Paul Quinlan is a qualified home office police dog instructor with 20+ years experience as operational police dog handler, 12 years as police dog instructor Greater Manchester Police Dog Training Unit, including running their breeding and puppy training scheme. Police dogs use several skills to find and detain offenders, tracking being one of them. Paul also runs pursuit tracking courses for civilians.
When Paul began training dogs, the methods used were ‘old school’ and relied heavily on compulsion. Paul saw that reward and motivational techniques were not only more acceptable, but produced far superior results.
Paul appeared in the TV documentary Send in the Dogs, leading pursuit tracking for police dog handlers (Season 2, Episode 6, from 15:45).
