Hi there, I'm Emmaline Duffy- Fallon,

Owner and Head Trainer at Citizen Canine Ireland.


I live in rural Wexford with my rescue dog ‘Cowboy’ and ‘Starlight’ the cat.

I am a professional dog trainer, 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 17 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 New York,  i was a staff trainer at Andrea Arden Dog Training in Manhattan and Empire of the Dog in Brooklyn.  I  also held the position of Shelter Manager at BARC, a Brooklyn dog shelter for 3 years. My responsibilities included the rehabilitation, care and rehoming of over 400 dogs and where I during this time  the result being that working with newly adopted rescue dogs 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  fits all approach, when it comes to working with dog, therefore I tailor- make training to match YOUR goals and YOUR dog’s needs and motivations.
