Emily Rose has decades experience training dogs, and competing with dogs in various venues earning numerous titles and top honors. Her passion for everything dog started young. From the first books she learned to read, she scoured every dog book in each library she visited. Emily started competing in AKC junior showmanship, obedience, and 4-H when she was 9, then went on to become a 4-H instructor in her late teens. When she was 10 years old, Emily was featured on a major Seattle Washington Country music radio station as “Emily the Dog Girl” showing off dog knowledge by answering questions about dogs for 2 1/2 hours.
As a lost dog search and rescue volunteer with Galaxy, her trained lost dog
tracking Corgi, they had multiple successful finds. Helping get lost dogs home by tracing their whereabouts directly. Sometimes within hours of their disappearance!
She and her family volunteer as active rescue volunteers and foster home for troubled dogs with special behavioral challenges, Emily dedicates much of her time to helping dogs in need. Her family’s foster work has saved lives of dogs who were on shelter kill-lists due to training needs. Teaching dogs who’ve never been beloved pets how to be family members, so they’re trained and ready for new homes when adopted.
An award-winning professional pet photographer Emily combines her passion for dog art, and dog behavior to capture priceless photos of man’s best friend, even the most difficult to manage dogs. Emily’s Texas Dog Photography work has been published in books, magazines, used in ads and product packaging, and she donates her photography skills to numerous shelters and rescues for their adoptable animal networking. Without quality photography for adoptable animals they’re ‘invisible’ to the world, photos get adoptable pets seen, and into new homes.
Emily’s dogs (and clicker-trained cat!) have been stars of product ads and commercials, including 1800petmeds.com, BioGroom, and Quado. Featured on DFW news segments, and an Animal Planet show performing in canine sports. Emily thrives on nature walks and ‘mud hikes’ at the lakes with her crew, and despite living in a big city now, is still a country girl at heart!
As a professional dog trainer, Emily is passionate about guiding people and their pets to a lifelong partnership. Believing that learning to understand each other, work together, and connecting with one another is one of the most rewarding parts of pet ownership. Her goal for each student team is that they leave class with “The best dog I’ve ever owned”. Emily teaches using progressive, positive training methods and encourages her students to continue learning even after the course is complete.
