"As a trainer who decided to quit her full-time job and go out on her own right in the middle of a pandemic, I suddenly found myself needing to learn how to go virtual! I took the Pet Harmony Remote Consulting Course and learned so much. It truly was a life-saver! I am not very tech savvy and the course was easy to follow and understand and really helped me get up and running quickly with my own remote training and consulting business. I have taken several of Pet Harmony's online courses, and I always learn something new and have incorporated many of the things I have learned into my own training plans with clients. I strongly recommend this course and feel it is a definite must-have for anyone wanting to learn more about going remote with their consulting business."

Emily Strong, CDBC, SBA is co-owner of Pet Harmony, LLC. She is committed to a Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive (LIMA) and science-based approach to training, behavior modification, and teaching people. She loves working with learners of all species, and the list of species she’s worked with so far includes dogs, cats, horses, parrots, ramphastidae, corvids, a wide variety of other bird species, rabbits, ferrets, hamsters, rats, mice, horses, donkeys, pigs, goats, tortoises, leopard geckos, snakes, pygmy octopi, fish, and a few species of insects.

Emily has been working and volunteering in various animal welfare fields since 1990, including several different shelters and rescue groups; as a vet tech in a wide variety of animal hospitals; in stables, aviaries, and wildlife rehabs; as a pet sitter for animals with medical and behavioral special needs; as a freelance journalist and editor; and finally, as a behavior consultant.

In Austin, she co-founded and ran Austin Parrot Society, served on the board of Wings of Love Bird Haven, and served as both the Volunteer Medical Coordinator and a medical and behavioral special needs foster home for Austin Pets Alive!. In 2013 she was offered a job at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah and worked there as a behavior consultant, which is where she met and began collaborating with Allie Bender.

In 2016 Emily moved to Salt Lake City, UT to go back into business for herself. She and Allie developed and founded First Train Home, co-authored the book Canine Enrichment for the Real World, and created and launched a mentorship program to help people become behavior consultants. In 2019 it became apparent to Allie and Emily that merging their consulting businesses and keeping all of their projects under one roof made the most sense, so she joined the Pet Harmony team as co-owner.

Emily is a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (CDBC) and a Shelter Behavior Affiliate (SBA) through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), and is TAG Teach certified at the primary level.

Allie Bender, CDBC, CPDT-KA, SBA is the co-owner and founder of Pet Harmony, LLC and the co-author of Canine Enrichment for the Real World. She believes in working with animals by addressing underlying causes behind undesirable behaviors. She also believes in working with people to find the best solutions for your situation and household.

Allie has been working with rescue groups and shelters since 2006 in various capacities, including founding a student-run organization, Students Helping Rescue Animals, to aid local shelters with fundraising, supplying volunteers and providing education to the public about animal shelter issues.

Allie graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in animal science from Iowa State University. During her education, she spearheaded a research study exploring the effects of enrichment on stereotypical behavior in shelter dogs. After graduation, Allie was employed with local animal welfare organizations including a humane society and low-cost spay/neuter clinic.

Allie has been training animals professionally since 2012. In 2014 she moved to Utah to work as a dog trainer at a large, multi-species animal sanctuary. In 2015 she was promoted to Lead Dog Behavior Consultant. During her time here, Allie was fortunate to be invited to speak at multiple conferences, make TV and commercial appearances, and provide nationwide behavior and training workshops with esteemed colleagues.

In 2016, Allie made the difficult decision to return to Illinois to be closer to family and to start her new business, Pet Harmony. She is a certified dog behavior consultant (CDBC) through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, certified professional dog trainer–knowledge assessed (CPDT-KA), a shelter behavior affiliate (SBA) through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.
