Our Happy Clients

"Rachel and the team are amazing. We have an almost 6-month puppy who has been doing virtual zoom training with Rachael since he was 3 months. The team are extremely helpful, responsive and our pup has come on leaps and bounds because of the training. We honestly don’t know where we would’ve been without Rachel’s help. So grateful to The Haven Dog Centre."
