Ongoing Support

Support is available throughout the rehabilitation process, and beyond. I’ll help you stay on track no matter what ups and downs come at you as you navigate the three stages of the learning process with your dog. In particular, I’ll get you through the testing phase, which is the most challenging part, and often causes people to think their training plans are not working!

Caroline was great with my dog Riley, who was reactive on the lead. Although he still is slightly reactive, the difference... from day 1 to now is amazing. Caroline gave me the tools, tips and tricks to be able to help Riley on the lead. Riley is much more relaxed, as am I! It makes such a difference when you understand what to do in certain situations and what to look out for instead of the panic I used to face!Thanks Caroline! 🙂read more

Caroline has been a God-send. She both gave me tools to help with dog behaviour issues that needed tweaking, and she gave me... knowledge, skills and confidence to live well with my lovely dog. In practical terms, I am a pensioner facing the cost of living crisis etc, and I think Caroline's professional expertise, kindness and professional skill are simply priceless.read more

Caroline was calm, patient, and supportive when we invited her to help with our spaniel’s recall and absconding problem. The... initial consultation helped us - owners and dog - with basic recall skills. The follow up session then moved us to a more advanced level using verbal and signal commands. We are enjoying beach and forest walks again, our dog is happy, and she is now calm during on lead walking - an added bonus. A professional service, and good value for money. Thanks!read more

Caroline is amazing with dogs, but she's even better training their owners. We have attended individual training and pack... walks and feel empowered to manage our dogs and have fun with them. She has helped with our Pomeranian gaining confidence with other dogs after she was attacked. She also helped us introduce a boisterous, active rescue puppy to our older rescue who finds it difficult to accept new dogs. Thanks to her calm, positive training we have 3 happy dogs who coexist well. I cannot rate her highly enough as we would have been lost without her.Thank you for training us humans well.read more

I was a bit nervous about having a trainer working with my dogs Charlie and Luna but within minutes of meeting Caroline all... my worries disappeared.Both my dogs have different issues and Caroline helped me go from dreading taking them out to feeling more confident after one session and the difference in my babies is already starting to show. I honestly can’t believe the difference already, can’t wait to put everything into practice and looking forward to our next session ?read more

Some extra FAQs for you…

What kind of behaviour and training problems can you solve?

I can help you with all kinds of canine behavioural problem including hyperactive behaviour, lead pulling, recall problems, aggressive behaviour, reactive dog behaviour, jumping up, mouthing, house training, separation anxiety, and all in between! I’m a rescue dog specialist, so can help you even if you don’t know anything about the dog’s history, or behaviour.

Do you offer support between sessions?

Yes, of course. I’m only ever an email away if you get stuck or have questions.

I feel like I’ve tried everything, can you still help?

Yes, definitely. I love figuring out complex and unusual dog behaviour problems. I tend to focus on gently balancing emotion first, then tackling specific behaviours second, which makes a huge difference when working with dogs that “cookie cutter” training doesn’t work for.

Do you come to me?

Yes, I’ll come to you to do an assessment first. We’ll meet at your home so I can get to know your dog and his behaviour there, and then we’ll go for a walk together. After that we’ll plan where best to do our training sessions. Most of the time I’ll meet you at home, but we could arrange to meet at a park, or somewhere else, whatever makes the most sense!

What areas do you cover?

Private Dog Behaviour Consultations are currently available in the Dundee, Broughty Ferry, Monifieth, Newport, and Tayport area, and as far as Carnoustie and Forfar.

Will I need more than one session?

The dog behaviour training process is different for everyone, but I’ll start off by coming to you for an assessment session. Your dog will behave more “normally” in their own environment, and I’ll get a better sense of them, and what they are trying to achieve with their behaviour. Then over a series of private training sessions (two is the average) we’ll work through all your dogs behavioural challenges together.

When can you fit me in?

Sessions are available throughout the week, and on Sundays. Normally, I have spaces available for new client assessments at around 1-2 weeks notice. Follow-up training sessions are usually scheduled at around 2-3 week intervals to give you plenty of time to practise between sessions.

Will your techniques work in real life situations? My dog listens when it’s just us, but as soon as he gets distracted it all goes out the window!

Yes, of course. It’s very common for dogs to know all the tricks when they are in a quiet place, but due to anxiety, reactivity, OCD, or just being easily distracted, they can’t do them in “real life”. Doing it in a class or distraction free environment might be useful to get things started, but when the environment is the problem, we need to get out and about to make the training work for you there too.

Will I always be working 1-1 with you?

Yes, of course. I don’t pay training staff so you’ll get consistent training from me, and ONLY me, from start to finish.

I’m not local to Dundee, can you help me via Zoom?

Yes, no problem, I offer a few services online, including private sessions, courses, and workshops. Click here to get more information from my online services website.
