At For Dogs' Sake we tend to do things the “Dog's” way... All pets, but in particular our favourite
of them all, require as much mental stimulation as they do physical and that's where the FDS Team come
This is our story...
Founder, Jonathan Garstang had a lifetime experience in dog training and welfare. After working with a dog trainer in Bristol for 2 years he moved to London and set up his own practise. As well as working domestically Jonathan also spent 3 months in Lusaka, Zambia working at “LAWS” (Lusaka animal welfare society) as an advisor. His role there was to train the dog handlers and establish new routines for the animals in order to make it easier for them to be re homed. He had a short stint in Serbia where he assisted local dog shelters on individual cases and is currently in Rhodes, Greece supporting “RAWS” (Rhodes animal welfare society).
Since 2008, For Dogs' Sake have helped hundreds of families in South West London that need assistance in tackling 'dog/owner problems'. We believe in empowering the owner and their family with the tools and knowledge to nurture their own unique bond with their dog.
Many of these problems stem from the simple reason our dog is under stimulated and often it's difficult for an owner to recognise this; with the help of our expert dog trainers we will focus on your dog's unique idiosyncrasies and assure a slow integration to the pack, so that in time they can become their best self.
In 2016, Oliver Sciota and his team of Dog Care professionals partnered up with Jon and in early 2017, Oliver took full control of the company and with the support of experienced dog handler, Steve Cornes there has been expansion in Surrey and in different London postcode areas. Since then, we have built a new HQ in Motspur Park with a brand new Grooming Parlour owned and ran by Natalie Rodrigues - Oliver's fiancée. This space is in full use and allows for puppies to be socialised and for older dogs to take it easy after a long pack walk. The FDS Crew's dedication towards your four-legged-friends will be evident to any loving owner who knows their dog, the fun and care displayed by the team is really unique and our dog clients can certanily vouch for us!
