Paws For Conservation was founded by qualified detection dog handler and trainer, Rachael Flavell, in June 2020. Due to the increase in demand and work, The following year she was joined by fellow dog hander and trainer Aran Clyne.
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.
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 focus primarily on the use of detection dogs for conservation purposes to assist in ecological surveys.
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 of our bat carcass dogs are externally tested by clients regularly to maintain the high standards required.
We are fully insured and hold any appropriate licenses to train our dogs and to carry out work on live sites.
