Welcome at

As a DogGuider, you can contact us for guidance on raising your dogs and tackling disruptive behaviors while aiming at a
stress-free, confident dog.

You will learn to use ethically responsible parenting techniques based on the latest research in brain development and physiology in dogs.

Our vision is simple:

a dog should not be 'under control',
it should be 'brought up


Vision & approach

"Awesome what a stressfree, confident dog can do!"

We provide guidance tailored to your situation, because every family and every dog is different and requires an individual approach.

For all consultations regarding upbringing and rehabilitation, I come to your home to make the best assessment of the situation and circumstances.

Do you have doubts about our approach? No problem. If you change your mind within 45 minutes after the start of the first consultation, you reserve the right to cancel the session free of charge!

Personal approach


You get a dog instructor with a bachelor degree in animal care, who has obtained an international certificate as a dog instructor in addition to other courses.

He's supported by a handful of volunteers and like-minded colleagues worldwide.

Matthias Michiels already has more than

10 years of active professional experience in various facets in the dog industry, with a fresh view and an unique look on things.


He specializes in stress management and interpreting and communicating through body language

Professional approach

  • Facebook
  • Linkedin


We keep hearing from customers how difficult it was to navigate between the abundance of information that you find online and in literature, not to mention the well-intentioned advice you receive from family, friends, co-workers or sometimes even strangers you meet on a walk with your dog.

If this is recognizable, you can click on the button below for an overview of the current situation in the Belgian dog world.
This will guaranteed help you in choosing the right approach, methods and tools for you.


Do you live very far from DogGuidance? Contact us and I will be happy to refer you to a like-minded and professional dog coach in your region or consider a 'virtual session'.

Your choice





We do not practice racial discrimination.

All dogs, big or small (,fat or thin) and their DogGuiders are welcome!

Whether you are already a customer or not, do you have a question? Don't hesitate any longer and contact us without obligation, we are always ready to provide all DogGuiders with advice.


Everybody welcome, always

We have customers from the coast to the Ardennes, but most of them originate in the Leie region. For customers from this region,

the travel costs are free!


DogGuidance is ambitious… We aim to start a dog education- and behavior center, with the aim of making the Leie region the most dog-friendly region in Belgium. By working with us you help us make this dream come true!
