Dog trainers & behaviorists


Dima is a dog training instructor with over 32 years experience. He grew up in the former Soviet Union which is where he first learnt to train dogs.

At university he studied the physiology of behaviour and acquired a teaching diploma before moving to the UK in 1996.

He runs the Good Boy Dog School in North London providing individual and group training classes for dog owners as well as socialisation, rehabilitation, specialist and problem-solving classes and a summer training camp.

Both he and many of the dogs he’s trained have appeared on TV and in film – most recently That Dog Can Dance and with celebrity gardener and author Alan Titchmarsh, and he regularly participates at some of the UK’s largest dog shows educating and entertaining the crowds with his training displays.

Dima has also worked with the police as well as various dog rescue organisations. He has trained many other dog trainers who have since established their own dog related businesses in the UK and elsewhere in Europe.
