About Me

I am a professional detection dog trainer and was a senior instructor at the Police Dogs Training School in Pretoria, South Africa. I spent 8 years as an in country trainer for two British and one American Explosive and Drug Detection K9 companies in Afghanistan. I was also the first Project Manager to develop and run the explosive and narcotic detection K9 units at the Kabul and Khandahar airports in Afghanistan. 

I have trained Landmine detection dogs and have assisted in the training of Rhino horn, Ivory and Abalone (Paua) detection dogs.

In my 20 + years of being a professional detection dog trainer and handler, I have learnt and adapted many different training methods to be able to get the best out of every individual dog and handler, and I am still learning.
