Kiriakos Diakatos, the founder of Athlos Dog Training and Thor og Freya kennel was born in Piraeus in 1981, raised up to an animal-friendly* environment, it didn’t took him long to show interest in dealing with animals professionally.

  The first dog he met when he was a child was a Belgian Shepherd (Groenedael)-Ira, and then followed an East Siberian Laika- Oleg and a German Shepherd-Goliath.

 Although his initial studies related with mechanical engineering, and worked as a production manager in a steel construction company, he left everything to do what he adores and fulfills him.

 He studied alongside Greek teachers with whom he cooperated in a dog  training school – kennel. He has, also, attended seminars for working dogs by leading trainers-teachers in Greece and abroad, but he never stops updating his knowledge about new training methods through seminars, because as he said: “knowledge has no roof”.

 Currently he lives with two amazing dogs, Rea-a white Shepherd and Kox van de Utadreef- a Belgian Shepherd (Malinois).

  He is a Belgian Shepherd (Malinois) and Jack Russel Terrier breeder, a member of the National Association of Dog Trainers of Greece and also of the Belgian Shepherds Club of Greece (Ο.ΒΕ.ΠΕ).
