Emily Strong, CPBC, CPBT-KA has been volunteering with Salt Lake County Animal Services since 2016 but she has been working with animals since March 1990. In that time, she has trained many species, including (but probably not limited to): dogs, cats, parrots, a wide variety of other species of birds, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, rats, mice, horses, miniature donkeys, pigs, goats, tortoises, leopard geckos, snakes, pygmy octopi, fish, and even praying mantis! How neat is that.

Emily teaches free workshops through our Building Better Behaviors Program and her expertise, passion for animals, and her wonderful speaking skills always draw a large crowd and her workshops are nearly always full! Emily believes that the knowledge of behavior science should be accessible to everyone, which is why she volunteers her time to help adopters, owners, volunteers, staff, and fosters here at Salt Lake County Animal Services, and we are so thankful for her.

Emily has two dogs at home, Brie and Copper, several rescued parrots, and one foster bunny. 

Thank you Emily for all that you do for the animals AND their humans!
