muzo

A science based approach to dog training

Camille created her dog training school muzo with the idea of dedicating her life to understanding dogs and their behavior. With many years of experience and continuing education, she keeps up to date of the latest advances in behavioral science and techniques. Muzo’s only concern are always and only the dog needs: making choices, taking decisions, communicating and exchanging.

 
 

Positive reinforcement

We work with methods based on positive reinforcement. We use tools such as clicker, food, play, etc. But beyond the techniques used, we make it a point of honor that dogs and humans feel respected, understood and at ease emotionally and physically.

Empowerment

At Muzo, the empowerment of dogs and the human is a fundamental value. For us, it is absolutely essential that dogs and humans remain actors in their learning and integrate information in the most appropriate manner and pace for them. Education should not be a painful process but instead a choice and decision of the learner, whether he is walking on two legs or four.

Expertise

Muzo’s expertise is recognized internationally. Camille works weekly with regular dog owners but also travel in France, Belgium and Switzerland to teach clicker training, fitness and treiball courses to professional dog trainers. She also learns with the best behavior specialists and trainers from all over the world such as Dr Susan Friedman, Kay Laurence, Chirag Patel, Sam Turner, Lori Stevens, Debbie Gross Torraca, etc.
