Welcome to HONDERWIJS, centre for pet dogs and their family.
HONDERWIJS is a dog training school for everyone who wants to raise a dog, and do so responsibly. We have different courses for all pups, teens, and adult dogs. Positive reward based training together in a happy relaxed atmosphere. Pleasure and working together with your dog is the foundation of every training.
The courses are based on update knowledge on dog behaviour and training techniques. All trainers are certified dog training instructors and acquired a lot of experience over the years. At HONDERWIJS your dog’s behaviour is a starting point for the lessons rather than the exercises themselves. All exercises are tailored to the dog’s age and learning curve.
In the Agenda you find the starting dates of our training classes and workshops.
We look forward to welcoming you and your dog to our dog training school.
Honderwijs Course program
Enroll your dog by completing the registration form on the website. You instantly receive confirmation. We e-mail the course details approx. two weeks before the course starts. For Puppy class, the Basic-1 and Basic-2 course a link to our online (Dutch) theory lesson will be included, as well as the password for downloading the Puppy Booklet.
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.
Raising a puppy is not always easy. In order to prevent problem behaviour it is important to get the right advice and provide the correct training to give guidance to your dog. We have time for a short question on behaviour right after each lesson. For more advice we refer you to Janette and Sonja, both certified Behavioral Counselors for Dogs. Make an appointment HERE.

Janette and Sonja are also certified Behavioral Counselors for Dogs, member of the Association of Behavioral Counsellors for Dogs NVGH, and accredited by Stichting Certipet.
