Re-education

Raising a (young) dog is not always easy. Do you ever wonder … how to get your dog through the awkward puberty stage, can you still teach an adult dog or how can you best help your re-homed dog with his re-education? dogNL helps you with a Training plan, giving Advice for (re)training your dog.

Advice&Training plan or Behavioral counseling?
When fear or aggression is the issue I refer you to Behavioral therapy. When there is a behavioral issue it is necessary to first find out what the motivation is for this particular behaviour. Only then I can put together a step plan to curb your dog’s problem behaviour. Re-education is a program for teens showing unruly behaviour or for dogs who have just moved house and have to adjust to their new environment.

My certification, education and experience provide me the skills required to effectively and humanely train your dog. As a qualified Behavioral Counselor for Dogs and I am accredited by the Dutch foundation Certipet and a member of the Dutch association NVGH (formerly known as Alpha).
