Who is Izzy

My name is Izzy… dog trainer & dog walker.

I am first of all a dog owner like you. Goldy, my dog, is a female Weimaraner and I couldn’t imagine my family without her. Yes, she is a member of the family and she needs/deserves love, care and respect like we all do.

What you give to your dog, you are going to receive back 200% and even more!

I grew up with dogs, but having my own dog opened my eyes about the way we as humans have been misunderstanding dog language for a long time. Fortunately, nowadays we know more about how dogs feel, behave and react and we finally understand that we need to learn their language to be able to train them properly. Treat them with respect, love, care and freedom!

A happy dog is a happy owner!

As a positive dog trainer, my goal is helping dog owners to live happily with their dog and to build a strong relationship based on trust and respect. I am delighted to assist all dog owners, and especially new puppy owners, in creating the best possible bond with their beloved pet!

I used to be a chef for 20 years, but my passion for dogs led me to learn more about them and follow different courses of positive dog training:
