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, experienced fully trained dogs, all of which have surveyed hundreds of turbines and been externally tested by clients, and can offer assistance in ecological surveys around the UK.
We are fully insured and hold any appropriate licenses to train our dogs and to carry out work on live sites.
