My interest in the study of dog behaviors originated 19 years ago as a result of the need to manage and limit the excesses of Baki, a beautiful wolf that I had brought home from the municipal kennel in Milan. In those days I was studying psychology and pedagogy which, combined with the lessons the wolf gave me daily and an interesting training course for dog trainers, were the first approaches to the topic.

The educational technique was then refined thanks to Artù, a bright Border Collie puppy. Training him and myself to the discipline of driving flocks, sheep-dog, allowed me to observe and develop useful learning dynamics.

Artù has been able to give me infinite satisfactions in the professional field and not only in that, he played an important role at my side as an indispensable assistant in managing my little flock of goats and in the practical demonstration of the concepts that I expose during the educational courses.
Over the years the formula through which I offered my service has been enriched by many experiences, including a Master's Degree in Indovedic Psychology, a psychological science of ancient India, a discipline that more than any others previously studied in depth gives the tools to make an investigation into Reality as much complete as possible.

It was interesting to see how this knowledge applied to my profession has helped me and those who participate to my courses to get rid of false identifications and to find their role and responsibly play it.

Choosing to have a dog is to open the door to a great opportunity.
While educating the dog we will actually have to deal with ourselves. The pedagogical practices we will use will be able to reveal the characteristics of our personality that we had not considered and that will be corrected.
If we will be able to invest well on this experience we could find a way to invest the outcomes far beyond the relationship between a man and a dog.
In a society where more and more prevails individualism and personal gratification rediscovering the values of responsibility and accountability, and learn how to spend them in relationships can have an unimaginable eco and significantly improve the quality of our lives.
