In-House Nutrition Specialists
At Frank & Jellys we belive that diet is the corner stone for the foundation of health for every dog.
We see so many dogs with challenges relating to skin, allergies and food. We recognise that each and every dog is different and that this includes what they eat which many dogs owners can find extremely overwhelming a with conflicting information and opinions.
Whilst we do offer a number of regular free trainings on our social media on feeding and nutrition we do also offer the opportunity for a limited number of dog owners to work with our inhouse qualified pet nutrionist every month to develop a bespoke and personalised plan to help their dogs thrive and live their best lives .
Meet Caroline Griffith – Pet Industry Nutrition Consultant
Hi, I’m Caroline and I’m a qualified Nutritional Therapist and Pet Industry Nutrition Consultant with 25 years experience in the pet industry working for both start-up and large international pet food companies.
I specialise in all types of pet food and I am proud to have been creating real, fresh food diets for a wide variety of dog breeds and ages since 1995.
My hearts work is to make the vast choice of pet foods and varied opinions easy to understand and navigate through. Cutting out the confusion so you can discern what it right for your dog as an individual.
I am the proud author of two books including my most recent book being : The Best Dog Diet (2020) which is available on the Frank and Jellys shop as an ebook and I regularly lead seminars and even holistic retreats for dogs and their human friends.
I am based in Suffolk with my rescue dog, Foosa, who is a tripawd and benefits from the nourishment fresh and human food (both home-cooked and raw) provides.
My specialist subject is how the dogs body works holistically, sharing that the elements that make up food – such as enzymes or microbiome are just as important as the molecular nutrition itself, yet rarely taken into consideration.
I am a regular feature on Frank & Jellys social media delivering free trainings about fresh and human foods and the benefits these can have on our dogs and their overall health.
I also produce blogs which you can find here that I hope will help you will educate you all on having the healthiest possible dog you can, starting with a truly nutritious diet.
I offer a limited number of 1-2-1 and bespoke nutrition consultations for owners who require personal support for their dogs.

Meet Chantal Karyta- Training & Behaviourist and Sports Expert
Hi, I’m Chantal and I have been dog training since 2008. I set up my dog training and behaviour company in Surrey in 2010. I have a BSc. (Hons) in Psychology, a COAPE diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour and am a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers.
I runs variety of training classes ranging from puppy and adult dog life skills classes to agility, tricks, scentwork, flyball, gundog and hoopers as well as workshops on specific behaviours such as recall, not jumping up and loose lead walking.
I also conduct private lessons and behaviour consultations either in the client’s home, out on a walk or remotely via Skype. In fact, this was how I met Sarah, the owner of Frank & Jelly’s when I was called in to help her train Frank her first bulldog! 🙂 way back in 2015
I currently own 5 dogs – Honey my little rescue Papillon who is now nearly 14 and blind and deaf, Spice, Savannah and Splash – my Shelties ranging in age from five to ten years old, and Spirit a one year old Border Collie.
I have a huge interest in dog behaviour and love to work with
clients to help deal with behaviours such as dog-dog and dog-human aggression, resource guarding and separation-related disorders.
I have experience dealing with all breeds and ages. When working with unwanted dog behaviours, I take into account the dog’s overall lifestyle and emotional well being, rather than just the problematic behaviour.
By making sure all your dog’s physical, mental and dietary needs are met – changing these alone can have a massive impact on improving your dog’s behaviour. All my methods are positive and reward-based.
I also love to work with puppies and older rescue dogs to teach the foundations of training, especially with first-time dog owners.
I have a particular love of working dogs in sports – to me, it is so important that dogs have jobs to do that they love, whether it is agility, tricks, flyball, scentwork, working trials, obedience or hoopers. It helps to mentally tire them out and is a great way to really bond with your dog. I see a huge decline in problem behaviours when dogs have regular training.
I personally do agility with my dogs and have competed with all my Shelties at Crufts for 5 consecutive years, represented England in the World Agility Open, and Great Britain in the Agility World Championships. As I am currently located in South Africa, I will be representing them in the World Agility Open this year.
You can also find my on the Frank & Jellys social media with Training Trick Tuesdays where I posted free video tutorials of some fun and useful tricks to do with your dog.
I am also now available for Skype training sessions for any kind of training and behaviour problem. If you would like to book in for a 1-2-1 training or behavioural consultation please do not hesitate to contact me by filling in the form below
