About Emma

13 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a 22-year-old University of Waterloo student. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Social Development Studies and a minor in Peace and Conflict studies. I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Social Work.

I am someone who loves the outdoors. I grew up surrounded my water and forest. I love hiking and camping and be around nature. I spend my free time either outside or reading. I have a small obsession with books. I am also what many call a "home body," I enjoy spending my evenings and weekends close to home.

I currently live in a student apartment unit with two other roommates. We are all huge dog lovers. My apartment is not on any main roads. It is located in a more residential area of Waterloo. There is large grass area at the back of the building, and Waterloo Park is only a five-minute walk away.

I have been a lover of dogs my whole life. When I turned one, my parents brought home our first family dog, Sophie. A year later Martha joined us. I grew up alongside these two animals. They were my best friends. I grew up learning how to care for dogs from my parents. I was very close with my dogs and were very attached to them and only wanted the best for them. Sophie and Martha, unfortunately, passed away while I was in high school.

My family decided to adopt our now dog, Django, maybe two to three years ago. Django suffers greatly from separation anxiety and therefore my entire family and myself have worked very hard to help him with this. Django is still quite young and therefore he is very excitable and tends to pull on a leash, but through hard work, he's gotten better. Therefore I both have experience and skills to help dogs who suffer from separation anxiety and leash pulling.
