Emma has been involved with animals for as long as she can remember. She has worked in the pet industry for 10 years, as a dog daycare attendant and as a veterinary technician. Emma is a graduate from the International Academy of Canine Trainers, a training school registered with the BC Ministry of Advanced Education. The curriculum is based on requirements outlined by the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (http://APDT.com) and she believes in training based on today’s standards of positive reinforcement training and scientific learning theory.
Emma is also a certified teacher with the BC ministry of education and is fascinated by learning theory for both humans and animals. As a teacher, she understands the importance of patience, positivity, support and clarity when dealing with students, human or canine. Emma has never met a dog she doesn’t like and is dedicated to helping dogs and people establish clear and enjoyable communication skills. She is so excited to be a part of the Babydog/TomeyK9 team.
Emma is enjoying exploring the dog sport world and is focused on competing with her dog Ferdinand in agility, and rally obedience.
