“Probably the friendliest and most effective dog trainer and behaviourist in London.”
Based in London, Oli provides positive, modern, ethical dog training with an emphasis on behaviour.
What Oli offers during his One on One session or Training Packs is very unlike anything you would cover in Puppy Classes; he takes you through breed specific training to help your dog with potential future and present behavioural issues; he shares valuable tips to avoid the all so common separation anxiety, he takes you through 'Dog Park etiquette' and how to make the best out of each visit, tells you what is acceptable during play-fighting and what isn’t; and a lot more. Oli simply helps you communicate with your dog better, and bond with him or her using Positive Reinforcement as well as science based force-free methods that are fun for both dogs and humans.
Oli was handpicked by world famous, Pet Behaviour Counsellor, Sarah Whitehead (BA, MSc) and author of Clever Dog, to become one of her first Licensed Trainers under her Clever Dog Company Method and has recently been given the "Extra Mile" Award at the 2016 Inner Circle Convention.
Oli also successfully completed Dr Hare’s Dog Emotion and Cognition Course at Duke University. Dr Brian Hare, Ph.D is a Professor of Evolutionary Anthropology and Author of The Genius Of Dogs.
Furthermore, Oli has taken Sarah Whitehead's Courses, and regularly attends seminars, classes and lectures delivered by the likes of Chirag Patel, Bob Bailey, Susan Schneider, Steve Martin, Susan Friedman, Malena DeMartini, Jean Donaldson, Ian Dunbar and of course Sarah Whitehead herself.
So whether you already have a dog, or thinking about getting one, Oli can help you every step of the way. By giving them love, guidance and clear boundaries you’ll help them to be calmer, happier, more contented creatures.
Oli will be on hand to help you get the most out of your relationship with your dog and to feel confident in your abilities as a dog owner and a dog lover.
Oli is a licensed trainer, using the Clever Dog Company Method.

"Before we met Oli we were struggling with our puppy. The classes we had started weren't working for us, leaving us feeling frustrated and disheartened. Oli gave us valuable insight into our puppy's behaviour and left us feeling reassured and confident about training. He was friendly, approachable and extremely knowledgeable, he had even done his own research into the specifics of our dog's breed. We cannot recommend him highly enough."
