A lifelong dog-lover, Caroline found her calling working with animals following an early career in naturopathy and catering.

Everything a dog does is for a reason. It is so exciting to see the lightbulb moment when pet and owner finally understand each other and start to grow together.” – Caroline Depledge

“When Caroline arrives the dogs she is taking for a walk pick up their ears and turn in twisty circles when they hear her voice. Yes,! The high point of the day. She has helped me for more than a decade with dog walking and puppy training.

The Dog Sessions have been our go to for dog walking, as well as training advice, for a number of years. Their service is second to none, and the only down side is our dog loves going walking with them versus spending time with us! They are 100% reliable, trustworthy and experts in their field.

“ We and I are very impressed with the way you run your puppy school.  It is lots of fun and extremely educational.   Whilst we have been a bit slack in training , will keep applying the excellent techniques you have shown us.  We recognise a well trained dog is an additional joy to just having a dog.
Thank you.”
