Thank you Caroline for running this programme, you have helped me more than I can say! I have completed a lot of training within my field and I can honestly say that having the opportunity to spend time with Caroline, learn from her experience and just have an honest and open chat has been the best money I have spent. I have gained so much value from the programme and I’m sad it’s finished! Highly recommend for anyone who is looking to increase their experience in canine behaviour, either already practicing or currently undertaking study. You will gain so much value from doing this programme.
