“We’ve had a fab 6 weeks and I have been trained as much as my pup! Thank you, Caroline." – Den
Hi, I’m Caroline! As an experienced dog trainer, I believe that kindness, patience and understanding are an integral foundation for a happy, healthy dog. It is a privilege to share our lives with our canine companions, mine is shared with a full-of-life spaniel and a laidback labrador.
At Daisy Dog Training, we are dedicated to finding solutions for behavioural issues and developing communications between you and your dog. My years of experience with dogs includes:
Working with dogs of all breeds, ages, and behaviours, I have found that the most effective training solutions are modern, science-based methods, grounded in reward-based positive reinforcement. Constantly improving my dog training skills, I regularly attend training courses, workshops, and seminars held by leading animal scientists and expert dog trainers.

Daisy taught me that I selected the perfect breed for me, she was very active and a quick learner, the perfect partnership. She was house trained using kind, force-free reward training, and loved a ball over every other distraction. Daisy had a great recall and a trusting relationship with me within a few weeks. We shared life and explored new places together and had an amazing relationship.
I thought I knew it all, but I didn’t! By the age of two she had become reactive towards most other dogs. A trip to the vets proved nothing medical was causing the behaviour, so my research started to find a behavioural solution.
She taught me the methods that helped her cope with life in the presence of other unfamiliar dogs. She taught me the subtleties of dog body language so I can now try and predict whether she wants to say hello to other dogs, if she can tolerate their presence or she simply wants to move away and enjoy her own space.
Archie was an 18 month old adolescent boy when we brought him home. He taught me patience. All the toys were his - all at once! A lot were swallowed resulting in several vet visits. We learned to play swap, and in time he could give up toys and not swallow them, safe in the knowledge that he would get them back after dropping them
He is a sensitive timid boy and needs to make his own decisions in his own time to let his confidence build. He taught me to ask for his consent for petting and handling and he now approaches me and asks for and enjoys affection. Any loud noises in the house and he is off to a quiet room, using his flight option when worry sets in. A tight body wrap/vest helped him with feeling safe in new busy environments. He lets me know if things are getting too much for him and he taught me to read dog body language so I could help move him away from situations where he is uncomfortable.
