Hi I’m Paddy – I am a dog trainer and behaviour adviser living in the East Midlands (England). I have run my dog training and behaviour business now – Teamwork (Dog) Training – for 22 years working these days mostly with aggression, but I teach competitive obedience too.
I have been a course junkie in my time and have dabbled or competed in most dog training activities, but sometimes that has taken a back seat as I often have rescue dogs that need help with just being dogs and yes, from time to time, I have quite simply messed things up so my dogs haven’t made it to where I wanted them to reach! But as some guru or another must have said somewhere we learn through our mistakes so I hope they have made a me a better trainer and dog person.
A lifetime’s experience aside, I also have a Masters degree in Clinical Animal Behaviour from the excellent University of Lincoln, so in theory I have the theory as well.
But enough of me – to the Blog…
