Martin Gleadow was brought up in Carlisle but has lived and worked throughout Cumbria and North Lancashire.  He has many years of experience in both rescue and behavioural work and has worked with Northern Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue since 1990. He has also worked for other local rescues, both with dogs in their kennels and in their new homes in order to solve behavioural problems. Martin holds a Certificate in Canine Behaviour and Psychology. 

Martin also has excellent “people” skills gained during his time working in public service and enjoys working with people as much as he does with dogs.  He likes the challenge of problem solving and training people how to resolve their dog’s behavioural issues.

Martin is particularly interested in the effects of breeding and environment on canine behaviour.

Martin has three dogs - two Westies age 9 and 7 and a Standard Poodle age 9 months. 


Gill James moved to Keswick in 1989 and now lives in the beautiful Lorton Valley which gives easy access to all of West Cumbria, Carlisle, Keswick, Penrith and the Lakes.  Prior to this, she worked as a research scientist in the Biology Department of Newcastle University.  Gill obtained Membership of the Institute of Biology in 1979 after completing a course which included animal behaviour.  She was awarded an MSc by the University of Newcastle in 1984.

Gill spent a number of years working as dog coordinator for a local animal charity which was where she met Martin and accepted his offer of training and work within his practice.  During this time she also embarked on a course leading to an Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management.

Gill has never lost her interest in science and is particularly interested in the effects of genetics, physiology and pharmacology on behaviour.

Gill has three dogs, all adopted.  Belle is an 8 year old Beauceron (French Shepherd), Cody is an 8 year old Border Collie and Jake is a 6 year old Border Collie.
