A bit more about Emma

Emma is trained in dog behaviour and has experience training and walking many different breeds including Miniature Yorkies, Terriers, Papillons, Japanese spitz, Rottweilers, Bulldogs, Dobermans and many more.

“The first dog I trained to walk properly on a lead was a Rottweiler that weighed more than I did, but after a couple of walks he was a champion – no more pulling, he was a proper gentleman.”

Emma truly understands the individual needs of dogs and other pets. Listening and learning about each animal’s unique character is vital for creating a good bond and making sure that the animal feels safe with what, at first, will be a stranger.

Emma will arrange a free meet and greet for you and your pet before your bookings are confirmed. Emma uses positive and balanced training techniques that are not harmful to your pet in any way.

Emma was an excellent sitter for our two Dachshunds. Really flexible and able to work with our needs, the dogs loved her, and she left our house cleaner than she found it. Thanks so much Emma!

Emma looked after our pets that is 1 poodle and 5 cats and stayed in our home. She was very competent and we were thrilled with the daily photographs and updates while we were away. We would certainly use Emma again and would recommend her for fur baby duties!

Thank you so much Emma for the care and bonding with Charlie. The communication was A+ along with coming home to a very clean and tidy home. Will definitely reach out again when we are away.

Highly recommend Emma to look after your pets. We have a 1yr old border collie and Emma catered to her needs wonderfully. Emma sent photos regularly and I was confident leaving our dog knowing she was waked daily. and still at home in her routine. Will happily ask Emma to house and pet sit again.

Emma was brilliant. She looked after our two dogs - one large two-year old and one small 5 month old puppy, through torrential rain for four days. Both our dogs seemed very well looked after. She was quick to respond to our messages and kept us informed of how the dogs were. Our house was very clean and tidy when we got back. We will definitely contact Emma again for our next holiday.

Emma has been a real find and is helping train me to help my girl be easier to walk, communicate with and be less reactive and more interested in me, which in turn is already given us a closer relationship ever after just 3 sessions. Plenty more homework and practice to go but really feel we are on the right track. Thanks Emma

Emma was excellent with our crazy puppy. It only took one lesson for us to start noticing a difference in his behaviour. She helps you understand all the elements of training and explains how and why it works. I couldn’t recommend her services enough!

Emma has been such an awesome trainer for our high energy dog. A coworker recommended her and it's been two training sessions so far; I've experienced such a huge improvement and really feel like my relationship with my dog has improved immensely. Emma has taught me to become more confident as a dog owner and to walk my dog with leadership and pride 😊 I can't thank Emma enough really, my mind has been put into perspective on how training a dog is all about the techniques and understanding the way a dog thinks. Really recommend her!!

Emma is great. She is a very good teacher, amazing with animals and equally great explaining training techniques and concepts to humans. She helped us manage our hyper active pupper. It's been amazing to see him change his behaviors under her guidance.

Emma met with us and our 2 dogs today. She was excellent, she made everything look simple and the dogs responded to her instantly. She was patient, calm and unrushed. Now for the hard yards, training ourselves to get the best out of our dogs

Emma knows her stuff!! I was amazed at the instant response from our 9mth old and we responded pretty quick too 😆 The tips we got with lead training made such a difference with walks, and being taught how to bring our dog’s focus back to us as well as read their language was invaluable. I highly recommend Emma

Emma has been walking my dog Lexi for me while I have a broken foot. At the same time she has also been doing some much needed training with her, teaching her some manners and how to walk on a lead properly. Emma is friendly, knows her stuff and is fantastic with dogs. I can't recommend her highly enough.
