I have been around dogs my whole life as my mum was in the police force. I used to watch the police dogs when they were in training, and, as we also had our own dogs, I spent hours watching them play, run and interact, just watching their body language and how they interacted.
As a youngster growing up I was more comfortable around animals then people, so I got a part-time job at a kennels where I got involved in the training. I saw the many different ways that people trained their dogs and noticed that training was more effective when undertaken with positive reinforcement rather than using equipment. This was when people first noticed that my method of dog training is different; I watch dogs first to see what they will respond best to.
Soon after this I went to the States and worked with an Indian tracker who shared a great deal about tracking skills with me.
When I returned to the UK I set up a security firm (Dog Unit), in which the training centre was developed to test the dogs but also make it fun for them.
So with all the knowledge I have gained along my journey, I have developed a very busy and successful business model, finding many people over the years have asked me for advise and to supply highly trained dogs, whether they are in Security, or working for Special Forces or the Police. I am very proud to have supplied trained dogs all over the world.
