Graeme’s expertise in training dogs spans nearly 15 years, and in 2014 he became the first certified dog instructor of The Kennel Club Accredited Scheme for Instructors in Dog Training and Canine Behaviour (KCAI) in Aylesbury, United Kingdom.

The Kennel Club is recognized throughout the UK and even worldwide as being one of the number one professional bodies for people who provide training and advice on dog behavior.

Working with rescue dogs is something especially close to Graeme’s heart. Not only has Graeme worked with many rescue centers across around the globe, but Graeme also owns a rescue dog himself – Charlie; who due to his aggressive behavior, had had 4 previous owners before he was even 14 months old.

With Graeme’s scientific approach to dog behavioral issues, his practical skills, combined with using force-free methods to manage and train dogs, is respected by his peers and pet dog owners alike.

Originally hailing from Bethlehem, PA, I ventured across the pond to the UK in 1975 to pursue my passion for veterinary care. After graduating from the Medical Institute of Minnesota in 1977 with a certificate in Veterinary Technology, I set my sights on the bustling city of London to kickstart my career.

However, after finding that being a vet tech wasn’t quite what I expected, I took a few detours before circling back to my true calling: dog training.

Since then, I’ve immersed myself in the world of canine behavior and training, earning certifications like CPDT-KA and CPDT-KSA, as well as becoming a Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI) and a Certified Separation Anxiety Trainer (CSAT).

I’m an active member of various professional organizations and clubs, such as the Weimaraner Club of England and the Association of Professional Dog Trainers.

My dedication to helping both dogs and their owners extends beyond my professional life. I’m deeply involved in charity work, having founded Sally’s Kids, a charity supporting underprivileged children for 26 years.

My passion for dog training goes hand in hand with my commitment to giving back to the community.

Living in the vibrant city of London with my husband and our beloved dogs, Nova and Polly, I continue to explore the depths of dog training through various competitions and activities, from tracking to agility.

My dogs have not only been my companions but also invaluable teachers, shaping me into the trainer I am today.

I strive to stay at the forefront of dog training techniques, particularly focusing on helping anxious, aggressive, and separation anxiety-prone dogs.

Through positive reinforcement and a deep understanding of canine behavior, I aim to empower both dogs and their owners to build stronger, more fulfilling relationships.

In my journey as a dog trainer, I’ve learned that every dog has a story to tell – and it’s my privilege to help them share it with the world.
