ProDog offers professional
one-to-one dog training services in the areas of Lincolnshire and East Anglia.
The founder of ProDog Jeff Whyatt has over 40 years of experience
and is an expert in his field. This experience includes training specialist
Police dogs for search and detection, including explosives and drugs.
Jeff has spent over 25 years as a well respected Police dog handler
and Home Office Qualified Instructor. He is a member of the British
Institute of Professional Dog Trainers and a Fellow of the Institute
of Pet Behaviour Consultants. Jeff has also studied and is certified
in canine psychology and behaviour.
With all this experience,
Jeff was able to give owners a greater understanding as to why their
dog behaves in a particular way thereby eliminating any misunderstanding
between dog and owner, which can be the cause of many problems.
By using correct training methods for both the dog and the owner,
Jeff ensures that the owner is able to use and also retain the skills
necessary for continued training.
Prodog was formed in 1974 after Jeff started and ran the Mid Beds dog training club, which became so popular, it soon outgrew its then venue. On restarting training from its new venue Jeff renamed the club as the PRODOG TRAINING ORGANISATION.
In 1998 Jeff was joined by Tess Halling who trained under him then took several courses and soon qualified as a training instructor. She has also studied and is qualified in canine psychology and is a member of the Institute of Pet Behaviour Consultants. Tess deals with canine behavioural issues in the Bedfordshire/Northamptonshire areas. The group dog training classes in Bedfordshire are now run by Tess who is ably assisted by Sue Beard who is currently studying and is soon to become a fully qualified training instructor and canine behaviourist.
