Whitchurch dog trainer wins award for work with pets
Rachel Rodgers, who lives on the outskirts of Whitchurch, was named Best Dog Trainer and Behaviorist (North West).
The 32-year-old who runs her own business, Nose To Trail, has been honored with LUXlife magazine’s Pet Product & Services Awards.
Rachel has previously been named Dog Trainer of the Year 2020 – 2022 at the North England Prestige Awards and Clinical Animal Behaviorist of the Year 2021 at the Small Business Awards.
LUXlife launched the Pet Products and Services Awards several years ago and this year wanted to recognize those who have thrived despite uncertainty, grown despite overwhelming odds and capitalized on every opportunity.
For Nose to Trail, this involved Rachel’s range of high-quality online training courses, “No Nonsense Nosework” and “Let’s Get Sniffy”.
Although she specializes in supporting dogs with established behavioral issues, such as separation anxiety and aggression, Rachel also offers online scent work classes that have been so popular that people followed from as far away as the Netherlands and Sweden.
Rachel said: “Scent work is a rapidly growing part of the canine industry.
“By hosting my online classes for small groups and individuals, owners can participate in their other commitments without having to travel to a location. It also allows dogs of any age, breed or temperament to participate, which many of my clients enjoy because their dog may bark if they were to come face to face with unfamiliar dogs and people in a strange place.We have all the fun without any worries.
Awards Coordinator Emma Pridmore said, “It’s a pleasure for me to be able to offer you my sincere congratulations and best wishes for the rest of the year.”
Rachel hopes Nose to Trail will continue with this success after finding out she’s also been nominated for the National Animal Star Awards, an awards ceremony she knows well for winning the Dog Trainer & Behaviorist of the year category at the inaugural ceremony in 2018. .
