How it began

As a teen, Rachel realized her passion for working with animals. She volunteered for wildlife rehabilitation centers, caring for and training husbandry behaviors to a variety of exotic species. 

She decided to pursue her passion for working with dogs, managing a large dog walking company in Washington, DC, before moving to Bethesda and starting her own dog walking business. 

Wishing to further her education, she began studying dog training and behavior, which led to the start of Rollins Family Dog Training. We look forward to helping you have a great family dog.
