The story of my connection and love for dogs began when I was just a young boy. My father was a professional dog trainer and handler training police and army dogs to detect and sniff out substances, conduct search and rescue missions, to track criminals and protect perimeters .
Being surrounded by dogs on a daily basis, and having our own pet dogs from a very young age, I was captivated by their intelligence, their unconditional love and their commitment and loyalty to humans not to mention the happiness and sense of wellbeing they brought to my life. I learnt at a young age that there was a reason dogs are commonly called, ‘man’s best friend’.
After several years of serving in the army, and with all of my service still being occupied by my association with dogs, I migrated to Australia. Shortly after arriving I adopted a rescue puppy, then another. They were a huge part of my life for many years, however after their passing, especially at a grand age, the pain and grief that followed prevented me from being able to share my life once again with a treasured four-footed.

My life was dog-less for the next 2 years and it was relatively recently changed with the arrival of my beautiful dogs. At that moment, the pain of the past melted away and my heart began to heal. Not only that, but I emotionally reconnected with my childhood and my father, and the dynamic and loving training environment I had been exposed to all those years.
As a result of this rebirth, Cause for Paws was seemingly established with the aim of providing professional and breed specific dog training and to give back to people and their cherished four-footed household members, the love and devotion the dogs in my life have given unconditionally to me.
Many years of animal study and their habitats, their behaviour, their social life, the structure within the Grey Wolf pack life in their natural habitate in the US for almost 6 years, have been a valuable additional vault of information that I have acquired in over 38 years. These years of hands on experience allow me to understand their way of communication and general behaviour, thus allowing me to draw on knowledge, implement strategies in the most effective way and educate their owners with the correct information and handling of a dog.
