Rachel Gutierrez

Dog Trainer

My name is Rachel, and I teach dog training classes here at Pawsh. I also have my own dog training business doing in-home training. Before starting my business, I volunteered at two different animal shelters, worked at a boarding facility, assisted groomers, attended the Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers and shadowed other experienced trainers on the job. I’ve since supported rescue organizations by fostering dogs who need training before they can be adopted out and I’m also involved in a couple of dog sports.

I grew up with Akitas as the family pets and since then have owned various mixed-breeds. Two of the dogs I’ve owned were strays I took in off the street. My husband and I currently have a boxer mix named Jack who does agility and assists me in my dog training business.
Of course I love dogs, but I really like helping people too. It’s very rewarding for me to see how much I can improve someone’s life by helping them solve their dog’s behavior problems. I’m happy to be a part of the excellent team here at Pawsh and I’m looking forward to seeing you and your dog in one of my classes!
