Event Details

As Director of K9 Trail Time Emily has established herself as an industry leader in dog sports retail, and specifically canicross, through experience and qualification. It was her passion for the dog sports and also the care of the canine athlete which led her to set up K9 Trail Time in 2012, Canactive Hydrotherapy Centre in 2019, Canicross Coach in 2021 and the Active Dog Academy in 2023.

A qualified canine therapist and adult educator, Emily brings this to every aspect of her consultancy and she has also co-created the only Ofqual regulated qualification in Canicross Coaching, providing a new level of professionalism within the sport.

Emily currently lives in Gloucestershire with her partner and 4 rescue dogs who provide the inspiration and motivation for her businesses.
