„Dogtastic” stands for science and reward-based training.

I am not using long outdated methods based on force, pressure, intimidation, fear and suppression. Because with such methods you do not only create a lot of problems in the medium and long-term, but also destroy the so valuable, trusting bond between you and your dog.

Instead, I am using the principle of positive reinforcement. Behaviors that are reinforced, repeat themselves. The dog learns which behavior is rewarding for him and shows it more often, while the non-rewarding behavior decreases.

So, instead of correcting your dog for “bad” behavior, I help you avoid the unwanted behavior in advance while teaching your dog an alternative, desirable behavior.

With this principle, we create a positive and lasting change in your dog’s behavior and help you as a dog owner to live harmoniously with your four-legged family member.
