Emily and Roz first met when Roz helped with her family dog’s behaviour. Roz has a fond memory of the time they all did a tracking session together and Poppy tracked Emily and her sister who had run and hid in a hedge (for Poppy to find I might add!)
Two years later, Emily then came on board as a dog walker for Roz and shadowed the puppy classes to learn more while studying for her degree. Eventually she was snapped up by The Dogs Trust. Roz was thrilled when Emily reached out during Covid and immediatly offered her the opportunity to work as a puppy class head coach and 1-2-1 trainer.

Dogs Trust Dog School Bristol volunteer
Senior coach for Dogs Trust Dog School Devon (puppy, adolescent and adult classes and 121’s)
During this time Emily attended the 2 day Dogs Trust conference 2019 and received extensive training from the Dogs Trust via Rachel Kitson.
“Emily was fab! We’ve been struggling with a few things for weeks, and however much online research we did, we couldn’t seem to solve the problem. Emily’s patience and consistency with the training was incredible and set us a great example to learn from. She gave us some really simple clever tricks and new ways of training Bailey our cockerpoo, which really helped. It was wonderful to see such an improvement in just a 1-hour training session. Thank you so much!” Amanda Callans
