Who is the Wild Dog?

An ex-firefighter of 15-years, I decided in 2007 that I needed new challenges in my life and decided to start studying a degree but could not decide on what!

Having been heavily involved in the championship dog-show circuit for some time, the choice was easy - dogs!!

I therefore embarked on a Masters in Canine Psychology and Behaviour through the CIDBT at Middlesex University.

Based in East Devon with direct access to the counties major roads, I am perfectly located to bring a fresh and realistic style of professional one-to-one dog training, puppy training & socialisation and canine behaviour correction to Devon, South & West Somerset, West Dorset & East Cornwall, WildDogz is your one stop service for all things "dog".

I am a qualified Professional Dog Training Instructor holding the National Dog Training Instructor Certificate (from CIDBT accredited to Middlesex University HE cert), Master Dog Trainer with the Guild of Dog Trainers and I am also a full member of the Canine & Feline Behaviour Association (CFBA) and am authorised to consult on Canine Behaviour under many pet insurance policies - you will need to check yours to see if you are covered for this.

Having had dogs for over 30-years and fed up with the un-realistic approach to training by many providers, I established WildDogz.

I have written articles for various charities & other publications and have regularly featured on BBC Radio Devon discussing dog related news and topics.

As from April 2024, I am also a certified UK Sniffer Dog Instructor (bronze) teaching Sniffer dog / scentwork detection courses and workshops to all dogs and clients from all backgrounds. Call for more information on these new courses - 07887998788.

Coming Soon - Uk Sniffer Dogs Tracking Courses (bronze level).

Across East Devon, many dog owners are revealing about how they have been Trevor'd at WildDogz - isn't it time you were Trevor'd too?

WildDogz, why this as a name for a training and behaviour correction service?

Well, mans association with dogs (Canis familiaris) reportedly goes back over many millenia to the time when Wolves (Canis Lupus) started the long and slow process of domestication as man and Wolf lifestyles began to merge and compliment one another - with this of course came the inevitable clashes of personality and culture between two wholly different species.

Dogs are still closely linked genetically to wolves and many of the dogs I work with have anti-social behaviour hence the name for our domesticated wolves ~ "WildDogz".
