PETRA OLTHETEN


Professional Dog Lover

Dogs are my passion and I truly love what we do!


I am absolutely crazy about all dogs, with a passion for the working breeds, Dobermanns especially.


I trained as a Dog School Instructor with O&O, (the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Instructeurs in Hondenopvoeding en -opleiding) and I am still a member to date. The training is comparable to the CPDT in the US or ABTC in the UK. Knowledge assessed by the Dutch Kennel Club through complementary regular courses. 


Never stop learning. Besides being a dogtrainer an Certified Canine Instructor I also see myself as a student, the scientifical developments in the canine world are ongoing, there's still lots to discover!


My teaching style is quite direct and hands-on, but never too serious.


I'm really looking forward to meeting you and your dog and aiding you in bettering your knowledge and skills.


I advocate for a good, stable and trustfull relationship between humans and dogs.

Once you have established that, nothing is impossibe!
