About Me

davendogI am a dog behaviourist, trainer and tutor and have been running my own full time practice in Norfolk for the last eleven years, working with owners and their pets in their own homes.

I am a fully qualified CAPBT Companion Animal Practitioner (Level 4 and 5 Diplomas in both Principles and Practical Aspects of Companion Animal Behaviour and Training). I am also a full member of The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT) and continue to maintain a rigorous programme of continued professional development for myself to ensure that I am up to date with all relevant methods and latest research.

I work with owners and their dogs on issues ranging from basic obedience to severe aggression, but specialise particularly in behaviour problems and human-dog relationships.

As well as working with individual owners and their dogs, I have also worked with various rescue organisations such as Wood Green Animal Shelters, PACT and the RSPCA. I also train animal professionals such as vets, vet nurses and rescue organisations in canine behavioural topics, contributing to their continual professional development (CPD). I was also formally a consultant to the Centre for Applied Pet Ethology (COAPE) for five years, and am now a tutor for IMDT, presenting seminars and writing correspondence courses nationally on dog behaviour.

All methods that I use in behaviour modification or training are force free, science based and kind to the dog. This ethos is central to my work.

Importantly, I work closely with local vets to ensure a ‘joined up’ approach to your dog’s behaviour issues and their modification.

I live in North Norfolk with my wife Lin, two Springer Spaniels and a very bossy Australian Shepherd cross!
