“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen”

Orhan Pamuk

Whether she is working with clients and their dogs, writing articles and books, giving seminars and workshops, or broadcasting on radio or  visual media, Carolyn always has at her heart the desire to help people truly understand the dogs that share their lives

Relationship Building

Like our dogs, we learn best when we are relaxed, having fun and are enjoying ourselves. Throughout all her work, Carolyn aims to show owners just how enjoyable life with a dog can be, and helps owners and dogs discover the pleasure of the dog/owner bond

“You can’t change any behaviour unless you can change the emotion that drives that behaviour”

The majority of dog training is about teaching life skills to dogs – and showing people how to understand their dogs. Most people just want a well-behaved dog who fits into their life safely and happily – while dogs need an owner who understands them and what they are so often trying to tell them. It is through this understanding that we can prevent the majority of training and behaviour problems and this is what Carolyn is aiming for in all her work
