About Me

davendogI am a dog behaviourist, trainer and tutor and have been running my own full time practice for the last 15 years, working with owners and their dogs.

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, online lectures and writing internationally recognised correspondence courses 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 the veterinary community to ensure a ‘joined up’ approach to your dog’s behaviour issues and the appropriate behaviour modification plan.

My wife Lin works with me and we share our lives with two rescue dogs, a huge male Springer Spaniel and a rather aging yet spirited Australian Shepherd/Collie cross.
