Randy van de Wijngaard - My Story
Hello. I am Randy van de Wijngaard and I have been in the police dog business and the KNPV (De Koninklijke Landelijke Politiehonden Vereniging) since 2007. I have titled 2 dogs in PH1 (429 and 434 points) and 1 in object guard 406 points (full score).
Highly Competitive Dog Trainer
I must admit I am a highly competitive dog trainer. I have attended multiple competitions with all of these dogs. Again and again at the highest level possible. In 2016 I took my dog Millow to the KNPV National Championship and did really well.
From Dog Handler to Dog Seller
My career as a dog trainer started in the KNPV but I soon realized I wanted to turn it into a full-time job. After 4 years of education I graduated as 'Manager Animal Caretaker'. At the same time I became a certified 'Dog Training Instructor' and learnt how to train pets. I then worked for a K9 Dog Training Centre in the neighbourhood and learnt how to select and sell K9 Dogs.
Both Green Dogs and Trained Dogs
I really learnt a lot at the K9 Dog Training Centre and after some years I decided to start my own company. I am an experienced trainer of green dogs now. I train mostly Explosive Detection Dogs (EDD) and Narcotic Detection Dogs (NDD). At the same time I prepare green patrol dogs and set them up so they are 'ready for the street'.
Thousands of Dogs who are ready for their job
In the last 10 years I’ve trained thousands of green dogs that now work everywhere in the world. I am now highly experienced and have a huge knowledge on the topic. From taking care of dogs, dog training and dog behaviour. I know what dog matches the needs of the clients and I know how to keep them satisfied.
