Travel the world as part of your career

I’m a dog handler and trainer with the Royal Army Veterinary Corps (RAVC). I’ve travelled to places like Afghanistan, America, and Lebanon, helping to search vehicles for arms and explosives.

I’ve found myself in Camp Bastion, Lashkar Gah and Sangin as well as on the other side of the Atlantic working with role-specific search dogs which were being used in war zones.

Why I chose Hartpury

I always wanted to work with animals. That was my drive, and that’s why I’m here doing what I am today. The facilities and standard of teaching were extremely good and I have no doubt the qualifications and skills I gained helped me to get my job.

I don’t think there’s anything better than getting paid to work with dogs.
