Balázs Simon

Owner and Senior Trainer
Description

Before establishing Canine Family Protection, Simon spent several years as a police and security dog trainer and later he specialized in training family and sporting dogs.

The training method Simon developed is based on the 25 years of work he put in training dogs for several purposes. The system is perfectly optimal for tailoring it to different breeds and ages. This flexibility is the key to the creation of your perfect family protection dog.

Daniel Rigney

Daniel Rigney

Socialization trainer, Kennelman
Description

Daniel has been working and studying by Simon’s side for three years. He is specializing in obedience and socialization trainings. Dog socialization requires exposing and desensitizing your dog to the sights, sounds, places, and people they can encounter in everyday life. While typical group training sessions provide a start to socialization, they usually are not comprehensive enough to produce a well-adjusted dog. Therefore Daniel fits every day walks and hikes into our dogs’ life.

Philip Macbain

Philip Macbain

Physical Conditioning, Kennelman
Description

Philip joined our team four years ago as a kennelman, and soon he started to help out with the physical conditioning of our dogs. Dogs involved in energetic sports or careers need the same attention to their physical and mental states as sport athletes. Therefore there are scheduled exercises for our dogs. Philip combines his passion for sports and dog trainings and loves taking our dogs for a run or hike, as well.
