She also attended a workshop on animal communication by Caroline Leroux, on vibrational medecine as well as on canine massage and was teached by the internationally behaviorist renowed vet, Dr. Joël Dehasse***, to be a comportementalist coach. She was also teached techniques by the very experienced renowed trainer Ken Ramirez. Émilie studied many theories from the most renown specialists like Turid Rugass, Dr. Sophia Yin, Jacinthe Bouchard and many more.
