Hi, how nice to have you here! I’m Emanuelle, but you can call it Manu :).
Hi, it’s nice to have you here! I’m Emanuelle, but you can call me Manu :). I am a biologist and a canine behaviourist. My passion for animals comes from a young age. I remember talking to the science teacher that I wanted to understand how the animals’ heads worked. My dream has always been to understand this world and my bachelor’s degree in biology was the first step. I worked with the behaviour of frogs, snakes, lizards and small mammals. I loved it, but I felt something was missing. Until Miles came into my life. Miles is the best dog in the world (okay, you can disagree with me and think it’s yours :))
I looked at Miles’s face and wondered what was going on in his head.
As curious as I am, I started studying about dog’s behaviour and moved towards my professional training. It was the perfect fit: animal physiology, ethology, anatomy, genetics, my experience with other mammals, long story short, my passion for dogs became my profession. I started to specialize and even use my own dog plus a few courses here and there and when I realised I was already more of a canine educator than a biologist if I can separate the two things, lol. Since then, it has been 5 years of many dogs and families, where I developed my own teaching methodology, respecting the well-being of the dogs and their families. Because they both need to be in harmony!
