ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Our school was founded to contribute to mutual understanding between humans and dogs. Our students learn to understand dogs, their needs, signals and body language. We teach how to explain anything to a dog, how to build communication, how to prevent or correct an unwanted behaviour discovering the root cause of a problem. We do train all basic commands and tricks, though its not the ultimate goal but only a tool for better communication with your dog.
ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

Our school was founded to contribute to mutual understanding between humans and dogs. Our students learn to understand dogs, their needs, signals and body language. We teach how to explain anything to a dog, how to build communication, how to prevent or correct an unwanted behaviour discovering the root cause of a problem. We do train all basic commands and tricks, though its not the ultimate goal but only a tool for better communication with your dog.
MORE ABOUT SCHOOL

We use only modern, no-fear, no-pain methods of dog training. Students are not allowed to use any traumatizing equipment (no prong-collars, no choke-chains, no electric-collars). We reeeeeeally love dogs and we base our training on behavioral science, so no one is allowed to scare dogs, beat them or yell at them. You can attend trainings with your whole family, everyone is welcome.

 

Our school welcomes any dogs - big, small, very small, very big. We have puppy classes and classes for experienced dogs. Dogs with dog-to-dog aggression are not allowed to enter the group immediately, but individual trainings for those dogs will be very helpful.

WHY CURIOUS MOOSE

SCIENCE-BASED TRAINING
The no-fear and no-pain methods used at our school are based on modern animal behavior science. We do not use physical force and traumatic equipment, respecting the needs of each animal.
DOG FRIENDLY VENUE
Group trainings take place at specially equipped and fenced dog training venue where dogs can learn and play in a safe and friendly environment.
QUALIFIED SPECIALISTS
Our trainers are highly qualified and never stop learning, attending seminars and conferences, exchanging experience with colleagues around the world.
INDIVIDUAL APPROACH
There are no bad dogs. Every animal has its own needs and requires individual approach. There are no problems to be ashamed of. In every case there is a chance to help and raise the quality of life.
SUPPORT & MAINTENANCE
We do not leave you alone after the consultation and provide at least two-week support in the "question-answer" format in WhatsApp to ensure the progress.
FREE ZONE
We do not segregate people on any basis, and we provide our service and help to anyone who requires it. You can sign up for consultation whether or not you have a vaccination certificate.
ONLINE WEBINAR
"ADOPTED DOG: WHAT TO EXPECT"

TRAININGS & CONSULTATIONS
Depending on the request we choose the format of a consultation or a training. Most behavioral problems (aggression, fears, excessive barking, anxiety, etc.) require individual consultations (online or home visit). After that you can continue to work in a group. If you are an experienced dog owner and you look for a right place to train your dog in the presence of other dogs and people, you can sign up for group classes right away.
