Dog Behaviourist & Trainer

“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.”- Orhan Pamuk, Turkish novelist

My professional career in this domain started as I completed a 6-months internship and training program with one of the world's leading dog trainers, Hans Schlegel, in Switzerland. 

 

Well known for his police dog training programs worldwide, his unique ability to connect and communicate with dogs, ultimately also made him one of the most respected trainers in the field of family pets.

 

In 2009, I proudly obtained my diplomas in the fields of dog behaviour analysis and family dog training.

I have since then been working with a large number of individual dog-man teams throughout the U.A.E., Germany and the U.S. to bridge the communication divide between canines and their owners. 

 

In 2020, I have embarked upon a 2-year canine behaviour study at ATN AG, the leading German-speaking institution for ethology and animal psychology in Switzerland.

 

My aim is to always convey the most innovative and efficient training approach to my clients to help them achieve the highest level of connection with their four-legged friend.

Puppy Trainer & Canine Nutritionist

“Everyone thinks they have the best dog and none of them are wrong.” -W.R. Purche

Having had dogs most of my life, I’ve always been fascinated with their behaviour and body language, ethology in general and the notion of the ‘Dog Whisperer’.    

 

My professional career in the world of dog training, started with a year-long hands-on/ in-situ training with family pets, everything from 6-week old puppies to 10-year old dogs. 

I currently specialise in Puppy Training and Canine Nutrition; my goal is to help families start their dog journey on the right foot (or paw!)  Additionally, I guide families who are experienced dog owners, who would like a fresh perspective on how to achieve a calm and happy household with their new puppy.   

My training philosophy revolves around developing the dog-man relationship; fostering communication and a bond between you and your dog.  I aim to form a deep relationship, based on a balance of trust and respect, so that your dog listens to you, and not only what’s in your hand!   

A lot of the time I am training the owners, not only their dogs!
