About Tom

Hi there, I'm Tom. I'm 30, Italian living in the Netherlands for several years. I was raised by a cat-crazy mother and once I turned 20 I started studying dog behavior and since then I started working for different schools and shelters as a dog trainer.

Here are some of the specializations that I achieved : basic training, hormonal development in adolescent dogs, origin of aggression, nose work, agility, domestic animal welfare, neurology, behavioral adjustment training. I've been teaching a puppy class for the renowned Oh My Dog school in den haag and I've been walking large groups at the animal nanny pet care services. My dog teddy is a pug mix, male, 7. My hobbies are painting and skateboarding.

When it comes to pets, for me the keyword is safety first. Choosing a good environment, the right moment, and reading carefully the body language. I have been working in shelters in Italy delivering behavioral therapy protocols for street dogs and I am aware that risk management is a huge component in our field, because it allows me to have a relaxed stroll in the park and your dog can enjoy their permanence with me, and you can leave without worrying.

I cannot accept : puppies that are not house trained, females on heat, male dogs that are not castrated, dogs who tend to bark a lot, and dogs that have problems with stairs and are heavier than 10kg (I live on the fourth floor without elevator, small guests are easily carried in my arms if needed).

Your pet will be walked 4 times per day (3 short walks of 20min circa and 1 long walk of 1.30 hours). When I accept furry clients, they become my full time job. They will not be left alone for more than 3 hours and just for making groceries. When unsupervised the dogs will Stay in a big bench with comfy blankets and a snack. The rest of the time they can choose between the couch, the bed, or the carpet. I love cuddling and I'm not picky. My apartment is situated in a condo in Groningen next to the Martini hospital and with plenty of green areas at walking distance.
