Russ Taylor - Hampshire - Surrey
I have been around dogs all my life and always been passionate about their welfare, from the inside out. I have a passion for big dogs and I myself have a ridgeback called Kizzy.
I spent many years researching dog behaviour and read many books on the subject. Volunteering at a local rescue centre to help rehabilitate troubled dogs.
I was drawn to PURE Dog Listening as it was a no gimmick training method. I've never been into gadgets much, apart from a lead and a collar or harness of course. Having read the book and done the training with Caroline, it all fell into place, it was the missing link for me and have not looked back. I continue learning as we all do by reading and researching.
One of my passions is to study the food we give our dogs and now being a father I wish to move out and educate children in schools about dogs and being safe around them.
The great thing about working as a team, is that we support and help each other along the way. Although the frame work of the five is sacrosanct, we need to be inventive many times to fit the right solution to the dog. Thinking on your feet and working out what is best for each individual dog and family is paramount.
