"We thought our wild man was going to be a challenge to train, but after several sessions with Rachel, we are shocked at how quickly he has learned and retained his new skills. Our Goldendoodle, Sully, is a big boy with lots and lots of juvenile energy.
He loves to run (away), give energetic hugs (jump), and has a healthy appetite (for the baby's pacifiers). In just one session we noticed a difference in his attention span and eagerness to learn. It's still a work in progress, but the techniques Rachel taught us are things we can work on daily with him.
He still gets excited when meeting new friends (any person or animal that glances in his direction), but he channels his energy through tail wagging and bunny hopping. Thank you Rachel, for being patient with our Sullivan."

"Rachel is great! We had a few sessions with her about a year ago. Our little doggy is a timid pup and I wanted him to be able to be less scared of the world.
Interestingly, most of the training was geared towards us not our pup! Just knowing how to present situations to him without overwhelming him has been so helpful and seems to make him a happier pup.
We're expecting our first baby soon, and Rachel has done a pre write up of tips and things to get our pup as prepared as possible in advance. We also plan to do another session or two soon after we bring our baby home, to help us start that relationship off on the right foot.
