Trainers' profiles

Rachel completed her Master’s degree in Applied Animal Behaviour and Welfare at Newcastle University whilst managing a rescue and rehoming centre. For the last 3 years she has worked as a University lecturer specialising in Canine Behaviour and Training.


Outside of work she spends her time with her Portuguese rescue dog Rico and her therapy dog Maisy.

Beth McDonald

Beth has always had a strong passion for working with animals and has completed a degree in Animal Science, which focused mainly on animal behaviour and welfare.  Since her degree, she has worked in veterinary practices, rescue centres and as an animal keeper.  As an animal keeper, Beth’s love for animal training grew stronger and she found herself training a pack of hybrid wolves, with which she worked very closely - she still goes to visit them on a regular basis!  Since working with the wolves, Beth has developed a strong interest in canine behaviour and enjoys helping owners understand and develop a life-long bond with their dogs.


Beth started out at Dog School Shropshire in October 2017 as their Coach.  With determination, she has earnt a position as Senior Coach.  Beth loves nothing more than coaching and making dog training fun and enjoyable.


Outside of work, you can find Beth enjoying walks around North Wales with her partner’s dogs, Angus (a Newfoundland crossbreed) and Minnow (a Miniature Schnauzer crossbreed).  Beth dreams of the day she will have a Siberian Husky called Harold!


Lisa Hough

Lisa has always had an ambition to work with animals and is currently working towards a Diploma in Canine Care, Welfare and Behaviour. Lisa has worked within a boarding kennels environment since a young age, working with a variety of breeds and temperaments, which has fuelled her passion towards dog training after working alongside a trainer and gaining an abundance of knowledge and experience. 

Outside of work Lisa can be found spending time with her two dogs; Hugo a Bichon Frise and Szep a Hungarian Visza. She enjoys taking them for long country walks in the local Shropshire countryside.
