Caroline is the founder of Help at Hand Dog Behaviour, and Deaf Not Difficult. A Full Member of the Pet Dog Trainers of Europe, International Companion Animal Network and the Dog Welfare Alliance. All meaning she is passionate about ethical force free methods, whilst ensuring standards are high for the welfare of dogs.
She has always been around dogs, rescuing her first dog when she was 12 years old. Her two dogs – Molly, a Labrador Retriever and Morris a rescue, who is deaf are her inspirations to be the best she can be.
Always wanting to fully understand dogs, and work in a force free way, led her to train with Sheila Harper and then Turid Rugaas to ensure she works at the deepest level possible. Her quest for the most up to date methods, fully backed with scientific research, means she only learns from likeminded people, including many elements of cpd with Dr Amber Batson.
Whilst Caroline works with all dogs of all ages, she is known for the work she does in and around rescue centres advising on rehabilitation, behaviour, rehoming and always ensuring dogs are understood including those displaying complex behaviours. Combined with a huge passion for deaf dogs, running courses in the UK and internationally to remove the misconceptions, and show how amazing they are.
