Dog Training

Above the Standard Dogs

Meet Your Instructor

Emily Richardson
Owner, Founder

I grew up around dogs and have always been a huge animal lover. In 2010 I sought out training for my newly adopted dog Zuni. He was a young, high energy, social guy that came to me as sweet as can be but with separation anxiety and minimal manners. My dream was to be able to have solid obedience and reliable off leash training so he could go on every adventure with me. After a few sessions, Zuni’s trainer called me a natural and offered me a job. Dog training was never something I’d even considered, but at the time I was halfway through a business degree in college still with no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Over the last 10 years, dog training has introduced me to so many amazing opportunities, people, dogs, places, and knowledge. I’ll forever be grateful to Zuni and Zuni’s trainer for unexpectedly launching me into this career. Without training I would have never known just how good of a dog Zuni was capable of being, and to this day one of my favorite parts of being a dog trainer is being able to see the potential in my client’s dogs that they do not even know is there. My goal is to never stop learning and seeking knowledge from others in the industry and to always be ABOVE THE STANDARD!

At Moors Pet Sitting  we understand that our Fur Childs’ parents are very busy, but we are here for you to make things a little easier! Instead of being pent up in the house for hours a day, we make sure your best friend gets the exercise and attention they need. Without proper exercise, a dog can be left with a lot of extra energy.  This energy can come out in the form of aggression, or even cause them to become anxious and tear up furniture. To keep your pups feeling happy and at their best, our most common service is mid-day daily walks while you are at work. However, we also offer pet sitting if you are away for longer periods and your dog needs extra visits and attention throughout the day.
