Workshops and lectures

I organize workshops and lectures on various topics of dog training. If you would like to organize a lecture or workshop yourself, I would also be happy to come to your club or dog school. Please contact me, even if the topic is not (yet) on the list.

Target group

All dog trainers who already implement non-violent training and would like to get to know this in interpersonal contact. We are in a relationship with so many things: with our animals, customers, employees, colleagues and and and and... Often the relationship with the animal seems simple and familiar, but the contact with other people seems difficult.

Are you familiar with any of the following situations?

  • The dog works well with you, but the person cannot accept and implement your training tips.
  • People only practice with their dog at dog training school and not at home.
  • Customers who have already had 10 dogs and can do everything better than you.


  • how to express yourself honestly, clearly and respectfully in such situations
  • how you can increase your customer loyalty.
  • how training for humans and animals can be made even more efficient.

Starting from the nonviolent training of the animals, parallels are drawn and the findings are presented - from the perspective of human communication. In the workshop you will experience a different way of communication with new possibilities for action. You will practice a cooperative way of working together in which conflicts are resolved and all participants are respected and perceived. You will learn to deal with yourself and other people in a sensitive way.

You will be introduced to important elements of non-violent communication according to Marshall B. Rosenberg:

  • To address a situation without reproach.
  • To show understanding for others, even if you disagree with them.
    - To listen to criticism, accusations and attacks without taking them personally.
    - To stand up for your own concerns without wanting to be right.
    - Formulating your goals and values with clear requests.

The workshop is a mixture of presentation, group work, practical exercises and self-awareness. In addition to imparting knowledge, I attach great importance to the joy of learning and a trusting and relaxed atmosphere.

How can I improve my training?

We broaden and deepen the view on training. In this seminar you will learn how to apply the findings of learning theory to practical training. If you already work with clicker/marker signals and positive amplification and appreciate their possibilities, we can now go one step further.

We will discuss the following questions, among others.

  • What is the Matching Law and how does it help me in my training?
  • How do I use lock, click and feed point correctly?
  • How much time do I really buy myself with the marker signal?
  • How much craft is in the training?
  • What does effective training have to do with animal welfare?
  • Is training success predictable?

The seminar includes lectures, exchange in the group and practical exercises (for humans).
