I´ve been training dogs since 2013, I started this amazing journey when I rescued my mastiff puppy Spike. He was the first dog I´d had and he turned out to be absolutely huge, so I knew I owed it to him and society to learn about his breed, dog behaviour in general and how to train him.
It wasn´t an easy road, I spent a long time and too much money with trainers that weren´t the right fit for him or my beliefs.
During this journey I met a wonderful therapy dog trainer who took me under their wing and, with many others in the dog world, I learned what I needed to make Spike the incredible dog he finally was.
I didn´t want people to have to go through what I did and my vocation is now to create happy dogs in happy homes.
My mission is to teach frustrated dog owners how to have the perfect dog.
During my years training other peoples dogs it became apparent to me that I was not really solving the root of a problem, that my training was serving as a remedy, but not the cure. I found myself working with dogs who needed behaviour modification which entails unravelling years of learnt behaviours.
So a change had to happen, I decided I needed to work directly with the owners, to teach them how to train their dogs and more importantly teach people how their response to every behaviour moulds the dog, how we inadvertently reward unwanted behaviours and how we can identify the correct behaviours we should be rewarding to obtain the behaviours we want from our dogs.
I believe dog owners education starts from they minute they decide to take on that adorable ball of fluff you just want to cuddle all day.
We need to take in to account our family dynamics, our lifestyle, what we actually want the dog for, the time we have to dedicate to the dog, and a family conversation needs to be had so you are all on the same page.
Apart from teaching the basic training such as house boundaries, toilet training, walking, crate training and recall, I teach people how to train their dog with the biggest superpower which is to relax.
