Training is about the relationship and trust between you and your dog

What we offer

Who am I?


I am Maaike, a social worker with a great passion for dogs. I fell in love with dogs  when I was a child. My family started with working dogs, Border Collies, to herd sheep and do dog sports, agility about 3 times a week.

When I was 16, I adopted my first dog from a shelter in Spain and that was the beginning of my journey to Spain.

From the age of 16, I used my school holidays to work in dog shelters in Spain. Later in 2015, I moved to Spain and now run a small shelter for streetdogs.

With all this experience, there was only one thing missing: I wanted to be a dog trainer! Now I am and I have successfully completed my Professional Dog Training course in Granada, I am ready to start training dogs!
