I’m A Dog Behaviour Therapist And I Draw Comic Strips About Dogs
I have been crazy about dogs since the day I first saw one and I like to draw since the day I can hold a pencil.
About 17 years ago I became an instructor in a dog school and a few years later, after obtaining the required diplomas, I upgraded myself to Dog Behavior Therapist.
Over the years I’ve seen hundreds of dogs with all kinds of behavior(al problems), in the dog schools where I worked and at their homes.
Nowadays I don’t teach anymore but still help an occasional problem dog with the behaviors of its people. ;-)
Thanks to this job and our own 3 Belgian Shepherds I learned to look at life through dogs eyes more and more. This opened a whole new world and because of the numerous typical and funny situations I wanted to make a comic strip about it for a long time, but… never had the time to do it.
Today, I still don’t have the time but I decided to ignore that small negligible detail and go for it anyway.
My comic strip Dogs Don’t Whisper (they really don’t, Mr. C.M.) features different dogs every week. Sometimes it’s pure fantasy, sometimes it’s close to reality and in a few cases it’s literally what happened in real life.
My goal is to make people smile and let them learn a little bit about that dogs point of view along the way.
I hope you enjoy it!

1: I lost count of the times I saw this IRL.
2: Dogs Don’t Valentine! (And are usually not so fond of the vet)
3: A typical proposal. This is how Jack Russels really think! (Jack Russell owners can confirm this)
4: People jobs and animal jobs.
5: I know everything about you!
6: When your dog doesn’t know he makes the holes himself but thinks he discovers them! My own yard once looked like this when my 2nd pup “discovered” underground holes.
7: Horses are scared easily and hungry rottweilers can be very scary.
8: Sadly, this actually happens a lot, bad training which results in dogs who only understand physical forcing instead of words.
9: Dog applies Pavlov. One of our dogs did this exact thing for real (preferably with parties) and we fell for it many times.
10: Throw in some tiles.
11: Easter egg hunting. Based on real stories of real vets.
12: Brain size. If people were more like dogs the world would be a so much better place.
13: What’s with all that howling at the moon actually?
14: The alternative to howling at the moon.
15: Again a true story. I’ve seen this hilarious scene quite often IRL! Usually these people have a red head and ears where steam comes out.
16: This one happened for real. When our first pup met our cat for the first time!
17: Cats… they just can’t help themselves when it comes down to their hunting instincts.
18: Found you!
19: Man’s best friend (provided that man is friendly to animals).
20: They usually don’t see themselves as they are seen by people.
