A wonderful time

Your dog is now in adolescence, and you are participating in the final course at our dog school. During this period, undesirable behaviors may occur, such as jumping on people, responding less reliably to commands that were previously well-executed, barking at dogs or other animals during walks, or excessive pulling on the leash. Together, we will ensure that your dog becomes well-behaved once again.


This course consists of 6 lessons, including one theory session, and costs €135. The course takes place on Sunday mornings and is designed for dogs aged 6 months to approximately 18 months. Additionally, all courses and private lessons can be conducted in English!

Course content

The content of the course includes, in addition to the commands leave it, sit, come here, shake hands, lie down, stay, and turn:

  • Theory Session: Understanding the adolescent stage in dogs, addressing common behavioral issues, and strategies for managing them effectively.
  • Refinement of Basic Commands: Reinforcing previously learned commands such as sit, stay, come, and heel, with a focus on reliability and responsiveness, even in distracting environments.
  • Impulse Control: Teaching techniques to manage and reduce impulsive behaviors such as jumping, barking, and pulling on the leash.
  • Socialization and Confidence Building: Providing opportunities for positive interactions with other dogs and people to improve social skills and confidence.
  • Problem-solving: Addressing specific behavioral challenges encountered by participants and providing tailored solutions.
  • Graduation and Next Steps: Reviewing progress, celebrating achievements, and discussing further training options or advanced courses.


The lessons are conducted at Buitenplaats Vaeshartelt: a beautiful, tranquil location in Maastricht. There are ample parking spaces directly adjacent to the training field. Vaeshartelt also offers the opportunity to enjoy food and drinks where you and your dog are warmly welcomed.
