My Super Nero

I wrote the following text a few weeks after Nero passed but for some reason could not bring myself to publish it on the blog. It’s now been almost one year to the day since Nero crossed that rainbow bridge and even though reading this still brings me to tears, I feel it is finally […]

Dogs that dislike dogs.

When your dog doesn’t mix well with other dogs life can get complicated. Shout out to all the dog owners who know exactly what I mean. I’ve been there. I completely understand the emotional stress and humiliation a reactive dog can cause. Taking an enjoyable walk with your dog is tainted by their dislike of other […]

The Shepherdess.

Beneath this mask there is more than flesh, beneath this mask there is an idea and ideas are bulletproof… Let’s be honest, I’m not your typical trainer and I tend to do things a little differently – including my dog blog. This post has next to nothing to do with dog training (although you could count the […]

Puppy love.

A street of woofs and wags… This Valentines day there’s lots to bark about! We’ve teamed up with the best street in Haarlem, the Gierstraat, to be part of their Valentines shenanigan ‘the street of love’. The Gierstraat is full of our favourite, dog-friendly, independent stores and they’ve all come together to create something truly unique! You can check […]

Dog owner challenge.

It’s not black and white when there is grey in-between. Many of us share our homes and  lives with one or more canine companions. As dog owners, we probably class ourselves as ‘dog lovers’ who will happily make acquaintance with a new furry face and welcome the wet nose that invades our personal space. In theory, […]

The IMDT

Last month I spent six days in Scotland being educated and challenged by the wonderful individuals that make this canine education provider one of a kind. It’s been an eye-opening experience into the wonderful world of woofers and I am eager to put all I’ve learnt into practice. After researching practically every dog course available in the UK, I decided The IMDT (Institute of Modern Dog Trainers) was […]

Unleash the hounds!

Do you remember that first time you let your dog off-leash? Were you nervous? Afraid they would run off and not come back? Perhaps you were worried about other fluffs reacting to your fur-baby in a negative way? There are all kinds of reasons dog owners decide to keep their four-pawed partners on a lead – from a previous […]

Bark in the Park.

Haarlem is such a wonderful place to walk your dog. There are so many woodland places to explore and the best thing is that the locals don’t have a fear of letting dogs interact. Too often I find fellow dog owners afraid of Nero. Some pick up their little dogs upon seeing us approach or give us […]

Our Amsterdam adventure.

  It’s time to put the training to the test. If you’ve been following our Instagram account zero2nero, you’ll know that Nero and I recently took a trip to Amsterdam so I could monitor his behaviour and training progress in a busy environment. If you’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting this vibrant city, you’ll know central Amsterdam […]
