About Me/ Company

Based in Anglesey near Llanfairpwll I'm a family man looking for dog walking opportunities in North West Wales which can fit in around my child care responsibilities :-) I'm really interested in all aspects of canine welfare and behaviour. I see dogs as being family members, cherished companions and I like nothing better than to meet other dog owners and share knowledge of our relationships with them and best methods of caring for our dogs. Knowledge gained can only strengthen the well-established and enduring bonds that exist between dogs and humans. Thanks for reading.



Previous Experience

Gareth is a former Partnership Support Officer at Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and has a wealth of experience working with Hearing Dogs and Dual Assistance Dogs (deaf-blind). This has included training dogs in general obedience and recall to a high standard as befitting an assistance dog. All training has followed positive reinforcement (reward based) methodology. Gareth has owned dogs now for over 20 years and is currently partnered with Derfel who is an 8 year old Black Lab trained assistance dog. Gareth has a hearing loss himself.



Qualifications & Training

Gareth earned his B.Sc (hons) in Agricultural Biochemistry and his MPhil in Animal Nutrition at Aberystwyth University. He is affiliated to the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers (BIPDT) having been assessed and obtained a certificate in basic instructional techniques.

Gareth is an experienced hill walker and enjoys walking with dogs in rural and coastal areas. He previously trained for his Mountain Leadership (MLTB) Certificate. He has recently attended a refresher course for canine first aid.



Relevant Info

Fully insured with local authority licence to board dogs. Thanks for reading and do get in touch if you would like to meet me and Derfel.
