In this episode, I’m chatting with Jack Gradidge who is a Director for Dogs 4 Wildlife (@Dogs4Wildlife). Jack is a passionate rhino conservationist currently working with a breeding group of black rhinos in Wales, UK. His love for the natural world, and dedication to protect it, led him to form Dogs4Wildlife. This organization is awesome. They train anti-poaching dogs in the UK before deploying them to reserves across Africa. Their experienced team provides everything that reserves need in order to utilize these amazing dogs effectively. This includes advice on kennel design, handler training, toys, handling equipment, care advice, and continued support once the dogs are deployed. Pretty cool, right?
A lot goes into selecting, training, and deploying an anti-poaching pooch, which Jack explains in detail. He also shares what it’s like to start a not-for-profit organization from the ground up and everything that entails.
