Meet Dogo Trainers
We believe that to build a strong friendship we need to spend quality time with our friends, let it be training, playing or relaxing in a park together. Through positive reinforcement of good behavior, we can show our dogs what pleases us and what is expected.
Dogo trainers will guide you through training by reviewing video exams and answering your questions in the helpline.

She is a dog trainer known for introducing sport obedience in Brazil and for her respectful methods with her dogs.

I am a professional dog trainer, graduated from the Faculty of Dog Training in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Accredited by the A.N.A.C.P. in Spain. I have attended more than 20 courses and seminars dedicated to dog training and I participate in sports training competitions such as International Class Obedience (OCI) and Utility Sports Obedience (ODU).
I help people understand their pet’s emotions, and I teach the dog to control them. I show the owner that a dog that destroys their slippers and pulls on the leash is not a dog to be exchanged. I hold the title of “Dog Trainer of I and II degree” and certificates of participation in various seminars, such as: “Behavioral disorders therapy in dogs: aggression, anxiety, hyperactivity’’, “Dog communication, threatening and aggressive behaviour’’, published by the Polish Academy of Zoopsychology and Animal Therapy.
