Rachel Williams, CDT, CGC Evaluator
Rachel Williams is the owner of The DogSmith of Palm Beach County who has earned a remarkable and well deserved reputation for providing exceptional customer service tailored to all of your dog training and pet care needs. The many fantastic features of Rachel’s service starts with her DogSmith home which is located on 2 acres, in a rural setting convenient to I-95 and Turnpike access and only minutes away from Abacoa, Roger Dean Stadium, Scripps Research Institute and the Gardens Mall.
Rachel’s facility features a large, fully fenced and landscaped grassy training and play field giving your best friend room to romp and run. She also offers a separate, fenced outside ‘VIP’ section for your older pet who may want some ‘alone time’ or if your younger pal is not ready for the more athletic play area. Of course there is plenty of air-conditioned play, nap and training space inside. Rachel even has a swimming pool for training, therapy and supervised water play sessions.
Rachel’s many years of experience training and caring for family pets like yours and her impressive pet industry credentials make her the ideal trainer and home-away-from home for your pet. Her many credentials include DogSmith Training and Pet Care Certifications (including rigorous academic and practical training in dog communication, learning theory and pet first aid). Never one to rest on her past accomplishments, Rachel maintains her professional expertise through a series of continuing education programs including courses on resource guarding, clicker training small animals, teaching kids how to be safe around dogs and many, many others.
In addition to Rachel’s training and pet care certifications she is also a licensed presenter in ‘Fun Scent Games’, Dogs & Storks, Dogs & Baby and Doggone Safe. And if you’re looking to start your own trophy shelf for your furry buddy, Rachel is an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator so she has everything you need to get your pooch its ‘good citizen badge’.
Even with the many demands of her business making sure your precious family pets are receiving the absolute best training and care available, Rachel finds time for her “perfect Labrador”, Chloe, a Sporting Labrador Retriever. Chloe has achieved her Senior AKC Hunt Test Title. She has since retired from the sport and is enjoying her life on the DogSmith premises.
