Her training methods are science-based, humane and proven to work. She has over a decade of experience training and managing groups of dogs on off leash hikes. Emily’s training is based on the idea that our beloved dogs deserve science, enrichment and full lives that allow them to feel safe and to be dogs. The results are happy dogs and happy clients! Training should be a team activity that is fun for everyone! She is results-oriented, relationship-focused and tailors specific plans based on each team’s specific goals and capabilities.
