I am Adrian Kollnberger B.A.Hons, MGODT, MCFBA and I have been running ABC for Dogs since 2008.
My experience in dog training started in 1998 when I became a Police Dog Handler.
During my career I have trained and worked general patrol dogs and drugs detection dogs. This gave me the chance to work with a number of different breeds including German Shepherds,Labradors, Belgian Mallinois, Rottweilers and Spaniels.
With my Patrol dogs I competed in the Police Working Dog Trials to a National level winning trophies in a variety of disciplines.
From this experience I developed my own philosophy towards dog training combining an understanding of dog behaviour and psychology with an open minded attitude to the variety of dog training methods that exist.
In order to further develop the knowledge that I had gained with the Police I started a degree course with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour andTraining and Middlesex University. In 2012 I completed this degree acheiving an award of B.A.Hons in Canine Behaviour and Training.
I am a Member of the Guild Of Dog Trainers and a Full member of the Canine and Feline Behavioural Association.I am also a member of The Kennel Club Accredited Instructor Scheme
Since starting ABC For Dogs I have helped numerous dogs and their owners with issues ranging from toilet training to severe aggression on a one-to-one basis or in a class.
My obedience classes are Kennel club listed and we pride ourselves on taking in any dog with any problem and running our classes in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere.This ethos also carries over into my agility classes and all other aspects of my dog behaviour and training solutions.
