Kennel Manager & Trainer
Emma grew up having a passion for animals and started her first job at age 15 working at a place called Westin kennels. While working there, she became educated on the behaviors of dogs and their interactions with each other. She also learned how to properly groom and care for dogs. At Westin Kennels she met her first mentor. After two years of working for Westin kennels she moved to another kennel called The Yuppy Puppy pet spa. There she worked as a kennel attendant. This included cleaning, medicating and interacting with pet and rescue dogs. A large part of her responsibilities at Yuppy Puppy involved overseeing the dog daycare, understanding different breed behaviors, body languages, and ensuring all dogs were safe while having fun. Emma also trained several employees to be kennel attendants. Emma was inspired after 4 years of rigorous kennel work that she wanted to further her education at the nation’s top law enforcement k9 training schools. She focused primarily on law enforcement k9s and personal protection dogs, while also handling some pet dogs. After completing school, she went and worked for her first mentor back in her hometown. Emma has two dogs of her own, a one-year-old black lab named Groot, and one-year-old Dutch Shepherd named Kreek. Emma is currently training Kreek to be a personal protection dog. She is the organization queen around here!
