Our Founder’s Story - Winston Cadogan

After losing my mother at a young age, I lost my confidence to connect with other people. By spending quality time with my German Shepherd, I was able to reach a more well-balanced emotional state, which, in turn, helped me engage better with people.

While attending school, I worked at a veterinary surgery. After graduating, I gained my qualification in veterinary nursing. In addition, I also completed certified courses in Fire Safety and First Aid. I then went on to complete my instructor’s certificate at the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers (BIPDT) and proved my ability to train dogs. By mentoring several trainers, I have learnt many dog training techniques which help me in training dogs with various problems.

Through training dogs, I was able to gain a special understanding of how they think. This led me to realise my dream of helping owners create healthier relationships with their dogs.

I then decided to go into the security industry and train dogs for security purposes. This led me to train several of my own dogs including German Shepherds, Rottweilers and various bull breeds. My dogs and I then went on to compete in several security trials.

I competed in working trials with my Belgian Shepherd and together, we have achieved several titles. We went on to compete in the Internationale Prüfungs-Ordnung (IPO) formerly known as Schutzhund, which is a competitive three-part dog sport. This is where we achieved a B-Grade Helpers License. We also became involved with the United Kingdom Tracking Association and work our way up to gain an Expert Tracking Certificate.
