Our collaboration started in 2009 after Siv took Maria’s courses several times. Our common goal – to constantly develop as coaches – made us discover that we were both heading in the same direction while complementing each other.
Maria is the experienced one with many years of experience and Siv is the creative one who constantly tries to find better ways forward.
After several late nights with discussions and new theories, it was clear that we wanted to share this with others. That’s how the No limit obedience concept came about and started with a number of online courses and a member’s blog seeing the light of day!
Over time, the books Best Day-Everyday and several other books only available in swedish was published.
We constantly have new projects underway and our goal is for as many people as possible to join us on our journey towards the best possible dog training!
“When you no longer get better – you get worse” That is Maria’s motto in training – move on – take the next step and make use of all the knowledge you gain access to. Regardless of the competition goal, most people are inspired by development and being able to find the right way forward for their own dog. According to Maria, dog training at its best means exactly this. She has really shown that it really works by taking dog after dog to the absolute top!
Maria has competed at SM and national team level in tracking, search, obedience and rescue. The results speak for themselves: She has 6 SM gold, 6 SM silver and 2 bronze as best results. In 2000, she also won the WC for rescue dogs in Austria, together with the dog Kogården’s Bull. With the dog Vallmyra Ylle, Maria has been part of the Swedish national team 8 years in a row with team gold at the WC and an individual 5th place as the best result. In 2021 Maria took a WC silver in obedience with the dog Bryggarskogens Apps only 0.25 p from gold. Maria has so far participated in SM with 8 different dogs.
Right now, Maria competes with two dogs, an elite-class obedience border collie Bryggarskogens Apps and in IGP and bruks, the malinois Blacknecs C-Ega has just started his career. Maria holds courses all over the world and is also an obedience judge.
Siv has always been the positive, happy and a-little-crazy dog trainer who, in the space of one year, has gone from three Border Collies to three Malinois. Nobody disagrees that her motto is “life is a circus” when she arrives carrying her huge bags filled with toys. Nowhere else can one find dog training that is so much fun!
Siv has competed on the national Norwegian team in both obedience and mondioring. Her excellent result at the Norwegian championship in 2011 with “Kry” assured her participation in the Nordic championship where she finished in the 9th place.
Some serious training with her second Border Collie “Vips” made her reach the second place in the Norwegian championship in 2013, a result of great importance.
After 10 years of practicing obedience, Siv became interested in mondioring and started in this sport with “Indy, a 7-year old Malinoise. As Siv is never afraid of challenges, she competed for the first time in Class 3 in the Nordic championship, which she won!
Siv is now also working with “Pan”, a 3-year old Malinois, which whom she will compete in obedience, as well as “Peppy”, 7-month old, whom she trains in obedience and mondioring.
