In order to do justice to all dogs, including mine, I take in at most 2 dogs at the same time.
My home, with garden, is in Kingston upon Thames (KT1 3AU).
The nearest vet is only 400 metres away.

Please note that due to the pandemic, there are certain regulations when arriving and picking up as well as visiting your dog.

In short: Education and training is extremely formative, especially during the first 16 to 18 weeks of the dog's life. If this has not happened to a sufficient degree, much can still be worked through within the first 12 months. Even after that, it is still possible.
However, it becomes more and more difficult and protracted.
If certain things, such as functioning communication, rules in the family, are not clear to the dog AND the accompanying human, then harmonious living together in everyday life becomes more difficult. In the worst case, the dog develops behavioural disorders, such as pronounced aggression, fears, breaking out....
If it has already come to this, then not only an intensive catching up of the basic training is necessary, but often also special training.
I train from puppies to senior dogs.
Special coaching for families and dog holders with young children is also part of my repertoire.


Please note the requirements listed below for the admission of your dog.

Puppies do not need to be fully vaccinated before they are socialised! PLEASE do not isolate your puppy! The risk of puppies becoming ill is much lower than the risk of them experiencing lasting problems due to lack of socialisation or socialisation too late. Well-intentioned isolation is one of the most common mistakes!

Please note that you will not get a perfect dog after one week! It remains the case that you have to continue training at home. Dog behaviour is the result of your behaviour.
Problem behaviour is only the visible tip of the iceberg. The causes of this problem behaviour lie beneath the surface of the water and make up the largest part of this iceberg.
This training week is about analysing the problem behaviour, working out and trying different strategies to find out which is most successful with your dog. Although your dog will already be trained and you will also see successes, the real added value lies above all in the report with concrete recommendations for action for you. 
Everyday rules, communication rules, descriptions of exercises, solution strategies in case of a concrete problem situation and, of course, showing the daily progress are the contents of this report.
You will also receive daily videos and photos.

Why is training for humans also important to me?

Even if the love of dogs for humans is natural, the behaviour we expect from our dogs is not natural. The dogs have to be taught it first. I want to create awareness that love, time and effort must be invested in dog training and that all family members should be involved. 
I think that is only fair.


Did you know that: 
70% of bites happen to children under the age of 10
• Two thirds of the dogs who bite children have
never before bitten a child
• between 25% - 33% of the dogs who bit were the family dog
• Children are most frequently bitten (61% of the time) when they come in contact with the dog's food or possessions
• this concerns dogs of
all breeds

(Data from Ph. D. Brian Hare, Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology at Duke University)
