As a foreigner, it can be challenging to find someone who is not only knowledgeable about dog training but also has the communication skills to explain things in a way that I can understand. Fortunately, I found Petra, and she’s helped me with my 2 y.o.rescued dog.


I am incredibly grateful for her role in helping me better understand my dog and take good care of him. Her ability to explain things clearly and concisely has been invaluable in helping me to build trusting relationships with my dog.


I would highly recommend Petra to anyone who is looking for someone who is not only an expert in their field but also a pleasure to work with. Thank you for all you have done for my furry friend and me!


- Maryna & rescue dog Pickels - 


animal trainer from Helsinki.

Training dogs has been my full-time

occupation since 2012.

I have experience in all breeds recognized by the FCI. I have also worked with numerous mixed-breed and rescue dogs. I specialize in training city living and active, energetic dogs. My own dogs are also of various different breeds. Besides dogs I'm also able to give instructions for training cats.



is always to prioritize the well-being of the animal and to give the owner confidence on how to act more interactively with their pet! I train based on operant conditioning and positive reinforcing. I don't accept any unethical methods in attemp to modify animal behavior.
