You and your dog will learn how to easily move through your daily routine. We will also look into challenging situations and check what you both need to learn to manage this easily, taking into consideration your dogs’ personality as well like your expectations. There are always two sides of a story likewise in a relationship. Both need to be heard and realized in order to be happy and successful. 

Helping you:Need based training

After our first contact via email or phone, you will get a questionnaire about you and your dog. This is to cover formal aspects as well as to get an idea about you both and your current starting point and to clarify your visions for your future relationship.

Our first meeting

We schedule our first meeting so we can both get to know each other. Where we meet is depending on you. It should be an environment where you feel comfortable and safe. It can be inside or outside. You will get to know me and my training philosophy. We clarify what you and your furry friend need to learn. We will discuss your training goals and define them. After this first meeting you will get a written summary and a first training plan.

your individual training

We take a look closer on what you want to work on. We define your goal and create a step by step training path. When it comes down to unwanted behaviour, we analyse why your dog is doing this. We will find alternative solutions for you both which will satisfy you and your dog as well. We will work out strategies to make sure you will reach your aim. You will also learn your dogs' way to communicate with you: canine body language. We will discuss the training plan and if needed, we adjust it to your pace. You will get training handouts for practicing at any time.

FeedbackWhat customers say

Julia her approach to dogs is refreshing and so dog friendly. Her insight in canine behaviour is profound and not only theoretical, she combines it with a true talent. When it comes to establishing a trusting and loving relationship with your dog, Julia is definitely the trainer for you. And is also helps that she is extremely people-friendly.

We have been to several dog trainers with our dog, and we were quite desperate. In the south of the Netherlands the old fashioned way to yell at your dog is still very much practiced. Also the use of electric collars which we did not like at all. After a couple of trainers we finally found Julia and we are so happy with her kind and loving approach. We weekly train with her in Amstelveen, and we have to travel 1,5 hours to the training and than 1,5 hours back to our house in Brabant, but it is certainly worth it. We have a happier dog and have established a much better relationship with our dog.

About meHow I will help you

Your dog is a creative problem solver - and just needs to know what actually he is supposed to do?

My dog is a creative problem solver, but it does not really overlap with my ideas. How many times I was lost and didn’t know what to do and how to teach my dog the “right”behaviour.  So it came down to the point where I either would have given my dog away or to start learning how to improve our living together. After several try outs with different trainers I decided to get to know all details in canine education by myself and started studying dog science at ATN in Switzerland and after three years I graduated as a dog trainer.

My studies brought me through canine ethology, excessive barking, fear and aggression in dogs and also anti chasing training to name a view points on this journey.  As I am a believer that learning and especially science never ends, I enjoy attending regular further education seminars and get more and more an expert within this field. 

 

The education included the following training topics and more:

  • puppy development and education
  • canine behaviour and body language

So I learned a friendly way of teaching my dog how to manage difficult situations and to learn new things.  We gained a much more relaxed relationship and what is even more important, I have learned to see and to realize what my dog already does very well without being trained on it.

I am happy to pass these eye-opening experiences on to you!

Because I know how it feels when the dog and its behaviour might let you feel lost or even make you cry.

Because I know what it’s like when you are a stranger in the area or even in a new country whose language you don’t speak and you need someone to take the language barrier away from you.

Because I know how high the pressure of family and friends can be if your dog doesn’t behave well.

Because being lectured by other dog owners make you mad. Everyone seems to know it better than you or at least thinks he knows better….

If you think we fit together, then let’s get started.
