Kris Kotsopoulos  – Precision Tracking Dogs

Having devoted 37 years of his life to the research, development and education of working dogs, Kris has acquired a unique and in-depth understanding of raising, developing and training dogs for a variety of purposes.

Through the skills and successes he has achieved, Kris has gained a sound understanding of what motivates animals to behave the way they do, and just as importantly, how to apply this knowledge to achieve specialised goals.

Kris currently shares this knowledge by operating both National and International training programs, seminars and workshops, each individually tailored to meet the needs of the general community, other trainers and government agencies globally.

Kris is also a co-founder of the National Dogs Trainers Federation – a representative and educational organisation for the dog training industry, which has now become the national representative body in Australia for dog trainers from all fields.

Kris’s passion is IPO and his last competition was in 2003 and he is currently working with many talented people nationally who are equally dedicated to the Sport of IPO.

Kris’s commitment to the dog world is further highlighted through his companies:
