  • What happens in the first lesson?
    Every dog and every human is unique and each dog-human team is very individual. That is why we get to know each other in the first hour - you and your dog me and I you. It is important to see if we are a good match. And then of course I would like to know everything about you: Where does your four-legged friend come from? What experiences has he already had? How is your relationship What is your everyday life like? What do you expect from me? How can I support you? And much more. We will discuss your topics and probably do a few exercises. Then I will give you my assessment of what is realistic, we will discuss the way forward and I am sure there will be some homework to do before your head is full.
  • What is important when you want to work on your dog's behavior?
    In short: You have to work on the cause and not fight the symptoms! For example: When your dog barks, there is a very specific reason for it. What I often see is that the owner shuts the dog's snout and says something like "be quiet now" - apart from the fact that it does not help at all, the dog has no desired learning effect and also feels left alone with his problem. Instead, we should understand why the dog is doing this and work on the origin. I would be happy to show you how you can help your dog better, fairer and more sustainably in such a situation.
  • By when does my dog have to learn something?
    Dogs are lifelong learners. Personally, I do not think that plans as to when my puppy must have learned what by which week is a good idea, since every dog is so individual - one runs through life fearlessly and cannot wait to discover more, for the other the same age it is still scary to leave the front door further than 3 meters. And both are fine. But demanding the same from both makes little sense, does it? The first dog enjoys it, the second is totally overwhelmed.
  • According to §11, I am a dog trainer - so do I train your dog?
    Yes, I train with dogs, but not yours actually. I am your coach, your companion, the translator. I explain the behavior of your animal to you, point out misunderstandings and support you. Of course, I also like to take the leash in my hand to make it clear how I would do it. Ultimately, it is about giving you tools that you can understand and work with.
  • When does a training session / coaching make sense?
    Topics such as anxiety, aggression, stress, barking, staying alone, driving in a car, pulling on a leash, hunting etc. are your daily companions - it does not have to stay that way Sometimes you do not understand why your dog behaves in a certain way and you get stuck in training or you are insecure Before you get a dog: What to expect? Is this even right for you? Where should the dog come from and which one should it be? You have chosen a dog and he will be moving in soon: You can already prepare now how you should behave best, how you can do a lot right from the start and which equipment really makes sense. When the dog is already there and you are looking for the right activity, want to check your point of view or are looking for new ideas and perspectives.
  • What should be considered before each training session?
    Before each training session, please check whether your dog is capable of mastering the required tasks. Is your dog pain free and healthy? Is he too hungry or thirsty? Did he get enough sleep? Can the task be solved with his level of knowledge? If your dog cannot master a task that he otherwise masters, question whether the environment/distraction is too difficult? Is he too stressed? Then take a day off. By the way, we "train" most things every day, with every interaction and every dog encounter, without explicitly training - often it's about changing one's own behavior in everyday life, how to deal with situations. A little reminder: living together and training is not about perfection - not for a second.

If you have any other questions, you can of course contact me at any time.
