Head Trainer

My name is Christian and I am the co-owner and head trainer here at Contento Canines. I am proudly certified through the Will Atherton Academy, which also provides continuous learning through various updated programs and courses. With a real passion and thirst for knowledge for dogs and canine behaviour, different training methods and techniques I am always looking to better myself, honing my craft and better my understanding which leads to us delivering our core goal in helping owners really achieve that ‘man’s best friend relationship’ with their dogs. By helping owners achieve this, I truly believe we can stop those difficult “do we need to rehome or give up our dog?” conversations from happening. I particularly love working with and teaching people and owners how to better understand our canine companions and what they need to be truly happy and content. There is absolutely nothing better than watching owners achieve things with their dogs that they never thought they could, and just seeing the joy shared between both owners and dogs when they accomplish things together.

Now that we’ve delved into the professional side of things, let me explain my love and passion for dogs and animals on a more personal level. Since I can remember I’ve always had a love for all living animals and creatures, but there has always been a special place in my heart for the best animal in the world, dogs. This love began with my first best friend, Sammy the Rough Collie, who had the most gentle and loving soul you could ever imagine. Sammy was with me from when I was a young child right up until I was a teenager. He was always there when I needed him the most, especially through some difficult periods in my life, and there has always been a spot missing since the sad day he passed away. Now, as you’ve probably read already in the ‘About Us’ section of this website, our Cockers, Louie and Charlie are the biggest reason why I decided to go down this dog training journey. Unfortunately, and unknowingly, we did all the wrong things we possibly could’ve done as dog owners, but having gone through it and seen all the incredible changes. A real passion was ignited, and the want to help owners and dogs achieve similar changes became apparent, which has opened the door to what I believe I was born to do.

Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit more about me, I look forward to meeting and helping you create a better relationship between you and your favourite canine companion.
