From puppy education to fearful or reactive dogs, Rachel has the experience and passion to support families to manage, overcome or re-educate with mindfulness and solution focused outcomes. Rachel is a proud member of the association of INTODOGS training and behaviour guild where she has been appointed a member of the ethics board. Rachel believes in force free and reward based training methods with an animal centred approach.
Rachel has a particular passion for body language analysis and observations. With over 15 years dog training experience and 15 years veterinary nursing experience, from small animal practice to large animal, including zoo animals, she has a keen eye for potential posture or pain related problems when working closely in assessing dogs.

Everything from talented trainers, behaviourists, animal practitioners, to nutritionists and physiotherapists are included in her daily case management should the family in question need it.

PUPPY START RIGHT!!
This is for all the family and your new puppy. We cover all the important things to get you off to the right start with your puppy, giving you some solid learning foundation on how our dogs learn.
ONE to ONE Behaviour Consultations
If you have a specific training or behavioural issue with your dog then perhaps working one on one is the thing for you. Some dogs may be too nervous to work as part of a team.
Keep an eye on the Facebook page for workshops that will be coming up throughout the year for all ages and abilities. Small groups ensure individual attention.
Assisted Dog walking
Do you ever wonder what's going on in your dog's mind whilst on a walk? When they meet other dogs, how are they feeling? Is your dog anxious around other dogs? Or does they come on too strong or over friendly? Why not have a trainer come on a walk with you and your dog and discover the secret world of canine body language. Discover many ways to manage difficult behaviours whilst out on a walk or ways to have more fun for you and your dog.
Sometimes your busy schedules prevent follow up appointments face to face. Or sometimes clients may have moved locations. If this is you, then this service is perfect.
