Professional Dog Training
For Owners who Care

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.

Since Jeff's retirement in 2013, ProDog training organisation is now run by Tess Halling

ProDog training is backed-up by full professional indemnity insurance that protects the dogs, the owners and any third parties and also acknowledges accountability.

ProDog is also approved and used by vetinerary practices for both psychological and behavioural problem solving in the areas of Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes.
