For your dog to perform well and adapt to your lifestyle, you need to set him up for success, which basically means to provide him with necessary antecedents; these are the things that happen before a particular behaviour occurs, reaching more or less back into the past, ie from seconds to weeks, even to years. There are things that make the behaviour of your dreams more likely, circumstances that make the behaviour of your desire less likely; and there are expectations we have that are unrealistic to dogs. Be realistic about what you expect of your dog, and enhance your dog's world such it can perform well.
Spend time with your dog actively as well as passively, ie by
- being around your dog
- observing your dog
- getting dog-literate (that is learn your dog's language)
- grooming, walking, playing, other social activities
Provide your dog with an environment that fulfills your dog's mental and behavioural needs to keep him behaviourally and mentally healthy; main pillars upon which mental and behavioural health rely are
Also, every dog has inelastic behaviours that can't just be thrown into the long grass or put on spike altogether; bear this in your mind.
- every dog needs to have at least ..
- enough, healthy sleep
- ready water and tasty, nutritious food
- possibility to toilet
- opportunities to spend time with his family and mates
Provide your dog always with these. Only a behaviourally and mentally healthy and well-balanced dog can perform well!
Sometimes it happens that while we are generally happy to share our lives with dogs, one or two behaviours our dogs show are annoying us, or driving us nuts. As dog people who love dogs, we devour what we can get in our hands on dogs: articles, TV shows, books, blogs and so on. But sometimes we still have open questions on our dogs, or wonder how we could enrich our dog's life more.
That's where my services come in!

In 2006, I graduated from CertoDog dog trainer academy with a certificate in dog training. I went to ATN academy for animal psychology and behaviour in 2007 to enroll in a course on dog behaviour and psychology, which I completed in 2009 with a diploma in dog behaviour and psychology and a certificate as pet dog behaviour counsultant. In 2015, I got registered at local veterinary office of the district of Soest, following an amendment of the animal welfare act requiring anyone who wishes to guide dog owners for money in terms of training and behaviour services; also, I earned a verified certificate in animal behaviour and welfare by the university of Edinburgh, upon accomplishing a MOOC-course.
