We are meeting in the best parks of Barcelona where we establish a safe space to train and develop together.
We are practicing everyday necessary skills with our dogs based on Urbane Obedience, and we are adding further exercises to make the sessions exciting for everyone (Loose Leash Walking, Nose Work, Recall, Agility, Impulse Control).
We have a maximum of 6 spots available for each group session to make sure we have enough time and attention to guide you and your dog during the training.
In every 60 minute session (45 minute training + 15 minute socialization) we are covering the basics in a park and preparing ourselves for the busy streets of the city.
After preparations we are heading out for a street walk, where our takeaway will be solid and based on real experiences we acquire together.

Graduality, consistency, routine.
There is a huge contrast between living with our dogs 24/7 doing everything together and the massive absence of ours when we just go away, leaving our dogs in the unknown, on their own. Nowadays when human society is constantly changing in terms of our working routine, it affects the life of our dogs.
To see the end of the tunnel we need a deep understanding of our opportunities, devotion and consistency so our plan can become reality.
We will help you to build up a system where your best friend won't suffer while you are away.

One step closer to the future
Hands down. Let’s face it, dog training is really just human coaching - helping people how to bring about behaviour change with their pooches. Years ago we were really attached to the idea of needing to physically see and touch the dog. However with all the necessary experiences through digital change we saw that there are certain cases where an online approach fits better the solution.
Not only is digital training more financially viable, it allows us to help everyone - regardless of their location.
At home, on the street, in the park
Our methods help you communicate with your dog, strengthen your bond and facilitate learning. Whether basic manners or more serious behavioral concerns, regular, good quality training creates an enthusiastic student who trusts their guardian and is keen to learn, adapts its life to ours
Every dog is unique, every situation is different.
There are similarities in cases and possible treatment processes in the short and long term. You tell us what makes your relationship unique, we will help you to find the adequate solution to bring it to the next level.
We focus on the mutual understanding.
Our work mainly focuses on the relationship between dogs and their people based on mutual understanding, trust and respect, so we can rely on each other even in the most complex situations, so that our bond can be an open, never ending source of happy synergies.
The quality of this relationship is one of the most important segments within the personality traits of dogs, so to discern the circumstances of the four legged individual we intend to collaborate with and we are keen to augment the knowledge and responsibility of their people.
We want to make our dogs proud of themselves. Because everyone needs a purpose in life. Our dogs are relying on us, so we can help them fulfill their hunger for achievements.
We only have to listen to them, showing us what they are keen for.
We love long lasting relationships
Throughout the years we saw so many youngsters finding their paths to become stable adults. It's fascinating to see the glowing pride in their humans`s eyes in the meantime. This is why we create a constant feedback circle with our clients to assure us all that everything is going the right way on a long term, and everybody is happy with the steps that we are taking together..
We build these relationships on mutual trust, honesty and reliability so we can all get what we want.
We act with the spirit of presence
If you work with dogs, it's maybe the most important to see the world with their perspective. To be present, to live the moment. This is why we are dependent on our dogs activities, guiding them adequately so they can find the best decisions possible in every situation.
We facilitate individuality
There is no one best way to handle every situation. Every dog is unique. Throughout their lives they built up long sequences of experiences, traits that are mixing up in their characters. While they also all certainly have specific needs due to their breed, age or gender.
So according to these differences we are always looking for the most suitable methods and tools to handle these individuals in those situations.
We bring nature close to modern society
In the last few decades our dogs have become more and more part of our families. While enjoying their companionship, we have to give them all the possible opportunities to be dogs. To experience the world in the natural way. To live the consequences of their own decisions in a controlled manner. To find their own balance, their meaning of life. Because without a purpose we can give them all our love, there will be something really important missing.
To feel themselves grounded. To be proud of themselves..

Hey, my name is Richard and since 2016 I started working with my soulmate, Maxim to help other dogs and their humans to live happy lives.
In 2018 I became a certified dog trainer and dog behavior consultant in Barcelona and I am part of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, APDT.
I'm not only a dog trainer but I coach people on how to co-live in harmony with their pooches both in specific situations and on a long term basis by providing individual and group training sessions.
My passion for learning about the behavior of dogs and their people grows daily.
I continue to invest in my studies and I am currently working on my Certification for Professional Dog Trainers, CPDT-KA assessment.
Meanwhile I continue to train and coach hundreds of diverse dogs and their people both in Barcelona and all over Europe via online consultations.
