As one of Britain’s top dog trainers, Graeme – aka “The Dogfather” has helped over 4,000 dogs and one fox. Here, he reveals why his magic formula for taming even the wildest dogs can work on humans.
Acknowledged by the media as one of Britain’s top dog trainers, Graeme – aka “The Dogfather” – criss-crosses the country helping dog owners with dog behaviour problems. This year he has worked from Aberdeenshire to Sussex with dogs of all sizes and all kinds of problems. In total, he has helped over 4,000 dogs (and one fox!). Graeme is one of the few dog trainers chosen by TV and radio broadcasters to feature in their programmes. He has trained dogs on the set of a Hollywood film and even helped celebrities with their pets. Unusually for a dog trainer, Graeme did not have a dog of his own until his 40s – he now owns a (very well behaved) Rottweiler called Gordon – and came into dog training relatively late in life.
Graeme is also an accomplished public speaker, writes a monthly column in Countryside magazine and competes in national ballroom and Latin competitions for fun.
