I am a fully insured professional dog behaviourist and obedience trainer. Who has owned and worked dogs for over 35 years, starting with gundogs then moving to the behavioural and obedience side of training companion dogs. My successful practice covers Greater London, Surrey, Middlesex, Berkshire, Kent, Sussex, Hampshire, Though I am available to travel to any location in the UK if required.
Recommended by numerous Vets, Rescue Centre's, and Charities, I have written hundreds of articles covering behavioural and training problems for dog magazines including Our Dogs, Dogs Monthly, Shooting Times, Pet Talk and Pet Owner Magazine. I have also acted as a behavioural expert for Disney, Sky, BBC, ITV, and LBC. and have often appeared on television, radio and in national newspapers.
I have done numerous practical displays, seminars and store openings at international, national symposiums, and local events including shows, clubs, and major presentations. I explain and demonstrate how to get the most from your dogs covering all aspects of training, behaviour, communication, and body language, including how dogs learn and think.
I work as an Expert Witness under the Dangerous Dogs Act and have assessed many dogs that are either accused of being a banned breed or dangerously out of control. I prepare reports and attend court as a recognised expert in my field of work.
I assess dogs for child fostering agencies. This is to assess that the dogs are not a threat to the newly fostered child. I have also worked with the handlers and dogs that are tasked with locating explosives at Heathrow Airports freight centres.
I am the founder member and current chairman of PAACT The Professional Association of Applied Canine Trainers, which brings the disciplines of obedience training and behavioural counseling together under one banner.
