What you'll do

Join me and my canine friends as we discover the forests and lakes of the Grunewald. I am a professional dog-walker and I invite you explore this beautiful part of Berlin with my pack, a group of 15 dogs - big and small, confident and sensitive. As we walk, we can observe how dogs communicate - working, playing, quarrelling and making friends.
Dogs are pack animals and you need to be top dog for them to follow your commands. I’ll teach you how to get them to listen to you in a way they understand. I believe there are better ways than shouting to get what you want. You may find these tips apply to people too! You can try out my tips with the dogs and I’ll give you feedback.
Perfect for all dog and nature lovers - let’s stroll, jump and sniff - and finish off with a splash in the lake!

It was a lot of fun to get to know the different dogs and their personalities and I really enjoyed to see them splash around in the lake. Einstein, Bo, Nora, Pluto, Fluffy, etc. they were all a lovely bunch. Thomas showed me a few training tips that I could try with my own dog. I had the chance to play a few training games with the dogs.

Absolutely amazing experience. Thomas is very professional and knowledgeable in dogs. The sight in the woods was also incredibly charming. All the dogs were friendly and have unique characteristics. Tom was our favourite. He was just so cool. Definitely would recommend the experience to dog lovers!

This was the second time I have participated in this experience and it was wonderful. My kids aged 11 and 14 really enjoyed it. Thomas has the ability to deal with all age groups really well and I appreciate that. This is a brilliant activity for families (or anyone really!)

A really wonderful experience. I went with my daughter, neither of us are really dog experts and this was so interesting. A little world of its own and Thomas really brought it home. He's completely in his pack and made us part for a few hours. It was a truly exceptional experience. Thanks again!

Es ist ein tolles Treffen gewesen. Thomas ist perfekt in seinem Bereich. Ich fühlte mich sehr gut aufgehoben, er kümmerte sich toll ab Beginn der Buchung um einen. Es wurden mir Dinge über Hunde gezeigt, die ich vorher nicht gewusst hätte. Ein grosses Dankeschön dafür!
