About Me

Emily Rouen
Owner, trainer, dog behaviourist

At Switched On Dog Training & Behaviour I believe that every dog, regardless of age, breed or history can benefit from patient and positive training.

I use proven, science based, force-free methods tailored to each individual dog.

I have been an animal lover my whole life and have owned, dogs, rabbits, chicken & fish. All have been cherished members of the family. They have made my life better and it is my goal to help other people and their dogs enjoy life together more. My aim is to create a fun, productive learning environment for both owners and dogs.

After spending 25 years working as a Chemical Engineer, I decided to follow my true passion and work with dogs full time. I went on to gain formal qualifications and comprehensive work experience in the field of dog behaviour and training.
