Emily Larlham runs the dog training business Dogmantics Dog Training in San Diego, California. She is known around the world for her popular Youtube Channel Kikopup, where she has posted over 200 free in-depth dog training tutorials. She believes that by putting out free training tutorials that don’t involve any forms of physical or psychological intimidation, she will not only change how people treat animals but also how people treat other human beings.
Emily began her training career as an animal caregiver in a shelter about 12 years ago. At the shelter, she met her dog training mentor, Kyle Rayon. After many years study, learning from both human and animal mentors, she began her own business. She combines her artistic background and training skills to invent creative, fast and reliable ways to solve problem behaviors as well as train complex behaviors and tricks. Emily has been invited to conduct seminars on her techniques for training dogs without intimidation in North and South America, Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia.
