the philosophy of dog training

the philosophy of dog training

Since I was very young, I was picturing myself talking to animals. Tarzan and Mowgli were my favorite characters. Growing up, I always enjoyed the company of one ore more animals like goldfish, cats, dogs, chickens, geese, parrots, donkeys etc… When I was a teenager, I started reading books about dog training and dog psychology and I contacted professional dog trainers. As the years were passing by, my thirst about the animal world an especially the dog world, grew bigger.

I took seminars and courses about dog training and psychology in Athens, Ioannina, Thessaloniki and the Netherlands. At the same time I started helping dozens of dogs along with their owners and began working in a program for rehabilitating mentally ill people, so they can find a job. Working with psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers, I started forming a totally different way of approach. My goal was Communication, Association, Respect and Love.

Suddenly I realized that I was helping people, the same way I was helping animals. I was creating communication channels, I was making relationships stronger, I was sharpening abilities, virtues and characters, I was gaining trust. I had found a way to help people and animals around me. Anyone who wanted to, I was there to help become a better version of themselves. At the same time, they were helping me, become a better version of myself!

Nobody is perfect! However, every moment is an opportunity for everyone to be a better person. So, without realizing, “Mila sto skilo sou1” ‘s Philosophy was born! “C.A.R.L. 2” system, “Step-by-step” method and “Act” were in the making!

The idea was simple:

  • Get properly informed (teacher and student)
  • Understand completely (teacher and student)
  • Decide, knowing the consequences (teacher and student)

What we rely on

At “Mila sto Skilo sou” we have a variety of courses and approach techniques. Everything is based in scientific principals, nature and dogs’ and humans’ instincts and psychology. Common sense, “Act” and “Step by step” are our best “allies”. “Always there for you” guaranty is our trademark. Our goal is to improve dogs’ and their owners’ quality of life and we make this happen “Step by step”.

Step 1: We create a common language
Step 2: Through Communication, we increase the dog’s, but also the owner’s, self-confidence, virtues and skills. That leads to mutual respect between them.
Step 3: We teach to owners and dogs, a different approach of every situation. Dogs acknowledge everything their family provides for them and owners understand what their dog offers and does for them.

In a “magic” way we travel from Communication to Association, to Respect and finally land on Love (C.A.R.L.)

What we stand out for 

  • We don’t just deliver knowledge… we inspire!
  • We are not trying to dominate… we try to help!
  • We don’t subjugate… we coexist!
  • We don’t force… we guide!

We live in a world of humans and animals. Our purpose is to harmonically coexist and, day by day, to “transform” into a better version of ourselves. Our weapons? “C.A.R.L”, “Step by step”, “Act” and “Always there for you”. With knowledge, experience, scientific learning and endless love and passion for what we do.
