About Me

Hey - I'm Rebecca, East London Dog Training founder and dog trainer, and I *barking* love dogs.

Growing up with two beautiful rescues, my love for dogs started young, but I found my love of training just a few years ago when I met Alba the Boston terrier - an ex-breeding dog essentially starting life from scratch. Supporting her emotional and mental development, helping her come into her own personality, and slowly desensitising her to what felt like everything was a rollercoaster of learning and helped me understand the ways dog behaviour can be misunderstood and how this shows up as part of the training process.

I've worked in the wine industry, at a tech start-up and for a homelessness charity, but I'm a dog trainer today because nothing compares to the experience of supporting, nurturing and training dogs. I've swapped stakeholders for stick holders and I'm growing every day with each dog I have the privilege to train!

I am a fully accredited member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and I adhere to the IMDT Code of Ethics. Animal welfare is at the heart of everything I do, and I meet all dogs with kindness, empathy, and joy - whatever their story.
