Company Introduction & Overview

Welcome to WHYZDOG ("wise dog")

There is no such thing as a naughty dog. Peter-John Stols is the dog behaviourist and principal trainer at the school. He is assisted by Jonathan and Kevin, his sons.

WHYZDOG Dog Behaviour Counselling & Training has developed over a 30-year journey. The journey started in Midrand because of Great Dane / Bull Mastiff puppy Trojan, who dug a massive hole in a newly planted lawn. Trojan’s “earthmoving” antics initiated a journey that became a dedicated hobby and ultimately developed into considerably more. Peter-John and Susan started training Trojan and Jesse (our GSD) respectively, progressing from basic obedience all the way through to advanced protection. Something done with most of the subsequent family dogs.

At WhyzDog, we do not do attack training. That is, training where the dogs are taught to be aggressive and prone to bite with very little provocation and little or no threat discernment/recognition. (See blog to follow soon for more in this regard.)
