The centre was set up by Shaun Ellis (wolf behaviourist) and his wife Kim Ellis who share a passion for behaviourism and strive to interpret the wolf/dog world to the human world and the human world to wolves and dogs creating understanding and harmony.
Shaun Ellis's life irrevocably changed the first time he set eyes on a wolf. He has placed himself in what people see as constant danger by living with wolves as a member of the family; eating, hunting and sleeping with them and learning their language so that his howl is indistinguishable from theirs. Anybody who has been fortunate enough to see Shaun with the wolves could see the amazing bond that he has as well as the in depth knowledge of their world which is second to none. Shaun was raised in the Norfolk countryside, then trained by the British army. He spent several years with the Nez Perce tribe in Idaho and owes a lot of his education to the tribal people and the animals that he spent time with.
Kim Ellis grew up with many dogs and was always intrigued by their behaviour and how they learn. Kim trained as a veterinary nurse and spent her time learning different methods of dog training and different views on behaviour. Kim met Shaun and immediately found the "missing link" that she had been looking for. They have since set up the centre and have developed the natural approach to working with dogs using the in depth knowledge that the wolves have shared with them.
