Hi, I’m Caroline Clark, a Registered Veterinary Nurse with over 30 years’ experience of working in small/mixed animal practice and a Qualified Animal Behaviourist, specialising in the diagnosis, treatment and management of behavioural problems in companion animals (cats, dogs, parrots, rabbits and small mammals).
I believe that a holistic approach is important so I work closely with owners to design a tailor made action plan to help modify, manage and hopefully resolve behaviour problems in their pets. I am very proud to state that I only use positive reinforcement methods and because of my combined practical and theoretical experience I am well placed to understand the basis for most problem behaviours.
My other specialism is in Pet First Aid training. As an experienced registered veterinary nurse I am uniquely placed for teaching and training pet professionals and owners how to recognize and deal with a range of emergency situations. My hosted and online courses are accredited with the Continuing Professional Development Office which means it has been validated by an independent body.

These courses are suitable for veterinary surgeons and nurses, trainers and those working with pets in a professional capacity. Some may be suitable for pet owners too.
