Previous client reviews -

  • "So pleased with the work Rachel did yesterday with Bailey. Already only after 1 session walking much better and not pulling on the lead so much. Thank you Rachel for your tips on other issues looking forward to our next session next week."



  • "Rachel is very patient and gave us lots of training advice for our energetic Sproodle puppy! I would highly recommend."



  • "Rachel is so calm and good with the dogs, knows her stuff, and my little one loved her immediately. I have implemented her techniques from as soon as we had our girl and she is good as gold now at 6 months old. Definitely recommend Rachel."



  • "Rachel is amazing!! She has helped with our cockapoo Levi, he is improving every week with walking by my side and not barking at other dogs. She has made a massive improvement in just a few weeks."


  • "Rachel was recommended to us by a friend and we will 100% recommend further! Rachel travelled to us to help with our miniature dachshund and in just one session we have learned a list of simple tricks to help with dog reactivity on walks and manners in the home! Rachel is incredibly good at what she does and is patient with you whilst you learn throughout the session."


  • "Very professional. Would highly recommend, worked wonders with our boy. Rachel is extremely knowledgeable and offered plenty of advice."


  • "Rachel has been helping us with our troublesome chihuahua for a few weeks and has really pointed us in the right direction. She is super friendly, highly knowledgeable and i couldn't recommend her enough."
