Craig Flint, the Dog Man
Craig is a former Home Office approved Police Dog Handler, trainer and ex-military man with more than 20 years’ experience; there is not much he has not seen, heard or partaken of. He has trained dogs for high-profile sieges, arrests and royal events alike. He has loved every minute of a journey that has taken him from Staffordshire Police to The Royal Army Veterinary Corps.
Sharing his professional insights and showing how modern, up-to-date, proven, praise and reward based dog training techniques can be applied in the home became an inevitable progression in his career and one which he very much enjoys and is the basis of his business.
Then there is that ‘extra bit’ which he gives to each and every dog instinctively. It is why he is referred to as The Dog Man, and why the name has stuck, it is the "je ne sais quoi" of how he achieves great results. He seemingly appreciates and understands how an animal learns, whether it be a Great Dane or a Chihuahua.
If you are looking for a happy, attentive, faithful and loyal dog that you will be proud to have accompany you everywhere, whatever the event, and want to train the positive reward based way Craig is the person to talk to.
Lynne Land and Mojo
"Mojo is a six year toy poodle from show lines, although she didn’t take to showing and preferred trick training, so while I was training her to do agility I started clicker training her, I entered a talented pet show at the National pet show and she won it! Then we were asked to go on ‘this morning’ she has also appeared in the first ‘Kingsman’ film. She were then asked to dog ‘carfest’ with Chris Evans and were on a huge festival stage! We met some of the dancers from Strictly which was pretty exciting. Then we were asked to appear in a show at Derby Theatre and were also at the National pet show doing a display and were approached by BGT if we would like to audition, so we did that and got 4yeses but no further, Mojo is a school reading dog and the children love her and inspired me to write a picture book about her, it’s gone really well, lots more books in the pipeline. We have done displays at the pet show, paws in the park, Crufts, National pet and many schools and clubs." Lynne
Lynne will be also signing her & Mojo's book on the day
