Paws For Conservation was founded by qualified detection dog handler and trainer, Rachael Flavell, in June 2020.
At Paws For Conservation we have a true love of dogs and are constantly humbled by their capabilities. We also, of course, have a genuine interest in conserving wildlife.
Our passion, ambition and drive means we are always willing to learn, adapt and evolve. The welfare of our dogs is paramount and we only use positive training techniques.
Having discovered a passion and fascination for the world of dogs and detection in her previous role as a dog handler and trainer at a leading international detection dog company, Rachael decided to embark on a new journey and to focus primarily on conservation and the use of dogs to assist in ecological surveys and to help fight wildlife crime.
Paws For Conservation now has multiple, highly experienced fully trained conservation dogs, all of which have been hugely successful within the field having participated in hundreds of surveys throughout the UK. Therefore any client can be assured that the dogs are extremely efficient to carry out the job and produce results. All have been externally tested by clients regularly to maintain the high standards needed.
We are fully insured and hold any appropriate licenses to train our dogs and to carry out work on live sites.
