Meet Our Team
Darren's passion for animals started at a very early age, which developed into him seeking a career where his passions could flourish.
Always having a natural affinity with dogs, destined him to become a professional dog trainer / behaviourist where he sought to utilise his expertise to further help animals around the world.
What better way to achieve this than by training the dogs within his care to protect and conserve endangered species across the globe.
Jacqui Law BSc (Hons)
Jacqui gained her Bachelors Degree with First Class Honours in Animal Behaviour and Welfare in 2015.
She grew up on a small holding helping raise various species of animals, including a breeding programme for endangered parrots. This led to a life long passion for working to help protect and support species survival.
As a current professional dog trainer / behaviourist working with animals is a lifestyle choice as much as a passion. Being part of a team that is helping to support both animals and their carers is the pinnacle of her career to date.
