Emily is the newest member to our Miami based dog and puppy training company Applause Your Paws. She is originally from Mansfield, Ohio and attended the Ohio State University where she received her Bachelors of Arts in Biological Sciences. Post-graduation, she pursued her interest in animals by working at The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and numerous pet stores.
A change in jobs led Emily and her husband, Alex, to sunny Miami, Florida! Upon moving, Emily adopted two dogs from local shelters. One of those dogs, Mango, a mixed breed, is a graduate of Applause Your Paws dog training! That’s right, Emily began as a client of AYP!
Aside from training dogs, Emily also has experience training a wide variety of exotic animals, including sharks, stingrays, sea turtles, and a variety of large and small reptiles. She has even trained crocodiles! She believes that with patience, consistency and some tasty rewards, any animal can be trained!
When not training , Emily can be found at the beach or scuba diving in the Keys. She shares her home with her husband, 2 dogs (Mango and Kona, a shepherd mix) and 6 cats (all rescues!): Bear, Atlas, Itty Bitty, Little Buddy, Chloe and Doodles.
Join us in welcoming Emily by saying ‘Hi!’ 🙂
