Welcome to HONDERWIJS, centre for pet dogs and families.
At our dog training school, you will find courses for raising and training your dog. HONDERWIJS provides a happy relaxed atmosphere for you and your dog to learn positive reward based training together. To give your puppy the best start in life it is essential that you teach him or her to be well behaved, have good manners and be friendly to people and other dogs.
In the Agenda you will find the starting dates of our training classes and workshops.
Information on our training classes, private training, workshops you can find under ‘English’ at the top of the page. Our training location is in Wassenaar-Kerkehout. Classes can be given in English when needed, usually in a group combined with Dutch dog owners.
You can register your dog by completing the registration form on the website. Once the course fee is paid we will send you confirmation of joining the class. Final grouping will be done approx. 2 weeks before the course starts. You will receive an e-mail with all the course details.
We kindly ask you to transfer the fee into our bank account number NL88 KNAB 0255 3935 98 (BIC code KNABNL2H) stating the name of the dog.
We look forward to welcoming you and your dog to our dog training school.
The main goal of HONDERWIJS is to develop a good relationship between you, the owner and your dog, based on mutual respect and understanding. We use positive reinforcement techniques which are important to help build a strong bond between you and your dog or puppy.
