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 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  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.
