Care And Reward Assisted Training & Behaviourist


About Us

Autumnís Green & Gold's!






Chrissy and Barry Gough have run Cara Dog Training personally since 2001.


Prior to that Chrissy had been training since 1990, (including Competition Work) with both the Amersham and Chesham Dog Training Clubs in Buckinghamshire before moving here to the New Forest in 1999.


Chrissy is a Member of the Institute for Animal Care Education (MIACE)† having obtained a Distinction in her Coursework and Assessments. She has also undertaken a Canine Psychology Course.


We are both Association of Pet Dog Trainer Members (APDT 653 & 893) and Barry is an Academy of Dog Training Behaviour (ADTB) Gold Level Instructor


We are owned by two Labradors named Crunchy our† 9 year old and Summer who is 6. They both came from Poolehall Labradors, wonderful breeders in Shropshire who specialises in breeding Guide Dogs for the Blind and Companion Dogs as well as lovely pet Labradors. Our dogs are great fun to have around and such good buddies for each other.


Naturally we recommend Poolehall Labradors highly as breeders and many former clients have trained their Poolehall pups with us in the past.



Below are just a couple of seasonal pictures illustrating just how fortunate we are to be here in the New Forest.
