Emily is passionate about improving the welfare of pet dogs and has dedicated her career to improving our understanding of their behaviour.

Emily combines clinical work with research into the prevention and treatment of problematic behaviours and has published papers on a wide range of subjects, including the development of separation-related behaviours and noise fears in dogs, and the most effective and humane training methods for dogs.
