About Me

Adem Fehmi

 

My fascination with dogs started as a young child and since then I have studied, observed, worked and lived with these amazing creatures. My first dog was what I considered to be a badly behaved little terrier; I now know that it was me being a bad leader that caused the terrier to have the behavioural problems, he went on to become my best friend for 17 years. I started working at a boarding kennels from my early teens and it was whilst working in the kennels that I was fortunate enough to experience a huge range of canine characters and behaviours. When I started at the kennels I was just a dog lover, but by the end of my time there I understood dogs on a whole new level and had learnt how to teach dogs to live as a well mannered kennelled animal. Over the years I have spent a huge amount of time working with all types of dogs, my areas of training include many disciplines ranging from obedience and agility to rescue dogs and training for the shooting field. I have demonstrated on several occasions on behalf of the Kennel Club as a behaviourist both at Crufts and the CLA game fair. Each individual case of dog and owner I see brings me a new and exciting challenge to tackle and each case comes with its own unique reward. I teach people to understand their dogs using simple and kind methods coupled along with exercises which help to eliminate unwanted behaviour. To my delight I have actually managed to be featured in both the Shooting Times and Country Magazine.
