Our Team




Emma is extremely passionate about dog training, but most importantly passionate about teaching owners how to train their dogs!


After leaving university with a business degree, Emma followed the usual path and headed to an office based job in London working for a pet food company.


Only to realise that she and her rescue dog Pretzel were not quite suited to the city life! It is then that Emma joined Happy Dogs Training School first as a client, then as an assistant instructor, moving onto a qualified instructor and now business owner.


She continually researches and educates herself and her staff with the latest up to date science on dog training, dog behaviour and psychology. 


You will find Emma's classes fun, high energy and very informative.
