Assistant Trainer & Intern
Tiffany has always had a passion for all animals! Dogs, of course, hold a special place in her heart. Tiffany got her first dog at 4 years old, a Chesapeake Bay retriever mix named Poky. Although she was young at the time, she learned a lot and was involved in his training as the two grew up together. Tiffany quickly realized she couldn’t live without a dog and found Dakota, a Husky mix puppy. They went through obedience and agility classes together, which gave Tiffany the push to be where she is today.
While attending college at Indiana University, Tiffany volunteered at the local animal shelter. There, she taught basic obedience to available dogs, helping to make them more adoptable. She is currently works at a local boarding kennel and veterinary hospital in Hadley, MA. Tiffany hopes to return to school to pursue a graduate degree in animal behavior. As part of our professional team, Tiffany provides in-home lessons for basic manners with puppies and adult dogs. She also offers training walks for dogs – the perfect mix of training and exercise!
Emily discovered at an early age the magic that is having a giant creature sit on your feet and look at you like you’re the only thing in the world that matters. When Emily’s first dog Billie Jean came into her life, the pup needed a family as much as Em needed a dog; they were inseparable from day one. Emily’s interest in training dogs began here. She’d set up rudimentary hurdles with boxes and sticks in the backyard and attempt to do agility training with Billie Jean. Emily would run over the jump… and Billie would run around it. Over the years Emily has continued to work with animals in a variety of settings, from pet sitting and dog walking jobs, to wildlife rehabilitation.
Though she just completed a degree in psychology, Em has realized that working with animals, particularly dogs and horses, interests her more than working with humans. Thus, Emily started working at Dakin Humane Society as an adoption counselor. She is excited to dive into the world of behavior modification and training, and is so grateful for this opportunity to learn (one of her favorite things to do)!
