Your CONNECTICUT Dog Trainers!


I have always had a passion for working with dogs. I started training professionally straight out of high school and have worked privately as well with multiple animal shelters, rescues and PetSmart. I have worked with Off Leash K9 Training for the past five years, and additionally offer boarding and grooming services as needed. As a certified trainer I take extreme pride in the work I do with each and every dog. It is gratifying to me to assist a client in becoming more proficient with their dog’s obedience and ultimately providing a better quality of life not just for the dog but for the client as well!


Rachel grew up in Connecticut and currently lives in Branford. She previously worked as a Behavior Analyst, working with children and adults with special needs. She transitioned to dog training and began working for Off Leash K9 Training in 2018, and she absolutely loves it! Her favorite part of training is teaching dogs, and their owners, skills that allow them to have a happy and confident life together, and she has a special interest in service dogs. She has a mixed breed dog, TJ, who loves helping with training and hiking all of the beautiful Connecticut parks and beaches.


Before beginning my work with Off Leash K9 Training in 2015, I worked eight years in the pet industry, including professional roles as a manager in a veterinarian’s office. My experience with different breeds of all types, temperaments and behaviors groomed me for a career with OLK9. I have been training with OLK9 since they opened their first Northeastern location in upstate NY in 2014! At home, I have two children and a Bull Mastiff who help me socialize, distract and work the dogs that are in training. I am thrilled with and enjoy the ongoing opportunity to work with dogs and their owners!
