Suzan van Cleef is a dog coach and one of the most interesting aspects about dogs to her, is the way they communicate. Dogs speak their own language, but in a completely different way. She became passionate about teaching people this language and how to work with their dog in a natural way. She realised that’s the key to a healthy relationship. Truly understanding dogs will gain their trust, willingness and out of their free will they will do anything for you. Her dog Jab (Dutch Shepherd x Belgian Malinois) and she communicate in a way that he “rewards her when she got it right and helps her when she got it wrong” (like Jan Fennell describes it). She learned a lot from her dog because he reflects her behaviour. In her training programs she shares this knowledge in an easy and understandable way.
At the shelter I came in touch with a Dog Training Centre in the south of Holland. I developed my passion for coaching and teaching people to understand their dogs better and to communicate in a more efficient way with each other. I did everything from raising, training and socializing a puppy to considerably more complicated behavioral issues.
So, what’s the secret to a well-behaved dog?
