About A Step Beyond

Hi, I’m Caroline. I started A Step Beyond in April 2010 and absolutely love my job!

Caroline Dog Walking Group of Dogs in Forest

I started my business to fit around a canine behaviour course and to gain some experience of different breeds during my studies. I received a Certificate of Higher Education in Canine Behaviour and Training from the University of Hull in March 2013 and decided to carry on with my business.

I share my home with my husband Graeme and our 7 dogs – Milo lurcher, Murphy collie, Mist collie, Lottie poodle, Jaff collie, Xander cocker and Woody poodle. We also have 2 Norwegian Forest cats called Freya and Mani and 4 ferrets called Monkey, Mac, Fizz and Fidget, as well as 3 fish tanks. Living with working breeds can be a daunting task and I know first hand what it is like to live with a highly intelligent dog with a work ethic that never stops.

I know how difficult it can be to balance work and family time with the needs of a pet. That’s where I can help. I can walk your dog on a daily basis or feed your cat while you are on holiday, to take some of the stress and worry out of being a pet owner.

This is Woody the standard poodle, Woody has his own BLOG all about his daily life and travels!

“Caroline is absolutely fabulous. She takes care of my pets as if they were her own with lots of TLC. She is also completely reliable and professional and keeps me updated with informative texts about my pets while I am away. I would recommend Caroline to anyone.”
