At Royvon Merthyr Tydfil, we know the challenges that can come from finding the right training and care for your dogs. That’s where our talented and trustworthy team come in! Meet one of our Trainers, Tom, here!
Tom spent ten years in the prison service and was looking for a new challenge. He wanted to follow a lifelong dream of working with dogs. So, he found a local canine training academy. After a discussion with the tutors, he decided he would start with a drug detection course with both passive and proactive dogs, general-purpose and explosive detection dogs. This all tied in well to his previous experience.
Tom attended the dual purpose drug detection dog handler course in 2014 and was an assistant trainer at Malpeet K9 Academy. He then progressed to work on a government contract in France. This involved specially training and using dogs to search vehicles.
Tom is qualified in working with and training detection and general-purpose dogs. His huge love of dogs is plain to see (and they seem to really like him too)!
He is new to Royvon and looking forward to working with all of our dogs, so they can lead happy and settled lives at the heart of their families.
Tom lives in South Wales and spends his free time marching up mountains with his rescue staffy Jake, and using him to practice new tricks with.
