TRAINER - ROBERT SANT
Rob is a long serving member of the Johnston K9 team and is currently working towards the KCGCDS Examiner Award. Having shared his entire life with dogs he cannot imagine life without at least one.
His interest in training stems from taking on Bud, a lab-staffy cross destined for rescue 13 years ago. Rob is also now the owner of a staffordshire bull terrier, Lexi, and both are testament to Rob's hard work, patience and dedication to both training and understanding dogs.
Rob is committed to positive training. His philosophy is 'You get out what you put in' so he encourages owners to develop the type of relationship that allows control and freedom and creates happy, safe dogs.
An ambassador for the Staffy breed Rob constantly seeks to overcome the reputation and common misconceptions about the breed and show everyone how brilliant they actually are.
Rob's main aims for the future, aside from being a brilliant trainer, are to achieve the top level of excellent in Rally Obedience with his staffy Lexi and at some point to acquire a Dutch Shepard to take all the way to Patrol Dog Champion.
