Here You Can Book Your Initial Consultation With Rachel For All Packages

Rachel is a provisional CAB and an ABTC registered Animal Training Instructor (ATI) and runs her own training business specialising in border collies as The Collie Consultant, having worked, trained and lived with collies, as well as other breeds, for over 35 years.  She has trained dogs for obedience, agility, and flyball and lives in Lincolnshire with her four collies, two of whom are trained to work her 23 pet sheep. 


Rachel recently completed an MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour and, having spent time volunteering in rescue organisations, is desperate to help keep dogs out of rescue by helping owners learn how to manage and improve their dog’s behaviour to ultimately strengthen their relationship with their dog.


Rachel recently also completed the Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) Professional course to become a KPA Certified Training Partner (CPT) and gets very excited about teaching any owners who would like to learn how to clicker train their dogs.  Her particular interests lie in dogs with repetitive behaviours, and working alongside owners and vets to improve the lives of owners and dogs that suffer from these compulsive disorders.  She is thrilled to be joining Danielle and her wonderful team at Control The Meerkat!
