My name is Magdalena Zajac and I’m the founder and the owner of DogDirect London.
I have Master degree in Pedagogy but I’m not working as a teacher. In 2005 I started to
learn all about dog behaviour, training and animal welfare. Now I’m a qualified Dog
Behaviourist and Dog Trainer with a COAPE Diploma (Association of Dog Behaviourist
and Trainers), a qualified therapy dog master and the owner of a therapy dog and a Rally –
O judge.

For a few years I was training shelter dogs from Katowice Dog Shelter and SOS for
Animals Foundation volunteers. I organised national social program for shelter dogs and
volunteers from Poland.

I was also a partner in a “Dog – meet, hug, love” Resocialization Project organised in a
Penitentiary in Wojkowice Slaskie in Poland for those who committed acts of cruelty
against animals. I ran lectures and practical training with dogs and prisoners.

Besides that I’m the author of an educational program “A man and a dog – a special bond”
based on lectures, workshops and demonstrations of working dogs for children as well as
adults. This program was being run in cooperation with and at the Cinema City in Katowice
and the Silesian Zoo in Chorzow (Poland).

In Poland I ran my own dog training center which offered individual and group workshops
and courses of basic and advanced obedience, animal behaviour therapy and individual
consultancy for dog owners. My training center also offered lectures, workshops, and
seminars ran by specialists, grooming and dog daycare.

In 2013 I relocated to the City of London and still ran my individual courses of basic and
advanced obedience and consultancy for dog owners, I took dogs for walks and took care
of them when owners were not able to do this. I also started producing and selling high
quality, hand made, professional products for dogs which can be useful in everyday life
with dogs and in training.

Currently as the owner of trade mark DogDirect London, I’m traveling around Europe and
I’m still improving my qualifications by taking part in courses, workshops and seminars.

My professionalism sits with a true passion,
commitment and engagement in work with the dogs and their owners.
