Rainbow Dogs... where every dog is an individual
Mike Garner Assistance Dog Trainer Canine Partners Brighton Hove

Experience: Canine Partners

I worked at Canine Partners as an advanced trainer of assistance dogs.

I trained dogs to assist people with physical disabilities, including people using wheelchairs. He used professional training methods, including clicker training, to train dogs to learn complex tasks.

I then matched dogs with suitable clients and passed on the necessary dog handling skills to clients during intensive training courses.

I gained extensive experience of training dogs of various retrieving breeds:

  • Labrador Retrievers
  • Golden Retrievers
  • Flat coated Retrievers
  • Labradoodles
  • Goldendoodles

Media

I was also involved in several media projects at Canine Partners including demonstrations and interviews for TV, Radio and Newspapers:

  • Interview (BBC Radio Sussex)
  • Training demo (Korean TV)
  • Interview / demo (West Sussex County Times)
  • Interview / demo (Midhurst and Petworth Observer)
  • Training demo (various University film projects)
