the Feureus dog training/school in Linden/Jassbach (Switzerland, BE).
Various instruction courses and studies (e.g. studying dog psychology and behavior therapy with ATN graduation, graduation as official certified medical clerk, expert in dog knowledge and dog training or in the sector dog food), gives Gabriela a huge know-how and a founded specialized knowledge for her activities and job.
This specialized knowledge, as well as the enormous experience, flows likewise into her kennel/breed of Belgian shepherd dogs (Malinois, von Feureus, FCI), which Gaby established in 2002.
