Stark County's Canine fear & aggression expert

Positive Reinforcement Dog Training for a Life Full of Pawtential

Through private, in-home training, I'll make sure you and your dog are prepared for every adventure, whether that's Summers on the lake or movie nights on the couch.

Some of my clients participate in dog sports, go on hikes and enjoy hanging out at the local breweries and wineries. Others just want their dog to stop barking at every dog and person they see. Whatever your dreams are, I'd love to help you achieve them!

Dogs can be fearful for many reasons. Whether they had a bad experience or just lack confidence, I can help your dog feel comfortable in and out of the home.

Some dogs have more bark than bite. Others have a lot more bite. Regardless of the cause, I'm here to help you and your dog both feel safe.

Everyone is always asking how we trained Eggsy so well. I say we didn't, Erin did! He used to be afraid of dogs and people. We now walk him completely off leash in the neighborhood, on trails and at the brewery.

Erin is very friendly and caring! She answers any questions I may have. She is very knowledgeable and gives different alternatives to help make a perfect fit to get your desired training outcome. She responds in a timely manner and is the first person I think to contact when I need help with my dog.
