Trainer / Spain
Lídia was born in Lleida and moved to Barcelona when she was 18 to study computer science in the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya · BarcelonaTech (UPC). After few years working in the big city, she got her first dog, Bit, a two months old male, Jack Russell mix, found in the streets, and that completely changed her life. From that moment she knew she wanted to work with dogs, and four months later she adopted Any, a female, mix of hunter breeds.
She soon met Ernest and started studying dog training with him, getting more and more interested in nose work. She became a dog trainer and attended several scent detection and mantrailing seminars. She started Mantrailing Catalunya SAR team with Ernest almost 4 years ago and has been training with her dogs ever since. She trained several dogs to pass the GA K9 level 1 test performed by GA K9 European instructors in 2016. She and her dog Any also passed the test.
