My name is Marika Paschoud; I am an english dog trainer and dog behaviorist in Lausanne, canton de Vaud with a 10 years experience.  I have had dogs and cats all my life. I have followed courses (practical and theoretical) on canine and feline education & behaviour, and also accumulated a very complete library (books and DVDs) on dog and cat behaviour. (See below in green for cats).

This way I have been able to select and assemble the best practical tips on canine education and dog behavior (behaviour). Also clicker and clicker training.

In my pet school I will coach you with a calm, simple and effective method, so that your dog will desire to work with you. My method respects the dog and uses the dog's natural reactions. It will be effective and gentle with the following educational problems:

  • puppy training, puppy behaviour
  • dog training, dog behavior
  • failing to obey, failing to return when called
  • nervoussness, nervous dog
  • puppy or dog toilet training
  • destructive behaviour
  • dog who pulls on the lead (leash)
  • jumping up
  • problems with other dogs
  • persistent barking
  • dog behaviour problems, etc....
  • I do not do collective puppy classes, or collective dog classes
  • Mandatory, obligatory courses

If you apply my dog training method consistently, you will have a well behaved dog, who will listen to you, and above all who will trust you.

MENTALCHAT: As I have a lot of experience with cats, I can help you with the following problems: litter problems, intercat feuds, agression, anxiety, furniture scratching, behaviour problems etc...
