Meet Your Trainer

Allan Ritchie MGoDT (MPDTI)

Allan has over 40 years of experience working with dogs. Becoming obsessed with dogs from a young age he joined the RAF as a dog handler and learnt his trade. Then moving into the Police force as part of the rapid response and hostage rescue team, there’s not a lot that phases Allan Ritchie. His ability to keep calm, understand and help people are key to his success and well deserved excellent reputation as a dog trainer.

After retiring from the Police force he built a kennel and dog training centre and realised that he should be concentrating on the other end of the lead, teaching and helping people to learn the skills they needed to live in harmony with their dogs.

Never far from his side is Otto his Labrador who you will certainly meet in Clan Dog’s training videos and events. They can often be found floating down the Tweed in a kayak together.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any questions that are not answered here, please reach out to us at

Professional dog training is an investment in your dog's well-being and your relationship with them. A well-trained dog is more likely to be well-behaved, making daily life more enjoyable. Learning from a professional trainer gives you the skills and tools to address behaviour problems, potentially preventing future issues that could be costly or difficult to manage.

The timeline for seeing results can vary depending on your dog's age, breed, and the specific behaviours being addressed. However, we always strive to achieve noticeable improvements in a relatively short time. See our Testimonials and Reviews from clients. We can't stress enough though - consistency in training and following through with recommended exercises at home, play a significant role in speeding up the learning process.

It doesn't have to be! We offer a range of packages to suit different budgets, and you can get started with our professional dog training services from as little as just £14.99 a month. Consider the long-term benefits of a well-trained dog, including potential savings on future veterinary bills and the overall improvement in your dog's quality of life. Ultimately, the investment in professional training can lead to a happier, healthier relationship between you and your dog - so we certainly feel that is well worth the investment required!
