I am the author and creator of Thecollienois.com – I am Italian – and a happy father of two gorgeous dogs!
After struggling while bringing up my two pups when I couldn’t find any trustworthy resource online, I felt a dire need to create one.
I studied A LOT about dogs, and now I enjoy sharing my knowledge, dog training techniques, and tips that work.
As I am passionate about dogs and love writing, Thecollienois.com becomes my happy place to hang out.
On Thecollienois, I translate my mission of helping canine parents into positive actions.
When I am not writing, I entertain myself with traveling, exploring different adventures and cultures with the several languages I speak, and sharing my journey with photography.

History of The Collienois
When I started Thecollienois.com in 2018, I had no idea how incredible a resource it would be for dog owners . Newbies and Seasoned alike!
But what’s the REAL inspiration behind thecollinois.com?
I have a good experience to share. ☺
The love of dogs sprouted in my heart back in my teenage years. When a two-month-old puppy crept into my apartment – from God knows where.
It touched my heart with its cuteness.
The first night, I gave him a towel to sleep in as I didn’t know what else I could use for this purpose.
And guess what..?
He destroyed the towel with his sharp teeth.
After that… began the real destruction!
He’d nibble on everything he would find – electric wires, bills, magazines, and whatnot.
That time I knew nothing about feeding him or handling him.
But I was happy and enjoying his company.
He stayed with me for two months. That was a super happy time for me. Indeed!
One day, when I accidentally left the main door open, he managed to get out and NEVER came back. ☹
I was saddened. After all, he was the cutest trouble I ever had.
But life goes on…
After some time I got busy with life, but his memories were still ALWAYS with me.
The doggie love sparked once again when I saw Buddy.
It was love at first sight (He still is a professional heart stealer). I instantly decided to adopt him.
Again, the problem was, I lacked the required knowledge. Heck!!!
The results? My doggie was often sick, and I struggled to manage my time.
Soon, the high vet bills wracked my nerves.
So, instead of making a retreat, I decided to be a responsible dog person and ended up studying dog behaviors and dog problems with my head and heart.
When I adopted Selma in 2018, I was a more mature and experienced dog father and had lesser problems raising her.
That happy dog life was the time when I felt the need to create a one-stop online resource and my place to document the life journey of my fur babies. Buddy, a 4-year male Border Collie, and Selma, a 2.5 year Belgian Malinois female
Then, I came up with Thecollienois.com.
The name of my site – Thecollienois.com – is also inspired by their unique breeds.
Isn’t that crazy, how a little trouble (my very first puppy) became a starting path to bringing two other doggies home and eventually led me to blog about them?
That really is.
But I find so much joy and peace in sharing my insights, happy tales, and sad ones with others.
Today, when Thecollienois.com completes its three-year journey, I feel so proud and humbled, at the same time, for helping many canine parents across the globe.
Since 2018 the mission of TheCollienois has been to help YOU with your dog-related issues and live a calmer life with your fur-besties.
