Caroline Clarke

about us - caz
Caroline owns Canine Education and over 17 years experience of training dogs professionally. She instructs all Puppy, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced courses in our Thatcham and Newbury locations.  In addition she offers one to one private tuition and behaviour consultations in West Berkshire and North Hampshire.

She has a wealth of experience in training and behaviour and is continually adding to her knowledge to ensure that she and all who work with her, provide the best care and training methods possible.  She says; “We strive to promote the training of dogs that is kind, reward based and allows dogs to be dogs, with personality and spirit.  Whilst dogs need boundaries and good manners, it is not necessary to achieve this through fear and harsh punitive methods.  Our dogs deserve better!”

Working Springer Spaniels are her passion having spent her entire life with them and she enjoys beating at shoots with her Springers Bailey, Murphy and Guinness.  She lives with her husband, two young children and six working gundogs that are also much loved family pets.

Caroline is qualified, and approved by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (01031) and a registered practitioner of the Animal Behaviour & Training Council.
