Steve Austin is an Aussie larrikin – brash, no bulldust, but with a warm heart and the unique skill to tame the wildest dogs. When Steve Austin was just 13 he trained his black mutt ‘Sooty’ to entertain crowds outside the pub. This was when he realised he had a unique talent.
Steve was chosen to head the NSW Emergency Volunteer Canine Fire and Rescue Unit. This unit-the first of its kind in Australia will be deployed to help with recovery efforts during tsunamis, earthquakes, fires and floods.
Despite his typical Aussie larrikin nature or maybe because of it, Steve is often invited to lecture and help at zoos around the world. He’s also a regular at American Law Enforcement Agencies and was asked to train dogs in bomb detection at the Mount Everest Kennel Club in Kathmandu. Steve is a more of a steak and chips kind of guy but he trained the first ever truffle detector dogs. Pigs across France now hate Steve Austin!
One look at Steve’s list of qualifications and his C.V. will tell you this guy is the real deal, but when you meet him and watch him work you immediately realize that this man has a relationship with dogs that is truly special. He loves them and they love him and, it’s unconditional.
