Emma Parsons, BA, former president and head instructor for the New England Obedience Club, is the Canine Behavior Training Consultant for the VCA Rotherwood Animal Hospital, and Training Director for Karen Pryor Clickertraining. She is also the author of the popular book, Click to Calm: Healing the Aggressive Dog. The book was inspired by her work with her golden retriever Ben, who became aggressive to other dogs after being severely punished by an "aggression expert." Emma turned to clicker training and successfully eliminated Ben's dog-on-dog aggression.
Emma has been featured on numerous television shows, and gives seminars around the world on training and managing the reactive dog. She has also taught clicker training classes to graduate students at Tufts Veterinary School of Medicine and at Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue. Emma runs her own dog training business, the Creative Canine, specializing in canine aggression issues. To learn more about Emma, visit her website www.creativecanine.com
