Welcome to Brown Dog Training
I’m Rachel Brown and I founded Brown Dog Training in 2017. My background is in sports dogs, and I’ve been training dogs for over 25 years. I’ve helped countless dogs and their owners with different problems from basic training to behavioural issues.
I'm dedicated to running effective, enjoyable training classes, 1-to-1 training sessions and workshops. My goal is for you and your dog to have fun while learning new skills.
My training journey started in the 1990’s with a particularly troublesome Akita called Dino who chewed through all my carpets, a sofa and eventually the gas mains (thankfully no one was hurt!). This led me into the fascinating world of canine behaviour.
I regularly attend courses and seminars to keep my knowledge up to date and I am a fully qualified member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and an EpicDog Training Academy Affiliate Trainer. I'm also accredited to teach Scentwork UK and UK Sniffer Dogs classes as well as the Pet Professional Guild's Pet Dog Ambassador classes.
My small class sizes allow you the chance to train your dog in a controlled environment around distractions while still receiving lots of 1-to-1 coaching.
Puppy classes, foundation skills classes for your new rescue dog, refresher training for your tearaway teens, advanced training for your bright spark or try something new and exciting like tricks, scent detection, flyball, rally or parkour.
In my 1-to-1 sessions I will work with you to tailor a training plan for you and your dog to help you achieve your personal goals.
From walking nicely on a lead and coming when you call them, to stopping annoying behaviours like jumping up, chewing or attention-seeking.
Are you concerned about your dog's behaviour?
Are you struggling to control them?
Are walks a nightmare?
Does your dog drive you mad at home?
I will tailor a treatment plan specifically for your dog and your family to enable you to reach your goals and have a great relationship with your dog.
