What People are Saying About Us
"Emily is amazing with dogs, she worked with my husky mix and is working with my husband and I to trainer our puppy. We appreciate the help with adding a new pup to our pack. I highly recommend Emily to anyone who is looking for a trainer."
"Emily is great. She started working with Blaze back due to some reactive/aggressive behaviors he had developed towards one of my other dogs and complete chaos ensued my household. Blaze in a miniature dachshund and although he is a very smart, sweet boy, he is very stubborn. Emily made it so easy to show us the proper steps and proper way to teach him. You can definitely tell she loves what she does. She helped bring back peace to my home and I am SO GRATEFUL!!!"
"Emily is an amazing dog trainer she listens to your concerns and makes sure to give you the best advice on how to handle it. Emily has trained my 3 Gerberian Shepkies! She conducted puppy, intermediate and advanced training with them. This all started in 2016 with our first dog Nova and then Niko and last was Nerys. I'm glad we met her and will always recommend her to anyone who is looking for an amazing dog trainer."
"Emily is an amazing trainer. She has mastered the ability to read a dog's body language. When Lizzy and I trained with her she would foresee what we needed to work on next and taught me the skills to work with a determined dog. There were times when two dogs in our class setting were going to get aggressive. Emily saw this before the bad behavior manifested, and had them working together shortly thereafter. Lizzy adores her and would do anything for Emily. We trained from puppy to advanced. We passed the CGC. Lizzy is a trained therapy dog. Thank you Emily for blessing us with your talents."
"Kimber is leash reactive, mostly with other dogs, and although we had been making slow progress I just felt stuck and needed help! Thanks to Emily, Kimber has made HUGE progress over this short time, not just with reactivity, but also with overall leash manners. I have also become more confident handling Kimber and redirecting when she does react. I am so excited to see how she continues to improve! If you are in need of dog training of any kind, such as reactivity or obedience, I HIGHLY recommend Emily!!"
"Thank you for helping me and Zelda from the time she was a 5 month old puppy. Because of how you teach and train you have won and earned my respect."
"Emily is AWESOME ! She was very patient. I love that she demonstrates with my dogs then allows me to practice with her guidance. I highly recommend her services. I'm a first time dog owner and raised my dogs with no training for 2 years. Emily was a huge help. She's knowledgeable and gave practical applications. My favorite part is she met us in our home and offered to meet in public places when the dogs were ready. Emily is a kind person. She was understanding when life circumstances changed and I needed to discontinue training. I hope to work with her again!"
"Emily has such an easy way of guiding the handler and dog in working together. In one short hour, I learned so much about gaining a working relationship with my Labrador. Something I had lost hope of achieving. Can't wait for our next lesson."
"Emily is a fabulous dog trainer! Our dogs started working with her as puppies. We enjoyed her teaching so much, we had intermediate and advanced training. And, we weren't done yet! Trick and therapy training too! It isn't just your dog that gets trained, the human does too. (We probably need it more than our K9's!) It is important to learn how to read your dog and Emily will help you do just that!"
"Emily does a great job and has helped us as new dog owners to better understand our dog and coached us as we develop skills to train him how we want him to behave. We highly recommend Emily of The Tenacious K9."
"Burlington has been working 1:1 for about 4 months now and he is slowly starting to piece everything together!! Emily has been super patient with us. She is also really good at reading Burlington and knowing when to take a break and how much to push. I am so excited because he is having more good days vs 'bad' and even his 'bad' moments I can usually bring him back to me."
"Emily is a gifted trainer. She is easy to work with and flexible. Buddy is reactive to other dogs and the progress he's made with Emily is incredible. She is a great cheerleader for both dog and owner. Can't recommend Emily highly enough. Her fees are reasonable and she is very reliable. We couldn't be happier with Emily and her crew."

"Best experience for my dog ever! Moose was too afraid to step out of the car to meet Emily, after only a couple weeks he started to grow and learn to trust. Moose had trouble with motivation; Emily always had a solution to keep him engaged and learning. He has much more confidence, as do I. I appreciate everything she taught me to help Moose grow. Emily is a true balanced trainer and tries everything to help your dogs, she caters to the dog and owner in front of her and treats each as an individual. I would recommend her to anyone, with any dog and any problem. Absolutely loved working with her!"
"Emily is literally the best trainer. She adjusts to you and your pups needs. I had an amazing experience working with Emily. I still remember the first day of training I thought 'oh no, my dog is never going to learn anything.' I was 100% wrong. She has saved me many, many, times and I am more than grateful for her knowledge and passion for dogs. Thank you Emily!!!!!"
"Emily is an amazing trainer! Would recommend to anyone, especially those who are looking for service dog training. Have been working with her over 9 months and the results are evident."
