Hi there, I'm Emmaline Duffy- Fallon,
Owner and Head Trainer at Citizen Canine Ireland.
I live in rural Wicklow with my rescue dog ‘Cowboy’ and ‘Starlight’ the cat.
I am a professional dog trainer, a certified behaviour counsellor and a graduate of the San Francisco’s SPCA’s Academy for Dog Trainers. I'm a founder member of APDT Ireland check out for more information about this Association.
For the last 14 years i've been training dogs and coaching their owners and i love my job.
Having spent 5 years training New York City dogs and their owners, I returned to Ireland where I set up Citizen Canine Ireland.
While in the US, I held the position of Shelter Manager at BARC, a Brooklyn dog shelter for 3 years. My responsibilities included the rehabilitation and remedial socialisation of over 400 dogs, the result being that working with newly adopted rescue dogs and pre-adoption counselling, is now an area close to my heart.
My goal is to make training rewarding for both you and your dog.
I am confident that my methods, suggestions and training approach is logical, kind and effective. I do not have a one - size all approach, when it comes to working with dogs, as I believe that every dog has an individual personality. Therefore I tailor- make training to match YOUR goals and YOUR dog’s needs and motivations.
