Accredited Animal Behaviour Consultant & Certified Force Free Dog Training Practitioner.


HI, my name is Emily.


My life has always been about animals. I grew up in the animal industry and started assisting with puppy classes at 8 years old. I then started entering my own dogs into obedience and agility competitions in my teenage years.

After completing my internship and undertaking numerous academic studies I became a Certified Dog Trainer and Behaviour Practitioner; I then ran my own dog training and behaviour centre in South Africa for over 10 years.

After moving to New Zealand in 2019, I became an Accredited Animal Behaviour Consultant and continued to pursue my passion working with animals.


I specialise in the early stages of puppy development, life skills/ preventative training, fear reactivity/ aggression, as well as resolving problematic behaviours like separation anxiety using science-based positive reinforcement methods.


Everything I do with animals revolves around a strong core belief of Do No Harm, Cause No Pain, Create No Fear! 

My training methods are kind and gentle for your pets and for your family.

My Mission and Training Philosophy

My goal is to help you understand your canine companions unique nature and build a relationship built on mutual trust.

Every dog is different and I use clear communication cues and signals with a variety of rewards. There is no harsh training methods that rely on consequence and intimidation tactics.


My training techniques help owners and their dogs connect and understand each other in a fun way, by reinforcing the desired behaviours they want, and not responding to the behaviours they do not like, as well as managing and redirecting the behaviours you can't ignore.

Training Humans,

Teaching dogs.

Specialising in:

Puppy education & development,

Fear-based behaviour issues,



Separation anxiety,

Generalized anxiety, and

Compulsive behaviours.

Our early puppy education is designed specifically for developing puppies. We aim to help you produce a well- adjusted, socially acceptable, adult companion dog by gently exposing your puppy to different situations, and creating a positive association with the situations at the same time. 


The more a puppy is appropriately exposed to at a young age, the more accepting he/ she will become of different people and experiences later in life.

As your puppy gets older their needs change and they become more aware of the environment around them as well as more distractible. We want to continue teaching our growing puppies that we are safe, more fun and rewarding than anything else, no matter what environment they are in!

In this class we want to continue to work on  building their confidence, working on impulse control, and teach your 'teenage pup' to make good choices in life.
