As an APDT member I'm expected to continue my training during my whole career to acquire further knowledge about dog training and behaviour. For this reason I continue to study and follow practical and theoretical courses to try to always find the best methods to teach our dogs and to enable their owners to better understand and communicate with their four legged companion. I only use kind, fair and effective methods.

To better explain my philosophy about dog training allow me to borrow the words of Roger Abrantes Ph.D. Behaviourist and Professor of Evolutionary Biology and Ethology at the Ethology Institute in Hong , Denmark :

"We, the modern knowledgeable of all knowledgeable humans, as we care to name ourselves, are no more than an immeasurable brief eye blink in the course of evolution, immensely less than the commonest of all bacteria. Yet, we have never been able to contemplate anything without, in our incommensurable arrogance and painstaking stupidity, changing it - not for the sake of insight, knowledge, or wisdom, nor because of it, but in the name of meagre superstitious and unfounded beliefs.

This modern knowledgeable of all knowledgeable humans have made a life of living - and dying - in antagonism, resenting all and the lot. Yet, evolution shows unequivocally that the secret of a prolonged survival through centuries and millennia lies not in living against, but in living with. Inexorably accepting, understanding and respecting other living beings, independently of species and race - and herein lays the magical formula."
Roger Abrantes Ph. D.

I'm fluent in English and French in addition to Spanish my mother tongue.

“SUCCESS OF ANY TRAINING METHOD IS NOT IN THE METHOD ITSELF, BUT IN THE APPLICATION, WHICH IS HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON THE DEPTH OF UNDERSTANDING OF THE TWO SPECIES INVOLVED.”

Kay Laurence

 

“Behavioural control, however, is the principal goal of standard training. Communicating with the animal is the means to this end.”

Kathy Sdao
