About Me

My name is Alex Butler and I have been Training and Deploying Search and Detection Dogs since 2007. I launched my initial business in 2013 running a successful Boarding Kennels. I then began offering dog training in 2015 and included scent detection and mantrailing classes and workshops in 2018. 

In 2020 I rebranded the business and moved to a larger training venue which lended itself to Search and detection work. The site has 20 acres of grass land and 5 acres of wood land, it also offers multiple inside training areas for both general dog training and Scent detection with dedicated areas for equipment work along with real life rooms and vehicles. 

I have an array of qualifications in dog training and behavioural but my most valuable leaning had been from other trainers and handlers over the years.

I am a qualified UK Sniffer Dogs Bronze Silver and Gold Instructor and a Scent Work UK instructor. 

My passion for dogs and dog training has lead me to train and work my dogs in my favourite discipline and I endeavour to extract the best out of you and your dog.
