I’m a professional dog trainer and an expert in behaviour adaption. When I decided to end my carrier in engineering to dedicate myself full-time to dogs, I pursued a university-level instruction by first doing a master in dog training and then a master in Ethology of pets.
I used to travel in the whole world as Do as I Do instructor and certificatory, in collaboration with Claudia Fugazza, researcher at the university of Budapest, helping her also in some practical parts of her scientific studies. In Italy I’m technical director of the Istruzione Cinofila association, where I mainly educate and re-educate dogs, and work with dogs in water. In 2004 I stopped doing competitions to dedicate myself to the behaviour and management aspects of living with a dog.
I’m an adjunct professor for the master in Dog Training at the University of Padova.
