HoC Founder - Poorvaja Kumar
I am Poorvaja Kumar, and I like wearing many hats- I’m a social development professional, a dancer, singer and theatre artist, a dance movement therapist, a Bollywood connoisseur, a veterinary assistant, a certified canine trainer and an internationally certified, working closely with therapy dogs. It is my endeavor to play multiple roles in my lifetime, much like a Bollywood Superstar but in ‘real-life’.
After a professional experience of nearly ten years and a double Masters from the London School of Economics and Political Sciences and the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, I decided to pursue my dream of spending my life with dogs ; many, many dogs.
I started ‘Humans of Canines’ to improve the relationship between humans, pet-parents and dogs. My interactive canine workshops include dancing, music and a lot of drama; pretty much combining all my passions together (well almost all, until Shahrukh Khan attends one of my workshops 🙂 ).
Poorvaja is certified to practice dog training and animal assisted therapy. She is also a certified Dance Movement Therapist and a Veterinary Assistant. She has achieved the 4th level in Canine Training and Behaviour, under John Rogerson. She was awarded the ‘Best Upcoming Dog Trainer Award’ at Pet Fed 2017 and her initiative, ‘Humans of Canines’ often gets featured in newspaper articles, seminars and short films. Apart from working with dogs, Poorvaja also volunteers at animal shelters and orphanages.
