Dog Training and Behaviour Advice in The Hague

Dog Training and Behaviour in The Hague

I help dog owners in The Hague and surroundings (Rijswijk, Delft, Westland and region). I specialize in fear and fear aggression, but I can also help with the common complaints such as separation anxiety, toilet-training, pulling on the lead, or over-excitement.

Behaviour therapy

How does it work?

Evaluation: We start with taking the dog’s behaviour history. You will complete a detailed questionnaire that helps me zoom in on the problem and its causes. We then sit down together so I can explain and demonstrate, and so we decide together on the best training options. I send you the recommendations in writing in the training plan.

Training: For problems that you can resolve independently, the process ends with the training plan. Most issues require practical training and therapy with me. Once these sessions are completed, we regroup with an evaluation and follow-up advice. I stay by your side throughout the training program to answer questions and give support.

 

How much does it cost?

  • History takingin-house evaluation/advice and training plan take 3x hours at 65 euros/hour.
  • Practical training and therapy sessions: These last 45 minutes and cost 40 euros.
  • Follow-up questions and support: During a training plan, brief questions and inter-session support is free.
  • Closing evaluation and follow-up recommendations: This is scheduled in 1x one-hour session at 65 euros/hour.

My methods

  • Evidence-based: I keep up with the important scientific discoveries about dogs to bust myths and let you train in an effective and informed way.
  • Stimulating for you and the dog: I use no intimidation or force, and try to make the process motivating for you and your dog so you leave each lesson eager for the next one.
  • Non-judgmental: You love your dog, and you’re doing something about his problem. That’s all I need to know.
  • Affordable: I teach you to be an independent trainer, so you can emancipate yourself from me as soon as possible.

Force-Free, Scientific-Approach Dog Training

Walk in confused, walk out relieved

  • You’ll walk in finding your dog embarrassing, dominant, spoilt, stubborn, and weird. You’ll walk out understanding why he does what he does.
  • You’ll walk in feeling shamed by countless others telling you: “It’s always the owner’s fault”. You’ll walk out understanding the real causes, and aware of what you’ve already accomplished.
  • You’ll walk in having no clue how far the problem could go. You’ll walk out with a clear prognosis.
  • You’ll walk in thinking nothing can be done. You’ll walk out with a detailed training plan. A plan using no violence or intimidation. A plan based on scientific research and best practice.

Private dog training

How does it work?

As a head trainer at OhMyDog! I know that some dogs aren’t made for group classes. You can still reach school-quality training level through private lessons, and for a comparable price.

You can either put together:

  • A standard package that gets you the training school certificate for the selected level (puppy manners, basic obedience, advanced obedience); or
  • Zoom in on one particular skill and go for a 5x week package to perfect the loose leash walking, the recall, or the leave it.

I also throw in surprise tricks like teaching your dog to detect money or find your keys for you or lead you home.

How much does it cost?

For pure obedience training (i.e. with no underlying behaviour problem), I charge 40 euros/45 minutes. I will guide you accordingly if I think your dog needs behaviour therapy evaluation.
