Like many, I grew up with dogs including a labrador, bulldog and the genetically obscure. I started working professionally with dogs in 1976, when I joined the Royal Army Veterinary Corp. For over 10 ½ years I served in areas as diverse as Melton Mowbray, Hong Kong & N. Ireland.
During that time I qualified as a dog handler, riding instructor and veterinary assistant.
I am the (very young !) lance corporal on the end..
For over 21 years I worked as a dog handler in the Metropolitan Police Service. As well as training ‘General Purpose’ Police dogs to find people and/or property by either tracking or searching. I have also trained & worked these dogs in ‘Firearms Recovery’, ‘Firearms Support’ & ‘Human Remains’ detection.
I qualified as a team trainer & since 2003 I have been a Member of the ‘British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers’.
I consider myself primarily as a dog trainer, who may be able to help with some behavioural issues, neither discipline can fully succeed without the other.
I often use ‘Bunkers Lane Open Spaces’ if you see me, please stop and say hello.
