Stephen Jenkinson works all over the UK as the only specialist in managing dogs and their owners; apart from being access adviser to the UK Kennel Club, he also works directly to their national park services, local councils etc advising on good, positive management (rather than just vilifying all dog owners or putting up "don't" notices).Stephen is coming all the way from the Orkney Islands, Scotland.

He is an independent consultant, providing specialist research, training and advice for Steven Jenkinsondogs owners in urban and rural contexts. 

He also writes a monthly feature in Your Dog - UK's biggest selling magazine for dog owners.  His work across the UK continues to change perceptions of dog "problems", and helps officials understand how better management can improve human health and wellbeing for all concerned. 

A former national park governor, Stephen is increasingly working with European laws that require dog-friendly places are provided in new housing developments to minimise impacts on protected species and wildlife.  He is a behaviour counsellor for the Pet Fostering Service and Blue Cross charities, helping pets and their temporry foster carers in Scotland where he lives.   UK Dog Magazine

He is also one of the speakers at this year's conference Animal Companion Conference in Australia in September at the invitation of ACAC.
