In an unregulated industry there are so many dangers associated with hiring a dog behaviourist. Ask questions and be sure that no harm will come to your best friend.
Our consultant Al Rankin is an expert in canine behaviour and development. He graduated with first class honours in Canine Behaviour and Training from the University of Hull and has over 20 years of experience of coaching and training adults; he knows how to get the very best from you and your dog.
He is a Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant with the International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants, a proud member of the force free Pet Professional Guild and is a Registered Accredited Animal Behaviourist with the Animal Behaviour & Training Council which is the regulatory body that represents animal trainers and animal behaviour therapists in the UK. He regularly attends training and behaviour symposiums with some of the world's leading animal scientists and behaviourists.
As well as teaching you and your dog important skills, he will also explain how dogs learn so that you can apply these principles to your real life situations. Developing an understanding of what motivates your dog's behaviour will help you to live in harmony with your best friend and help reduce problematic behaviour.
