Expert Witness Dog Behaviour

Al Rankin BSc (Hons) CDBC

I provide dog behaviour expert witness services for owners who are facing prosecution under The Dogs (Northern Ireland) Act 1983 as well as the Dangerous Dogs (Northern Ireland) Act and amendments – Dogs (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2011.


Following instruction by your solicitor I will provide a full behaviour assessment of your dog along with an unbiased report for presentation to the court with appropriate references to the latest supporting animal behaviour science. If required I also provide specific recommendations for behavioural development and management controls.  I will be available to attend court hearings when required.


I graduated with first class honours from the University of Hull in Canine Training and Behaviour in 2016 and am a Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant with the International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants.  I currently provide expert dog training and behaviour modification services throughout Northern Ireland and specialise in evaluating and modifying aggressive dog behaviour.  I have assessed and worked with 1000's of dogs over the past 7 years providing comprehensive reports and expert behaviour modification programs.
