About your trainer:
I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer accredited through the Animal Behavior College and a Certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator of the AKC. I have worked in animal welfare for 14 years. I have always been drawn to the "underdog" or the animals that needed a bit more TLC than others. With over a decade of canine and feline experience, I know each animal is different, and I’ll work with yours to give them the specific guidance they need. Whether you’re thinking about getting an animal, have a new pet, or already own a pet with behavioral challenges, I am here to help. Together we can create the happy you've been searching for.

Helping You Help Your Pet
It’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks, and I believe it’s never too late to train any pet. My services are designed with you and your pet in mind, and I believe in working as much with you as with your animal. I’m proud of my high success rate and the level of satisfaction my clients, and their pets, come away with every time - guaranteed.
If your animal needs help with a specific physical or behavioral issue, In-home training with Bloomington Canine Services may be a great option for you. Sessions will take place in the comfort of your own home. As training progresses training may take place in local dog friendly businesses, parks or anywhere you would specifically like to work on improving your dogs behavior. Each training plan is personalized to fit your pet’s needs and your lifestyle.
Common training plans include teaching manners, basic obedience, loose leash walking, learning through play, addressing leash reactivity, understanding and managing aggression and much more.
Bloomington Canine Services believes in training that is fun and is a positive experience for everyone.
Bloomington Canine Services is dedicated to dogs everywhere. I am happy to travel to you at an additional fee of $2 per mile outside of Monroe Co. line limits.
Please note at this time I have very limited availability for Out-of-County training. (updated 3/22)

Happy as a Clam
I’ve worked with my dogs in the past, but none have been quite like my little yorkie mix, Moose. Emily has done an amazing job retraining me so I can effectively work with him! He came to us needing help with potty training, recall, walking on the leash and general manners. Emily has helped us to find solutions and a plan of action for every problem we’ve presented using gentle, reward based training. This has been key for results with his personality! She’s professional, patient, kind, compassionate and determined. I can’t recommend her enough!
Highly recommend Emily. The level of direction she has given me with both my dogs’ behavioral challenges has been profound. She is incredibly dedicated, kind, and honest.
“For more than a decade, Emily has been there for our pets when they needed her. From massaging sore old muscles, to helping with intractable training problems, Emily is a star, a real pet whisperer who communicates with our guys on a level I can’t hear. They love her and so do we. People with her skills are rare birds. If she’s available, snap her up.’
