Emma has been an artist, nature and animal lover all of her life. She welcomed her first dog, Hilde, five years ago and so began the obsession with all things ‘dog’.
Training her three dogs with positive reinforcement and Nosework led her down the path of understanding her dogs and wanting to help others to bond with their four-legged family members.
Emma has completed the CBS Aspiring Instructor course, Karen Pryor Academy Professional Dog Training course, the L.E.G.S. Applied Ethology course, Master course – Aggression in Dogs and is a Practising Nose Work Instructor (PNWI) and a Dynamic Dog Practitioner, assessing how body pain and discomfort can affect behaviour. She is currently studying through DogNostics and Animal Centred Education (ACE) as an integrated approach to animal wellbeing and education.
Emma shares her life with her Bernese Mountain Dog Hilde, Leonberger Porsche, Landseer ECT Amir and rescue kitty Mino.
Emma loves to focus on a dog-centred approach to living with our canine family members and has opened a centre for Wellbeing and Training, the first of its kind in SA.
