Who we are?
I help dog handlers to start their dog sport journey so that they can get to their dreamed sport level and enjoy the process with their dog partners.
My dog handler path started back in 2006 when my first dog was born. It was not en easy dog, very stubborn, big and hardly motivated. But he was also my biggest teacher. My beginning was pretty tough with a dog like this, but without him, I wouldn't be where I am today.
My next dogs took me at top sport levels as a rocket because I used what I learned, and they were able to understand, what I wanted them to do. Together we started at several World Obedience Championships and biggest IGP Competitions. I have titled dogs in obedience, tracking, IPO/IGP, conformation and agility.
When I started to lead other dog handlers, the progress and results they have achieved were so fulfilling for me, so I decided to help more handlers on their way. That's how this course idea started!
With every dog I learned something new and now I am giving my methods to you, so you dont have to make training mistakes I did, but have a clean processs, which will help you to your dog sport career.

As we all need help on our journey, I have got one too. This is my right hand, who is helping me to handle and coordinate everything:
I felt love and interest in dogs since childhood, but I got my first dog friend only in 2018. As a new enthusiastic handler, I immediately wanted to try all kinds of dog sports, including Obedience, which literally enchanted me. But as a complete layman and beginner handler, I did a lot of mistakes in the dog, I was constantly spinning in a vicious circle of the same exercises and I did not know how to proceed. Instead of joy, I felt frustrated and doubted if this sport was the right one for us. It was Jana who showed me how easy and effective it is to train and make obedience fun for the dog and me. And that wasn't easy at all! Unfortunately, my dog friend turned out to be a reactive dog who has a really strong problem with concentration and work when there are foreign dogs near him. But even this reality did not stop us, and step by step we went through the individual exercises and moved to the dream goal. So yes - obedience IS POSSIBLE even with a reactive dog! It's not easy, but it's definitely not IMPOSSIBLE.
Another big change came in 2020, when I got my second dog friend, with whom it was clear since he was born, what awaited him in his life - the Obedience path. That's why I went step by step from the very beginning, following the instructions we describe in this course, and it was clear to me, that this was the right way to get in the ring a dog, who would do the exercises fast, precisely and still have fun.
