Hi, I’m Carri,
Together, we tackle training and behaviour challenges.
I love nothing better than seeing obstacles overcome and relationships improved.
Let me tell you about how it started…
I appreciated her loyalty, admired her intelligence and enjoyed her spontaneous ability to have fun!
This relationship fuelled my desire to have a career working with dogs.
From a young age, I’ve always wanted to work with dogs
At the age of 14 I took my first job in the world of dog grooming.
My first shift ended with a tetanus shot, following a bite from a miniature poodle who clearly enjoyed his bath even less than I did.
The pain was temporary, the wound soon healed, but it was the start of a lasting motivation to understand more about dogs and their behaviour. I knew that I needed to help dogs like this.
I took it upon myself to make each experience for every dog a positive one
My passion has taken me to many exciting places; from working as a canine au pair across Europe to training assistance dogs in Australia.
I also gained experience in many new and exciting areas, such as dog sports, herding, tracking and hydrotherapy, which helped me to develop a range of skills and approaches to really understand how unique every situation can be.
After graduating with a BSC (Hons), in Canine Behaviour and Training, and following the arrival of my own young family – ‘Wild Heart Dogs’ was born; helping families, just like yours, to tackle the challenges with your own dog and improving the connection and relationship you already have.
I offer honest advice and I am clear in the direction you will need to take. By taking a holistic, integrative approach, we will achieve real results – developed over time.
There are no quick fixes, but I am here to support you on your journey together.
Established back in 2015 our methods improve the relationship and connection between you and your dog by “Taking a holistic integrative approach”
