About

Dedicated

Birgit is dedicated to training that is ruled by ethics, a training system that is not only humane, compassionate, and reliable, but is also based on the latest scientific studies.

Educated

This form of training constantly incorporates the most reliable scientific findings, and furthers an evolutionary progress toward a more harmonious relationship between humans and their dogs.

Dogfluencing

As you may have guessed by now, Birgit loves dogs! The love she has for our canine companions is the very reason behind her business and her services. She stands for the term Progressive Reinforcement Training and an ethical way of training dogs that involves no form of physical or psychological intimidation.

Experienced

Birgit has more than 30 years of experience, competing in obedience and tracking, as well as training and handling of detection dogs. She completed her education as temperament tester with the Swiss Kennel Club SKG and apprenticed with Assistance Dog International ADI, learning from and working with guide dogs, service dogs as well as therapy dogs. Birgit then became supervisor of the puppy early education program at Dogs with Wings Assistance Dog Society, and started her own business.

After returning to Switzerland Birgit started her dog training services in 2015. She is an approved Dog Trainer by the Veterinary Inspection Office of the Canton of Zurich (VETA ZH-HAB-0622-240814), and a NHB specialist, certified by the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (BLV).
