Hondenschool Valkenburg


English taught dog training classes

The only Dog School in Limburg that provides group and private dog training lessons in the English language.

International Dog School Valkenburg

Welcome in the Netherlands and welcome to Huisdierverhalen ♥

Once you and your dog(s) settled in we’d like to welcome you to join our small-scale dog training school! We offer both group and private classes named Obedience & FUN! classes and use dog-friendly, play-based training methods which are suitable for all dogbreeds from the age of 12 weeks old! Our group classes mix all ages and provide age and breed appropriate training options because we believe that the youngsters and adolescents can learn an aweful lot in social skills from the adult and senior dogs (when properly monitored of course!).

Our dog training class is entirely taught in English. Even our complementary Whatsapp group is English only because we know that us Dutchies can have a hard time sticking to the English language when we’re among other Dutchies… Huisdierverhalen wants to include all international dog owners and provide an inclusive and fabulous dog-loving setting!

In the class we practice various useful (and unuseful but fun!) obedience commands in different levels, you’ll engage in exciting exercises and we incorporate elements from all kinds of dog sports such as agility, flyball, scent work, treiball, hoopers and even swim & dive training in our doggo swimmingpool!

This type of training is an innovative training program designed for dog schools to make your dog’s learning process stress-free and incredibly fun!  And of course are the interactive games based on scientific research.
