Arvedson Consulting

Automotive Consulting & Dog Owner Training


As far apart as «Automotive Distribution Consulting» may appear to be from «Coaching Of Dog Owners With Dogs Showing Serious Problematic Behaviour», there is a common denominator.

The success of both are closely linked to people, to their readiness to accept change and ability to adjust their thinking and doing.

Developing a thorough understanding of the current situation, defining precise objectives, formulating the strategy, putting the implementation plan in place and using clearly defined milestones to ensure the objectives are reached, apply to both areas.

Automotive consulting is my profession, dogs and their nature is my vocation.

Substantial experience in international automotive distribution is the enabler for the former, long experience with dogs for the latter – and adult training and development experience, a platform for both.

Sales Performance Consulting

Contents, Structure, Processes and KPIs for sustainable results

Planning and Steering Sales Results

A vast majority of sales organisations selling products or services, operate without a professional sales plan.

Focus is on the results, which one can’t change – instead of on the drivers leading to the results. Sales managers can therefore not sufficiently drive the sales planning, productivity and performance in their sales teams and sales consultants do not have sufficient structure to objectively approach an increase of their sales target.

Transparency in the sales process, the use of the right KPIs and competent sales leadership are pre-requisites to make B2B sales teams successful.

«SalesDriver» is the tool to support professional sales management.


SalesDriver is a sales management software tool for sales managers and sales consultants. It exclusively focuses on driving sales planning, -efficiency, -effectiveness and -performance.

SalesDriver tracks and analyses the process KPIs, identifies the risks/gap and as an early warning system, objectively describes «how much, of what» has to be done to meet sales targets.

It can be cascaded across all levels in the distribution channel – no matter if the client is an international OEM or a local sales company – with virtually no limits.

Depending on the starting point, we normally see 10-20% improvement of sales results by applying the SalesDriver philosophy, methodology and tool.



Dog Owners

Learn the language of the dogs.
Methods, tips and tricks are not sufficient.

70% of dogs show problematic behaviour on a walk. Mainly aggression – from early stage to full escalation.

Read why, what role the other end of the leash plays and what the dog needs to handle challenging situations in a relaxed manner.

If you are interested in dog behaviour, species appropriate dog education and training, building a strong relationship with your dog based on mutual trust, or have a dog that shows unwanted behaviour, this is definitely for you.

To date approx. 750 dog owners with their dogs showing challenging behaviour supported.


«DOGGISH» für Hundehalter

Methoden, Tipps und Tricks sind nicht ausreichend.

70% der Hunde zeigen problematisches Verhalten auf dem Spaziergang.
