Edita has over 30 years experience with training dogs, particularly more challenging dogs and bigger breeds like German- and Belgian- Shepherds, Boxers and Terriers.

With her first Boxer Cezar Edita has acquired Czech Kenel Club qualification in obedience, tracking and protection.  Edita's greatest ambition is to educate local residents on responsible dog ownership and to demonstrate how even the most basic positive obedience training can drastically improve your dog's overall behaviour and strengthen and tranform the relationship  between owner and dog. 

Her favourite breeds are: Boxers, German Shepherds and lately she's been crushing on Bull dogs.
