About Bronagh Daly, owner of Five By five canine LLC
Bronagh Daly is a mid-twenties dog obsessed—Eminem & Buffy The Vampire Slayer loving—trainer/agility coach/photographer/writer. She prides herself in her creative thinking, and is never afraid to go out of the box to find a solution. Growing up, Bronagh wasn’t allowed to have dogs in her NYC home, so her love of animals started small. First with crickets, then frogs, then gerbils, then cats. She eventually ended up trying to fulfill her love for dogs volunteering for Animal Welfare Society in New Milford, CT. And finally in 2007, Bronagh got her first dog, a labradoodle named Stella, who is now 11. In 2009, Bronagh’s love for animals took her across the world to South Africa on a conservation trip to help the brown hyenas, who are listed as near threatened in the IUCN Red List. Since then, Bronagh has turned her attention back to domestic animals and has fallen in love with dog training and agility. Bronagh’s main goal is always to help people foster the strongest possible relationships with their dogs and give them the best possible lives.
Bronagh attended The University of Chicago with a BA in Theater and Creative Writing. She always brings this innovated and inventive background to her instruction and photography. Bronagh is a Certified Control Unleashed Instructor and One Mind Dogs Instructor. She teaches agility and Control Unleashed classes at PCOTC in Port Chester, NY and Control Unleashed classes at Paws ‘N Effect in Hamden, CT as well as consulting in-home around the state of Connecticut. Bronagh’s photography can be found in Clean Run and Leslie McDevitt’s newest book, Reactive To Relaxed.
Bronagh lives with three border collies and a labradoodle. Her youngest year-old border collie/werewolf/heart-dog, Oz, is taking her on her biggest learning journey yet and continues to be the best teacher, bringing her to work with the best humans/minds in dog training.
Bronagh is a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and is fully insured.
