About Me

Emily is Pet CPR and First Aid Certified. She is a former county animal shelter volunteer as well as adoption counselor/trainer with San Diego Animals Worthy of Life. In her free time, she fosters young puppies for local SD rescue groups. Emily is an advocate for shelter pets, and has a special love for bully breeds. She has 3 years experience apprenticing with several local trainers…obtaining hands-on experience utilizing modern, reward based training methods.

As a long time earth and animal lover, Emily Keaney, finally found her life’s calling. Recognizing the need for dog training and boarding services that matched her holistic, compassionate and environmentally friendly philosophy she opened Down to Earth Dogs in 2010.

With a soft heart for rescues, she adopted Rodney- the company mascot – and has been shaping him into a calm and well adjusted Mastiff mix. Emily’s most recent addition, Paco, is an adorable & playful Pit Bull mix from Mexico. Emily’s loving and “pawsitive” attitude create the foundation of your dog’s pleasurable experience with Down-to-Earth Dogs.
