  • our services

    At Top Dog we stand for animal welfare and we have your dog's best interests at heart.

    We offers dog training with focus on understanding dogs through body language, using purely ethical and positive methods, which is why your paws will always be in good hands.


    There's a new puppy in town

    Are you thinking of getting a dog? Congratulations! Let us help you figure out the first weeks and months with your new family member, how to build a healthy human-dog relationship from the beginning and avoid unwanted behaviour, using responsible and ethical training. There is a lot you need to consider but don't worry, we are here to help.

    "Obedience" training, why and what to teach!

    Did you ever take time to actually teach your dog his name?

    What are the cues you and your dog really should master?

    And how can you teach him/her? We will use only positive and responsible training methods to strengthen the human-dog bond.

    And remember, an old dog CAN learn new tricks!

    Is your walk a real drag?

    Are you walking your dog, or is he walking you? We teach you and your dog 'loose leash walking' and how to make the walk a fun and relaxed activity for both. Ever heard of sniff-walks and natural agility? And imagine, instead of jerking on the lead to use hand signals to show your dog the direction!

    Barking up the wrong tree

    Are you experiencing excessive barking at: bicycles, the mailman, other dogs, umbrellas...? Do you think you know why he feels this way -stressed, anxious, scarred...? Let's have a closer look at it first. Using responsible and positive training methods we will teach you and your 'howler' why he is barking up the wrong tree.

    Dog Walking

    We take your dog out for a 45 minute sniff-walk where he gets to decide the rhythm and the direction. No hurry, no rushing to get to work on time, just letting your dog be a dog. We then return him relaxed and satisfied after having to use his brain to figure out all the messages other dogs left for him...Fun, the relaxed way!

    Dog Sitting

    Need a vacation but don't feel so great about leaving your dog at a kennel? We understand. We will take care of your furry best friend, at your home where he feels save and comfy. Walks, cuddles, playtime and care included. Overnight service possible too!

  • about ME

    What I like most about working as a canine professional is to see the relationship grow between the dogs and their owners, as well as how trust develops and owner and pet become best friends.

    Christine Lang - Owner and Canine Coach

    Imagine a small, idyllic town in Switzerland, with lots of farms and fields where children play in the hay and you can hear the church bells chiming. That is where I grew up. My parents are originally from Vienna, Austria, where we spent all our summers during our childhood. We were a pack of five: my parents, my sister, Taski, and myself. Taski was our Golden Retriever and undoubtedly my first ‘true love’.


    I grew up around dogs, going to puppy courses, organising playtimes and walking some of the dogs in the neighbourhood. I could never imagine my live without dogs, but only after some years of moving around and about I’ve included this passion into my daily life.


    In the past, I called many different places my home, including Mexico, Miami Beach, Norway and Scotland. I enjoy exploring new cultures and learning new languages, only then do I really feel connected to people.


    What I like most about working as a canine professional is to see the relationship grow between the dogs and their owners, as well as how trust develops and owner and pet become best friends. And of course I LOVE the hair and paw prints on all my clothes!
