Sprocker Dog Behaviourists

We have three fabulous behaviourists, Lisa, Amanda and Caroline who are involved with most of our rehoming cases in some way.

Our experts are there for behaviourist support in many ways.  We ask that basic obedience and training is dealt with by the adopters.

Lisa, Amanda or Caroline will step in and help with behaviourist advice when needed. This can be done over the phone, depending on the issues. Any aggression is only ever dealt with in-person – never over the phone. If either live within travelling distance, we will sort a visit and support. If this is not possible, then we will pay for a local fully qualified behaviourist to assist.

Our expert’s advice can be as little or as much as needed – they can be involved in just one phone call, but also still involved in some complex cases many years later.

If you have a requirement for behaviour problems for dogs not re-homed through Sprocker Assist and Rescue, either would be delighted to chat to you.  You can contact directly via their contact details below.

Behaviour Expert

Caroline has been around dogs all of her life, growing up with Labradors and Springer Spaniels, also going on to share her own life with them.  

She currently has a deaf cross breed called Morris, who is huge part of her passion for all deaf and deaf/blind dogs. 

Caroline has over 15 years experience within rescue centres, working with all problems. She is a fully qualified dog behaviourist, also working with vet referrals. She has completed additional studies on adolescent dogs, aggression, giardia and behaviour, separation anxiety and trauma in dogs. 

Caroline insists that no dog is naughty. All behaviour is communication, and we need to understand what they are trying to tell us so that we can help them. 

Dogs with complex issues, trauma, past abuse, puppy farmed, long term rescue are what Caroline spends a lot of time working with. And now, she also spends a lot of time helping support XL Bully Type owners. 

Caroline’s website is currently under conatruction so you can contact her through social media.
