Qualification & subject:
Undergraduate BSc (Hons) Animal Behaviour and Welfare
Dog Trainer, Royal Army Veterinary Corps (RAVC)

I’ve travelled to places like Afghanistan, America, and Lebanon, helping to search vehicles for arms and explosives.

Why I love my job

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.

I always wanted to work with animals. That was my drive and that’s why I’m here doing what I am today.

I carry out all the training for arms and explosives search dog training for the dogs and their handlers posted with our squadron. I teach them to look for ammunition, weapons and explosives in buildings, venues and outdoor areas across the UK and abroad.

My Hartpury experience

The facilities and standard of teaching at Hartpury were extremely good. I have no doubt the qualifications and skills I gained helped me to get my job.
