   Home      About us
My name is Jason. I am British male in my early 40s and I run GCOB. Amongst other things, I was formerly a project manager in the electronics industry. I also ran a research and development department for a large American owned company based in the UK. However, I have long since swapped the desk, airport lounge and unwelcome stress for a much simpler and more eco-friendly life. Educationally, I am a graduate in electronics and hold a Diploma of Music. I have also studied some behaviourism at degree level. (Please note though, I am not a qualified animal behaviourist.)
Rescue Charities:
I have owned a rescue dog for about 7 years now and I try to involve him in as much of my life as possible. I began volunteering with Battersea Dog's and Cat's Home in 2009 and helped out there for about 2 years. My role was "dog socialiser" working with abandoned and stray dogs. This very rewarding pursuit gave me experience with a huge variety of breeds from Chihuahuas to Malamutes. I also helped out with the behaviour unit and the new intake section of the home and so gained hands-on experience of dogs with behavioural issues.  I also carried out voluntary work for a smaller animal rescue charity at around the same time, one based in north London. This work included client home visits on behalf of the rescue centre and fund raising. 
As the business proprietor, I am the only member of the team who handles clients' keys and enters clients' homes. However, I employ several part-time assistants who may join me at the park or common to help out with the dogs. I take great care to train these assistants to the highest standard and I am always on hand nearby to support them if necessary. This way I keep the usual dog walking group size down to four dogs per person. 
I have full pet business insurance with PBI. This covers dog walking, pet minding, pet sitting & pet boarding for "Public Liability", "Care, Custody and Control of Animals" etc.
