About me

Viktoria Matt from Flirsch am Arlberg.
Me and my qualifications..

My Name is Vici (Viktoria Matt) and I’m from Flirsch in Tirol. As is typical for this area, I am very open-minded. Following my graduation from a secondary school for economic professions (five years including general qualification for university entrance) and after working in several companies, I have now turned my hobby into a profession.

My male Australian Shepherd Snow has taught me a lot about motivation, composure and communication. For me it is essential to treat dogs fairly, respectfully and positively, so that every dog feels comfortable and I can cater to the strengths of every one of them. They will be treated as if they were my own. The individual groups consist of no more than 4 mutually compatible conspecifics, and each dog will get the time and attention he or she needs. I love nature and am outside regardless of the weather conditions. I enjoy walking with the dogs and encouraging them. Composure and calmness in critical situations as well as reliability are very important to me.

I work exclusively via positive reinforcement, which means that your four-legged friend will not be subject to startle stimuli, rattling, jerking on the leash, water bottles, or other aversive stimuli.

Naturally, I constantly undergo further training to stay on top of learning theory. This is the only way to ensure professional care.
