Hi, my name is Ian and I was born in a small seaside town in the south of England, UK.

I have always wanted a dog and in 2012 my wife and I met an English Springer Spaniel puppy that we named “Bailey”, and he changed our lives for the better.

Our “furry son” is a very important part of our family and we love sharing experiences and adventures with him. Our latest adventure was relocating to New York City in the Fall and we have had so much fun exploring this fantastic city with Bailey. He is delighted with all the dogs and people he gets to meet.

My family and friends joke that I am an animal whisperer- that all dogs/ cats/ and small furries want to say hello and be with me! I love being outdoors, enjoy cycling, long walks and enjoying the parks in NYC.

I have really learnt through Bailey (who is clever and a little stubborn!) that training and rules are very useful, and have taken time to study techniques and styles. Outside of the home I also feel confident in assessing situations, reading other dogs behaviour and being an authoritative and protective pack leader.

I love nothing more than spending time with dogs, other animals and meeting their owners.
