About Me

Rachael Yaw - ABCCDT

Since 2014 I have invested my life in learning current and research backed methods of top quality animal care and training. My years as a zookeeper, trainer, and veterinary assistant inform the way I work with owners and their pets to create a healthy home life. My methods are guided by LIMA (least invasive, minimally aversive) guidelines, and I utilize operant conditioning methods focused on positive reinforcement.


At Tails of Success KC I believe that owning a pet is an amazing and emotionally fulfilling experience, but also a responsibility, not a luxury. Training your pet properly will lead you to a greater understanding of your pet, and I firmly believe in the owner-pet relationship being one of mutual understanding and respect. My goal is to help provide solutions to problem behaviors, give you the tools to train your dog, and to help you build a trusting relationship. I find that owners end up learning as much, if not more, than their pets! Call to find out more about my unique approach to training.
