Sterling education canine

Welcome to
Education Canine

Your go-to for dog-walks, dog training and behavioral advice in the French Riviera.

I offer several services in Villeneuve Loubet and its surroundings.
If you do not know which service is suitable for your needs, do not hesitate to contact me using the contact form.


Dog walking adapted to the specific needs of your dog.
I collect your dog from your home and drop them off after a walk of around 1h30.

During the walk we practice certain exercises to ensure that your dog learns to be safe either on a long line and eventually off leash.

All the whilst allowing them the freedom to sniff, explore and have fun on their walk!

Dog Behaviour Assessment

This option can be great if you have encountered certain behavioural issues with your dog.

I come to your home to meet and observe him in his daily environment and we can begin trying to identify where the behaviour comes from and how I can help you (human and dog), to tackle any issues together.

The assessment is followed by a detailed document sent by email.

Individual Private Lessons

For the specific education needs of your dogs.

Private lessons are for when you have specific training needs for your dog.

Either for ‘problematic’ behaviors or for basic puppy training.

I adapt the training to you and your dog.

Why Sterling Education ?

My methodology is science based training and on the importance of appropriate human-dog communication accompanied by positive reinforcement, a fun and educational experience guaranteed!
(without forgetting some small treats of course!!)

About me 

Hi there.
I am Emily

An English expat living in Villeneuve Loubet in France. I am passionate about everything to do with dogs, their behaviour and their relationships with us humans.

With 10 years experience in client services, I decided to reconvert to my passion working with dogs and completed courses in dog training and behaviour.

My training consisted of theory and practical experience, which I continued afterward by shadowing two excellent dog professionals in the 06 region. I then launched Sterling Éducation Canine, providing dog walks, training (either in groups or in private lessons) and behavioral advice for companion dogs.


Taking care of the well-being of your animal requires time and therefore availability! This is why I offer you a dog walking service which will strengthen your dog’s basic training while guaranteeing him an activity adapted to his needs.

Sterling is the dog my parents adopted from a shelter when I moved to France 10 years ago. He has become my dog brother of sorts (and my shadow when I visit) and has been one of my main inspirations in following my dream of working with dogs.

Super balade aujourd’hui en compagnie de Emily, donne de très bon conseille. Ma chienne ne s’entendait pas avec les autres chiens maintenant nous faisons de super balade. Je recommande 🙂

We've recently benefitted from Emily's services and what to say: she's amazing! Our rescued dog was tough on the leash, she was always dragging and did not listen to any commands. After some hours spent with Emily, our pup is already much better, walking beside us and coming back when we call her. I highly recommend Emily!

Professionnelle et à l’écoute, je recommande vivement Emily à qui j’ai confié récemment mon chien. Accompagnée de son fidèle et adorable petit basset Sirius, elle m’a suggéré de nombreux conseils pour mieux gérer son agressivité en présence d’autres chiens, apprendre à le promener sans laisse et sans stress ainsi que d’autres astuces pour améliorer son comportement à la maison. Merci Emily!!

Émilie me garde mon chiot spitz de 4 mois déjà depuis plusieurs mois. On me l’avais recommandé et je ne suis pas déçu. Elle fait attention, l’occupe, le défoule et le sort et est disponible quand j’ai eu besoin et s’adapte. Merci beaucoup à vous pour votre professionnalisme. Je recommande.

Emily is a serious and lovely person, who got a professional contact with the dog, I’m absolutely confident and glad to intrust my toutou to her for the walking 🤗

Super expérience avec Emily qui est à l’écoute et très douce. Notre petite chienne étant très peureuse s’est vite adapter à sa présence et grâce à ses conseils nous voyons l’évolution de Maya au quotidien! Merci Emily 🙂
