Hey, I’m Mari Valgma

I am a Certified Professional Canine Fitness Trainer (CPCFT), passionate about helping dog training enthusiasts boost their dogs confidence by teaching their dogs how to use their bodies and control their movements in new and challenging situations.

Movement Puzzles first started in 2020 as a fitness training tool to help working and sport dogs with dynamic balance and coordination skills. But it quickly came out that Movement Puzzles are so much more!

Our students started reporting improvements in their dogs’ confidence, reactivity training, focus during sessions, independent performance, obstacle commitment…

Soon I realized that my true passion is in helping dogs feel more confident and empowered in their lives and activities. That’s where Movement Puzzles can really help both dogs and their human partners live the best possible lives!

Within a couple of years Movement Puzzles have become hugely popular and I’m proud to say our we now offer a safe, kind community and amazing training experience to more than 1000 puzzle training enthusiasts.

My ideas and confidence boosting training have also been featured in Fenzi Dog Sports Academy (where I’m also a proud alumni!), Agility Nation and numerous international dog training summits.
