Meet Glyn, the owner at Cheshire Dog Services…

From an early age, Glyn had a love of animals, especially dogs and horses. In fact at the age of 10, he was helping look after German Shepherd guard dogs belonging to a Mobile Dog Security company that was associated with a lady with whom he was having horse riding lessons.

After playing lacrosse at school, for Cheshire, and up to England level, he acquired a horse and competed at various riding club competitions.

Sadly, his busy lifestyle as an estate agent wasn’t conducive to having a dog, feeling it unfair to leave a dog on its own for long days at a time – there were no dog walkers around then! Several years later, the time was right to get a dog, so two miniature Schnauzers came along as pups.

After a few years when these were trained, two further dogs came along, both were Maltese Terriers and lovely dogs, again very different characters but similar temperaments.

In 2015 Glyn fulfilled his life-long desire to own a German Shepherd, Zen came along as an 8 week old pup, and what a dog he turned out to be. Two years later, he bought another German Shepherd pup, Kai, from the same breeder. Both dogs are fully trained and are a joy but hard work!

Striving to learn more and given his competitiveness, in 2021, he bought a Czech working line GSD to do the Schutzhund IGP sport – effectively a 3 day event for dogs, involving footprint tracking and article identification, obedience and protection work, Zar is one full-on dog, very bright and challenging but stunning in his ability to learn. He also has three small breed dogs, two Lhasa Apso’s and a cute little Yorkie his daughter looks after, all have been from pups. He’s decided to draw the line at 6 dogs!

After an interesting and challenging career spanning many years in estate agency, most of it spent around the Altrincham & Hale area, Glyn decided to pursue a whole new career working with dogs.

Whilst Glyn spends much of his time training dogs (or the owners!) he always strives for better results. Being addicted to learning, he has watched or attended many various seminars and courses. Glyn holds a diploma (merit pass) in Advanced Canine Behaviour from the esteemed British College of Canine Studies & has also gained a membership to The Guild of Dog Trainers. His love of dogs sees a bond forming almost immediately with whichever dog he comes across, his love of training and behaviour is his passion, but most of all, he loves being able to apply the knowledge and experience he has accumulated over the years to help make a difference in the lives of dogs and the humans who live with them.

He brings to the business a professional and highly diligent attitude, a high level of customer service, is fully DBS certified and Fully Insured.
