High Risk Dogs seminar (26 October, 7.15pm, 55 euros): (in Dutch) An objective look at the High Risk Dog file. What are the behaviour risks from a scientific perspective (no fear mongering or trivialising)? As a HRD owner, how will you be affected by the law? Is your small dog really in danger? How can you make sure your HRD dog does not get in trouble?

OhMyDog! is looking for new colleagues: OhMyDog! is looking for new trainers and behaviour coaches. We are looking for 3 different profiles: the Nerd (academic background in behaviour and/or animals), the Field guy (works with dogs all day long), and/or the Pro (certified trainer). Are you excited about the evidence-based concept? Do you want to advise on dog behaviour based on sound scientific principles, rather than hearsay or personal opinion? Are you free to come to The Hague every Wednesday night? Then you will fit right in with our team of dog nerds. More information here.
Group lessons are given on Wednesday nights from our dedicated dog training field in Kijkduin (Den Haag). For more pricing, please consult our Class schedule page. Note: Seminars can be given on non-Wednesdays.

Right now, we offer the following lessons, but keep checking regularly for more offerings:
Our goal is simple: Happy, polite family dogs who are well-adjusted to living in society; parlour tricks and blind obedience are not the priority of our lessons.
For whom: For dog owners in The Hague and region (Leidschendam-Voorburg, Rijswijk, Wassenaar, Scheveningen, etc.) who want a happy, well-behaved family dog.
What: We teach skills that are relevant for the real life of a family dog, not dry obedience. Our highly educated dog trainers advise you following evidence-based principles: modern techniques and scientific research.
Where: We give our dog training lessons in a secure, dedicated training field in the heart of The Hague’s green belt (Kijkduin). Opposite Golf Club Ockenburgh, near the International School.
When: We give all our lessons on Wednesday evenings.
How: Our friendly trainers and the small class sizes result in a relaxed, playful atmosphere. And, needless to say, we never use pain or intimidation.
For our expat friends, we offer separate classes given exclusively in English.
We give our classes at De Clan (12 Wijndaelerweg, Den Haag), our enclosed training field on the green edges of the Ockenburgh Park (opposite the Golf Club). The location is safe, clean, fenced off, and easily accessible by car. For directions, go to our Location page.
You can always mail us on info@OhMyDogSchool.com. We will do our best to respond within two business days.
OhMyDog! is run by your friendly dog nerds, Laure-Anne Visele-Jonkman and Sabine Peters.
Your classes are given by experienced and certified professionals, preferably with specialist academic credentials. Why are we so picky? Because at OhMyDog!, we only leave your dog in the hands of qualified dog trainers.

Not every dog was born for group training and some problems go beyond obedience. Our applied behaviourists can help with deeper-rooted problems like aggression, fear, or separation-related problems. If you think your dog might benefit from behaviour advice, select ‘behaviour advice or private training’ in the sign-up form and we’ll guide you through the process.
