Accomplishments:

Education

In 2003, I obtained my Bachelor Degree of Biological Science from La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia. My academic background has proven to be very valuable when it comes to coaching people in dog training because it enables me to structure my ideas and practical knowledge into a systematic way of teaching, which is clear, direct, objective, practical, and easy to understand.


Qualifications & Experiences

I have been intensively and extensively involved with dog training since 2000. The fields I’ve worked in include the training of pet dogs, security dogs, police dogs, and sport dogs.

At the beginning of my career, pet dogs were the most common dogs I came across and my job was to either train these dogs myself or teach their owners how to train them. Most of these training involved basic obedience, socialisation, house breaking, structuring the dogs’ lives to fit into their human families, and behavioural problem solving. Working as a pet dog trainer gave me a lot of experiences with dogs coming from a wide range of breeds, types, ages, and backgrounds.

My work on the early stage involved frequent visits to my clients' homes. Some dog owners would like their dogs trained to guard their properties and stop intruders, or certain security officers needed their dogs to be trained for patrol work. My priority was to train these dogs as a decoy to develop their protective instincts, while instructing the handlers how to keep their dogs in control and focused. Because this type of dogs are required to eventually bite the aggressor for real when absolutely necessary, I also expanded my skill and knowledge as a decoy to prepare dogs so they are “streetwise” and capable to defend their owners under hostile situations. These experiences opened up a lot of doors for me, and I’ve had many opportunities to work with and instruct various police department personnel around the world.

In sports, I've been an active competitor in Schutzhund/IPO since 2004 and since 2007 I've also been cross-training in Ring Sports. To this date, I’ve trained and titled 7 different dogs from puppies to various Schutzhund/IPO and Mondio Ring levels. They are:

  • Schwarchund Marko “Corvette” (Malinois) SchH II, IPO3, 2 Times IPO World Championship Competitor
  • Eclipse van de Duvetorre (Malinois) IPO3, 6 Times IPO World Championship Competitor
  • Genghis van de Duvetorre (Malinois) MR1
  • Raiser's Bronco (German Shepherd) IPO1
  • Karel du Triangle Magique (German Shepherd) IPO1
  • Jack vom Heltorfer Forst (Rottweiler) IPO3, 2015 IFR IPO World Championship Competitor
  • Badboy vom Checkpoint Charlie (Rottweiler) BH

  • I’m the first person to title a dog to SchH/IPO3 from China and Hong Kong
  • I’m the first FCI, FMBB, and IFR world championship competitor from China and Hong Kong
  • I’m the first person from China and Hong Kong to title a dog to Mondio Ring 1
