About us

I’m Emma Taylor and I offer fun, practical dog training and support.

I’ll work with you and support you to help you master the skills you need to help your dog live a happy life as part of the family – our aim is the perfect ‘pub dog’ who’s happy to go anywhere and take life in the real world as it comes.

I teach owners to use ethical, positive and reward-based training methods, but I know that one size does not fit all when it comes to dogs, or their owners. I look at the big picture and find the solutions that will work best for you and your dog. Even in group training, I keep class sizes small, so the approach can still be tailored to each individual dog and their owner.

Rat Pack Dog Services is named after my own pack of terriers. It was because of one of my dogs, Bertie, and his reactivity issues that I first became interested in the dog training world.  I sought help from several trainers and eventually found what worked best for us. I haven’t looked back since! 

As I have experienced owning challenging dogs myself, I know what a lonely place that can be and how valuable it is to have judgement-free support.

I have a wide-range of experience with a variety of breeds and behaviours, group dynamics and class environments.
