Kevin is the Senior Clinical Animal Behaviourist at Pawrus® Animal Behaviour Clinic, Training Director at Pawrus® Dog Training Academy and Co-founder at Pawrus® Pet Care Group.

He is the Supervising Teacher and First Pawrus® Certified Partner Trainer™ (PCPT™) of The Elite Positive Dog Trainer, which is widely recognised by industry leaders as the gold standard in professional dog training.

Kevin obtained his Professional Diploma in Dog Training & Behaviour with Distinction from Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training & Behaviour as a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner (KPA CTP) under the Mentorship of World Renowned Dog Trainer and Former American Kennel Club (AKC) Obedience Judge Mrs Terry Ryan. Previously, he was a Military Working Dog Trainer (Narcotics Detection) with the Singapore Armed Forces Military Police Command’s Military Working Dog Unit.

His interest in dog behaviour and training began at the young age of 18 during his National Service (NS) in the Army. While he enjoys training dogs, he realised that the bond between dogs and humans can be adversely impacted by behaviour-related issues and conflict arising from misunderstandings between humans and dogs, causing unwanted detriment to both human and animal welfare. Ultimately, his focus is on enriching the human-animal bond by shaping the positive education experience for all, especially fearful and aggressive animals. He has strong research interests in canine cognition and emotional intelligence.

Thirteen years since, he has successfully attained independent certification as a Certified Professional Dog Trainer – Knowledge Assessed® (CPDT-KA®) and Certified Behavior Consultant Canine – Knowledge Assessed® (CBCC-KA®). Additionally, under the tutelage of Dr. James C. Ha (PhD, CAAB) and Dr. Renee Robinette Ha (PhD), he has Graduated with Distinction from the University of Washington’s Certificate in Applied Animal Behavior (UW-AAB).

In his spare time, he lectures at the Institute of Technical Education’s CET Division, teaching pet owners the fundamentals of dog behaviour in the Basic Dog Behaviour and Management Short Course.

Presently, he is enrolled in the Master of Science (MSc) in Clinical Animal Behaviour Program at The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, University of Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom and is tutored by Dr. Amy Miele (PhD, ESVPS Cert AnBeh, MRCVS, BVM&S). Moving forward, he is working towards being Certificated by the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASAB) as a Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviorist (CCAB).

His middle-term goal is to qualify for a PhD in Animal Behaviour to gain the opportunity to pioneer scientific research in his areas of interest.

His dream is that one day, Animal Behaviour can be easily understood by everyone and practiced only with positive and scientific methods. He wants to help pet parents and animal companions forge lifetime and meaningful bonds by designing a common avenue for them to better understand one another through simplified, confidence-building experiences.

Working collaboratively between humans and animals, his training philosophy is:

“Shaping Confident Animals with Positive Scientific Solutions™”
