Adrian Kollnberger’s experience in dog training started in 1998 when he achieved his dream and became a Police Dog Handler.

This gave him the chance to work with a number of different breeds including German Shepherds,Labradors, Belgian Mallinois, Rottweilers and Spaniels With his Patrol dogs he has competed in the Police Working Trials to a National level winning trophies in a variety of disciplines.
