About Caroline

The first thing you should know about me is that I am obsessed with dogs. If they did a scan of my brain, it would be in the shape of one. I love all animals, but dogs are my thing. I have three of my own, two Westies and a border collie, and hope to get a working cocker soon. I have had a dog my whole life, the longest I have gone without a dog is 3 months. I am a firm believer that a bond between a dog and its person is such a blessing, one I believe should be treasured. I believe in trust and respect.
My road to becoming a dog trainer wasn’t really something I thought I could do, I have always wanted to work with animals from a young age but I didn’t like blood so didn’t go down the vet route. Plus the way dogs were trained wasn’t something I liked or believed in, it used to come from a place of fear rather than love and trust. (Thankfully we have come a long way since those days, although sadly there are still places and people that train like that.)

It was in 2016 that I finally decided to take the leap into the Dog Training world, it was my time as a dog walker that really pushed me down that road. I wanted to understand their behavior and body language more, I wanted to help support my solo-walking dogs and understand reactive dogs. I spent a lot of time researching and attending a number of classes to see what fit my beliefs, which started my journey with Gwen Baileys Puppy School.

Class Information

My Classes mainly run on a Saturday morning in Erith. I run two classes back to back. I am currently looking for a new venue so I can start running evenings again.
Classes are fun and friendly and most important a safe space. Children over the age of 5 are welcome as I feel its important for children to build a bond with their dog. When joining I like to add you to a whatsapp group for additional support during your time with me.
