Raechel’s love of animals began as a child as many others do. She grew up in a home with a mother who loved animals and instilled that in her. She began working as a kennel assistant as soon as she was old enough to work.
She began work as a veterinary technician in 1999, working her way up to assistant manager. After doing years of work in the veterinary field she decided to switch careers and begin dog training. She graduated from Greater Phoenix Dog Training Academy in November of 2001 and afterwards worked for Animal Attitudes Dog Training from 2004-2006. She has had the honor of working under some great trainers such as Tawni McBee, Bob Dolan and Michael/Bart Bellon. Raechel is passionate about every aspect of canine care and training and work together with you to provide a training experience that is exceptional and successful.
She started her own business, Desert Winds Dog Training, offering training to the greater Phoenix area in 2007. She shares her life with a 7-year-old APBT, Gracie, along with 6 children and 5 grandchildren.
