Daniel is a consultant to A1K9 and a personal friend of Charles Wall, having met him over 20 years ago through their shared passion for dogs and dog training. He has a lifelong interest in German Shepherds and is by his own admission a bit of a 'dog nerd'!
He was a Metropolitan Police officer for over 25 years, until 2019, during which time he also created his own specialist security consultancy, dealing with corporates and high net-worth individuals around the globe.
In the private sector, in 2018 alone he worked in San Francisco, LA, NYC, Toronto, Dubai, Tokyo, Berlin, Stockholm and Paris, as well as the UK.
He is a recognised expert in personal security and defensive tactics instruction, having trained well in excess of 50,000 police and security personnel, ranging from those with zero skills right through to the close protection teams of RaSP (Royalty and Specialist Protection).
This links in very well with the ethos at A1K9 that everyone should be allowed to go about their lives peacefully and without fear of being accosted.
As a regular training associate both here at the A1K9 base and on handovers elsewhere, Daniel is available to offer his advice and professional opinion to our customers regarding all aspects of their personal security including any specific wants and needs.
Daniel is based very close to London in Herts/Essex and is able to provide demonstrations locally when required utilising his own A1K9s.
Always looking to improve his dog knowledge and skillset, Daniel has this year completed a level 3 award in Canine Psychology achieving a higher distinction.
