Meet your team
Teresa Tyler is the Director of TheDoGenius Ltd. An Anthroozologist, animal behaviourist, veterinary nurse and human psychotherapist, with a keen interest in human/canine interactions. Teresa has developed the DoGenius to provide opportunities for people wanting to understand, work and share their lives with dogs from a dog-centric perspective. The courses encourage the recognition of other animals as ethically significant beings, and that an understanding of these interactions, is a moral imperative. She is based in Cyprus where she also works as a writer, teacher and canine behaviourist.
Dr Emily Stone received her PhD in Anthrozoology from the University of Exeter in 2020. Her doctoral research was focused on exploring the practices and discourses of breeding and exhibiting pedigree cats in the UK. Emily has previously worked in feline welfare and currently works on a range of anthrozoological issues and research areas as a casual postdoc and research fellow.
Emma-Jane Lee is a teacher, writer, assessment consultant and canine behaviourist based in SW France. She is a trustee in one of France’s largest animal shelters, working on pre-intake, surrenders, in-shelter protocols, bridging contracts and post-adoption support. Her work as a behaviourist is mainly with post-bite referrals and dogs presenting a high level of aggression.
Christiana Nicolaou is close to obtaining a Ph.D at the University of Cyprus and her passion to study and understand canine behaviour began a few years ago when her new rescue dog arrived in her life. She continues to expand her education in canine behaviour by attending dog conferences, workshops and seminars. She is currently living with her partner and two rescue mix-breed dogs in Cyprus.
Irene’s involvement with rescue dogs resonates with her long-held passion to better understand the relationship between human and non-human animals. She has a background in equine education, contributing to the development of professional equine courses and works with a range of horses and their guardians. A Romanian rescue dog sparked her desire to study canine behaviour, with subsequent qualifications in teaching, training, bereavement, animal cruelty and well-being. Irene lives with two Romanian rescue dogs, a Devon collie and three cats, and fosters dogs both from the UK and abroad. She has a particular interest in the rights of human and non-human others, engendering cohesive and empathic interspecies relationships.
Rebecca believes that the most important thing is to build a trusting, loving relationship between humans and dogs and that the key to a successful partnership is great communication. Rebecca spends many hours studying, attending conferences, workshops and other forms of continued professional development so that she keeps up to date with new scientific methodology and is constantly expanding her knowledge in all things dogs.
