About Emily Larlham 

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, it will not only effect how people treat animals but also how people treat other human beings. Emily began her training career as an animal care-giver in a shelter about 12 years ago where she met her dog training mentor Kyle Rayon. After many years of 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.  

‘Dogs are the best teachers’ is Emily’s motto.


The seminar will be held at Kayenna Kennels (9827 Horton Rd SW, Calgary, AB) from 9am to 4:30pm on Saturday September 16th and Sunday September 17th. There will be an hour break each day for lunch.  Snacks, coffee and water will be provided for breaks. There are numerous restaurants located in close proximity to Kayenna Kennels for lunch breaks. 

Please bring your own chair and wear layered clothing for your comfort. 

Parking will be in designated, limited areas around the facility.  Once those parking spots are filled parking will be available in the Safeway parking lot across the street. 

For this workshop, we are looking for 10 working dogs and handlers that have been exposed to clicker training and many different training situations.  Only quiet, friendly, social dogs who are used to busy environments should consider attending as a working dogs.  Seminars are not a good place for fearful or reactive dogs as they can have a setback in their training.  This will allow for Emily to work the dogs and discuss progressive training approaches.
