Rachael has always been passionate about animals and following a degree in Equine Management, she took up a career training horses and dogs. With her own business, D.A.T.A (Devon Animal Training Academy) she now has over 20 years of training under her belt. Together with her ponies and “The CrackerJacks “ comprising Jack Russell Terriers Jack, Jessica and Jacob, Rachael enjoys thrilling audiences at shows and charity events. Two time winners of the “Most Talented” category of SuperDogs Live at the National Pet Shows, they have also appeared on many TV shows including That Dog Can Dance, The Alan Titchmarsh Show and Who Let The Dogs Out. Jack Russell’s are notoriously hard to train but Rachael’s team have a vast repertoire of tricks including barrel rolling, skateboarding and skipping! Talking of which, Rachael and Jessica have just been awarded with a Guinness World Record for the most skips by a dog and person – an incredible 59 skips in one minute! With positive training by Rachael, the terriers demonstrate what is possible with patience, kindness and an understanding with mankind’s best friend.
