    After completing Puppy Foundations and Advanced Foundations, we were so thrilled with our young pup’s progress and Emma’s fantastic approach to training that we enrolled in this special coached program. It’s perfect if you have a few specific areas you want to work on with your dog, and Emma is a font of great recommendations as well — she was able to pull together exercises and recommendations on-the-fly based on questions and concerns we voiced during our training sessions. We specifically worked on reactivity to cats and backpack training with our 5-month old Welsh Terrier, and are planning another round of coached classes. Emma has a true talent for helping people to better understand the needs of their amazing companion dogs, and knows how to get both people and dogs working joyously towards shared goals. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this custom program.

    I enrolled myself and our Welsh Terrier, Obi, in this personalized program several months ago. Obi is a fantastic little guy, but he has challenges, like the rest of us. He was struggling reactivity to all sorts of random sounds. It was nearly impossible to walk him on a busy day unless it was super early or very late. It was nearly impossible to watch TV because he couldn’t handle anything he saw on it. He also enjoyed running up behind me, jumping, and playfully nipping at my hands or rear end. He wasn’t doing it aggressively; he just clearly thought it was fun.
    Emma provided strategies to reduce all these behaviors and she was able to determine that Obi needed something more than behavior modification to conquer the extreme sensitivity to many sounds. She gave me some documentation to aid my vet in feeling confident about prescribing something for Obi.
    Now, with months having passed, I was thinking about the progress we’ve made and how much better Obi is doing – and undoubtedly feeling about sounds. Our family is very grateful for the assistance Emma provided and WHOLEHEARTEDLY RECOMMEND HER FOR HER SKILLS AND PATIENCE IN DEALING WITH THESE MORE CHALLENGING BEHAVIORS.
    Obi has graduated from several of Emma’s programs and they’ve all offered us valuable skills – even tricks! – but this one was probably the one that made the biggest impact on Obi and his humans.
    If your terrier is struggling with challenges that seem impossible to deal with, give Emma a try. You’ll be amazed and what she can help you accomplish.

    This customized course has saved us! Our pupper isn’t always food responsive, which can be really challenging with Terriers. Our little guy also got a minor cut on his foot that became infected. Let’s just the situation was challenging for a bit, but Emma was able to work with our specific issues during the healing phase, modifying some existing exercises to keep things fun and productive while we were anchored to the house.

    We love the Special Coached Program sessions. We have two dogs – one a Welsh puppy & the other a 10 y/o Cairn. Emma is tops at reading the room with the dog you’ve got & customizing the sessions to our goals for each dog (which are very similar & yet different at the same time). We have loved her standardized curriculum programs (i.e., Puppy Foundations), but this Special Coached program is a bit like Montessori for your dog – at their pace. Maybe one dog has an easier time with grooming, & the other one at learning tricks. Each week addresses each dogs unique place on their life spectrum. Nothing cookie-cutter about it. We’re on at least our 3rd month of this (maybe more??)…..& absolutely recommend.

    I’ll never write reviews, but in this case I want to
    make an exception. Working with Emma made A
    huge difference in my life and that of my dog
    Coco. Coco was a rescue and came to live with
    me about a year ago. She was a year old and had
    never received any training. Coco was a little
    maniac, but wonderful. A very sweet but stubborn
    and smart girl.
    We worked with Emma for many months and she
    was able to help us become a team. Emma
    helped with everything from basic training, letters
    to my vet, food, toys, and nose work. I would
    recommend her without reservation.

    Emma’s focused approach and customized homework helped our family resolve several issues with our Terrier. The results were impressive and brought more calm and balance into our household. The ability to send video to Emma during the program helped us confirm we were following the coaching correctly, and we were able to confirm our dog was responding positively to the assigned method and technique to correct behaviors. We love the humane, positive reinforcement approach Emma brings!
