Ícono de una buena idea

At Maestríanimal we address Applied Ethology to the behavior of dogs and cats in order to promote and guarantee their well-being. We do this through deep scientific insight into animal mind and emotion with a combination of behavior modification and environmental enrichment tools.


We are committed to building and developing harmonious and healthy relationships with animals, improving the well-being and quality of life of multispecies families.


We are Catalina and David, a Colombian married couple who have three beautiful children and a deep love for nature, animals and their behavior. We have always lived with wonderful dogs and cats who have been our great loves and teachers. 


We love sharing our knowledge and experience with others. For this reason, we have participated as teachers in many courses, among which are the basic and advanced courses in Applied Ethology with the CES University that we have been teaching since 2010.

I want to express my gratitude to Cata and David and their teachings in the two Ethology diploma courses in which I participated, because they made it possible for me to dare to start the path to fulfill my life purpose: "Accompany human BEINGS and puppies to that they can develop their Well-BEING and live with Well-BEING”.
