services and projects

We offer training services that focus on teaching your dog the norms and behavior necessary in everyday life, and especially life spent outside of the home and out on the street. We carry out a training program based on skills necessary for living in the city that is useful, respectful, effective and very fun for you and your companion. The focus of this training program is the social relationship between you and your companion. We offer the possibility of either full training or specific conduct lessons, depending on your preference.

The model citizen

Training

Given the high number of dogs among us and the relatively small amount of time we are able to give them, the main sources of conflict and anxiety among dogs and their owners stem from emotional or behavioral problems. We work on all kinds of emotional problems, from the different causes of aggressive behavior to the numerous issues that can arise from stress. We are experts in the recovery and rehabilitation of scared or shy dogs. If you have any of these sorts of issues with your dog, don’t hesitate; give us a call.

Be happy again

Behavioral problems/ emotional management

We conduct group clases where we teach dogs how to understand their owners, improve their social capabilities, and educate them to be able to resolve any situation they find themselves in. We try to make the course extend beyond group obedience classes, but instead teach you to observe dogs and to understand their special language and behavior, both individually and in groups. In this way we show you how to manage, anticipate, and resolve any issue that can happen in daily life. Each class is adapted to the specific needs of puppies, young dogs, and adult dogs.

More fun with company

Working groups

Our personal and professional relationship with one of the most prominent dog shelters in Madrid has allowed us to understand the priorities and primary necessities of animal welfare organizations. Our work as volunteers, our classes for adopting families, volunteers and employees of dog shelters and welfare organizations; our consultancy work and help offered to address every aspect of new adoptions, the emotional wellbeing of dogs, their protection and the enrichment of their environment–all our work is oriented towards reaching a better understanding of these marvelous animals and raising awareness about pet adoption. Finding more help for these associations and conceiving of them as places for short-term stays, not long-term residences, until a happy and permanent house is found, is our notion of a better world.

That every dog has a real chance to find a new home

Our special relationship, based in collaboration, friendship, and extensive experience with one of the biggest dog shelters in the Community of  Madrid has allowed us to deeply understand the needs and primary issues that can, and usually do, exist when we bring a dog into our lives. We have designed a special treatment program to address these sorts of situations so that you and your new companion don’t have any issue starting off on the right foot. We’ll fill you in and give you advice on any topic or question you may have (health, management, family integration, house rules, etc…). This program is especially recommended if it’s your first dog. We’re here for both you and your dog; get in touch.

A new life

Adoption/adapting to new environment

We are carrying out our mission of creating a world that’s better understands dogs by collaborating with schools. Our goal is to teach children between the ages of 5 and 10 how to relate to dogs from a basis of respect, empathy, and knowledge, in a format that is very didactic and fun for them. We impart basic rules they must know in order to deal with dogs. In doing so, we help create greater awareness about how dogs are, and how one can live alongside them in the best way possible, from a very young age.
