What alumni Think of Advanced Foundations

Emma is exceptional. Her methods are easy to follow and I now have a turbo-charged but well behaved Welsh Terrier. I found Emma’s methods gentle, dog-intuitive and the results incredible. I enthusiastically recommend her! I would like to say that Emma’s training of me and my Welsh Terrier has enriched both of our lives immensely. She guided both me and my puppy through extremely challenging times. Her expert training produced a relaxed and happy owner and a relaxed and well behaved terrier. Thank you for such a gift.


Emma is incredibly knowledgeable, but very laid back. The investment of both time and money is so worth it when your terrorist becomes the sweet terrier you were hoping for!

During Harvey’s puppy years, Emma helped us create a plan for him so we get things done and live normally. She set us up for success in his adult years with him coming when we call, releasing potentially harmful objects on command and knowing how to manage him when we have guests. She also was key in resolving his allergy problems.

Our Harvey will come when called, he’ll run to his bed and lay down on command, and thanks to Emma he has stopped itching!

    We immediately followed Puppy Foundations with this Advanced Foundations course, and I’m so glad we did! It’s honestly the best investment we could have made in setting both us and our pup up for success. Emma is such a capable and kind trainer; she tailored her approach to the specific temperament and pace of our 4-month-old pup, a “full-strength” Welsh Terrier! All training materials are clear and straightforward, and Emma was always there to answer any and all questions we had.

    I have spent my life with terriers, and have previously always run into behavioral issues that have taken a lot of time and effort to unwind. I have the utmost confidence that starting our pup out with Emma’s training from a very early age has allowed us to bypass so many potential issues, and truly understand our WT better — everything from how she’s thinking and processing things to concepts that weren’t even on my radar like body sensitivity. Our bond with our little girl is so strong, and we’re able to really enjoy her puppyhood thanks to Emma (and her amazing and esteemed assistant Miles)!

    We enrolled in the Advanced Foundation class after completing the Foundations Plus. Pippa is “full strength” Wire Fox Terrier who is now 7 months old. The Advanced Foundation was a great follow up for the Foundations Plus class because it built on and strengthened the skills she already learned. And are still working on….
    I can’t say enough about how caring Emma is about Pippa. Pippa had digestive issues that affected her health and had me very upset and worried. Emma patiently worked with us through the problem suggesting different food options and recipes for foods to try.
    She was always very prompt at getting back to us during this stressful time and sent lengthy text messages with her suggestions and ideas.
    She was also very helpful with house training Pippa. Also still a work in process…. It was a continuous struggle to get her outside to eliminate in a timely manner. We could spend 20+ minutes waiting for her to do her business. With lots of suggestions from Emma, we finally found a solution that is working.
    I highly recommend Miles and Emma Terrier Academy.

    We are so happy to have had Emma and Miles take us through Advanced Foundations. Our bond with Griffin has been accelerated through the training and games that have become a part of every day life now. A greater understanding of dog behaviors builds that bond, makes life easier and makes our love for Griffin greater. It’s been an amazing first 5 months, looking forward to that same enjoyment for years to come. Thank you.

    We participated with advanced foundations after puppy foundations. Every week we see changes in our Walter! He continues to amaze us on how eager he is to learn new things and practice his exercises each day. We are so happy that at 5 months old he greets new people with all four paws on the floor. No jumping! Emma’s calming technique to help coach these wiggly bodies on how to settle and relax their minds is amazing. I am noticing that Walter will just lay down and relax while I am up moving around. O getting into mischief! I highly recommend this program to anyone who did the puppy foundation program and to those who are struggling with a strong minded terrier. They truly do want to work with their humans, they just need to be guided how to. It’s like teaching them a different language. This course is highly worth the investment.

    Our little one is very aloof and this course has really helped get us on the right track with maintaining his focus and just overall good routines. Hello relaxation! If you have a terrier, Emma is the person you want on your team, no questions asked!
