Hey, I ‘m Sonja    

As a mentor and expert in dog behavior, I help empathetic dog owners understand their furry friend better.

I show them ways out of stress, so they can get back into a happy and fulfilling relationship with each other.

What if

you could understand what your faithful companion is trying to tell you with her/his behavior?

And what if

you could find a mindful way to help her/him?

Without bending her/him.

Without forcing commands.

Without manipulations.

Start your journey together to:

improved communication!

more mutual trust!

a deeper bond!

and more relaxation and joy in everyday life!

We live in Hamburg, the most dog-friendly city in Germany. So it was no surprise that we started thinking more and more about getting our own dog. 

When the decision was made, we didn't know how and where we could find a suitable dog and what we had to consider when choosing one. As a person not knowing much about dogs, you are often guided by the appearance of the dog. When I turned to Sonja, I felt much more confident. Her individual and attentive approach and her great knowledge of dogs were a very valuable support. Thanks to her, we have found our absolute dream dog and can highly recommend her!

We have had the problem for a while that our dog would not let us take her on the leash to go for a walk. She always ran away and hid under the table or our couch and sometimes even growled at us. She barked like crazy at dog encounters and passing motorbikes or cars and it got worse and worse. Then we turned to Sonja. What was special about her counselling was, that she not only paid attention to my dog, but also to me. I learned to self-reflect and become calmer in the challenging situations, which immediately transferred to my dog and provided her security. Thanks to the helpful training instructions, we are both now much more relaxed and confident. I have learned how to read my dog and offer her safety in uncomfortable situations. A heartfelt recommendation for everyone who wants to have more relaxation and joy with their dog again.
