​​I've had a love of dogs for as long as he can remember. For over 20 years I've cared for dogs and learnt a lot from them. Five years ago I was fortunate to see my hobby turn into a career and as well as being a part of UK Guide Dogs I'm proud to be a part of the Domesticated Manners team run by friend, mentor and highly respected animal behaviourist Chirag Patel. I train assistance dogs to enable blind and partially sighted people to enjoy greater independence and mobility.


I'm a qualified Guide Dog Mobility Instructor and Guide Dog Trainer. I attend numerous seminars to keep up to date with cpd, including those taught by Chirag Patel, Ken Ramirez, Susan Friedman, Kay Lawrence, Susan Schneider, Daniel Mills, Helen Zulch, Clive Wynn, Steve Martin, Twycross zoo and ZSL, Educating animals, supported five chicken training workshops, Dogs Trust, Kendal Shepherd, Grisha Stewart, Dr Ian Dunbar, Victoria Stilwell, Trevor Cooper, IMDT and Clicker Expo 2014, 2015 and 2018, part of the WOOF team 2017 and 2019 and many, many more CPD!

I believe we never stop learning and still have a vast amount to learn about dogs. The day I stop learning is the day I stop training dogs.
