Simon Allen



Barking Mad Rickmansworth are absolutely thrilled and honoured to announce the addition of Simon Allen to the Doberdayz Training Team.  Simon has had a long career working with dogs and brings with him a wealth of experience, knowledge and passion for dog training.  A former police officer and police dog handler, Simon worked and owned German Shepherds for General Purpose & Firearms Recovery and has a love for larger working breeds.

Since retiring from the Police Simon owned and ran his own fun positive reward based dog training school which offered private consultations at home. Simon is an experienced dog behaviourist and holds an extensive list of qualifications in both Dog Training, Behaviour Management, Nutrition, Communication and First Aid.

Simon will introduce a whole brand new package of dog training classes and courses which will offer new and exciting exercises and tasks for both you and your dog.  BRAND NEW IS Simon’s CSI Package (Canine Scent Investigators) will include Tracking, Suspect Search and Property Search courses. These courses are open to all breeds, whatever your level of training, using your dog’s instinctive behaviour and channelling it into positive stimulating and fun exercises mostly involving your dog using his nose in scent detection.  The Courses will be run at different levels culminating with a Certificate at the end of each module.  It will then be open for you to take part in our ultimate and thrilling adrenaline rush  “Detect and catch the Criminal” Course which will bring all your newly honed skills together and will involve you and your dog working together as a team in order for you both to scent clues, track and catch the criminal!  These courses will be fun, friendly and reward based and will build a solid fun based working relationship between you and your dog.
