The Training Journey

At the first session I'll meet you and your dog, discuss your training goals, and create a personalized plan.

I'll work with you 1-on-1 to help your dog overcome their challenges. I typically meet with clients every other week.

I start all clients with 6 training sessions, but many require additional sessions. The amount of time to successfully complete training depends on the dog and your dedication to training outside of sessions.

Want to learn more about aggression and fear in dogs?

Listen to my episode on the Wild At Heart Podcast!

Emily and I discuss everything from housemate aggression to biting at the groomer. We share experiences from our own dogs and dogs we've worked with. If you have an aggressive dog and don't know where to start training or feel your dog's struggles can't be resolved, this episode is for you!

Erin is so kind and generous and treats my pups like her own babies when working with them. I have a puppy who had issues with body handling and resource guarding. She has worked with us--in our own home--and I've seen drastic changes in just a handful of sessions... She'll even come to your house and work with your pup while you're at work, if needed! She's just fantastic. I've already recommended her to friends and will keep her information handy for anyone in the future who needs tender loving care for their fur babies..

Our first session with Erin was great! She came to our home and spent time getting to know us and our animals. We have a dog who has resource guarding issues which can spiral into injuries between our dogs. She has given us hope and is guiding us through best practices (positive behavior training) and teaching us how to make our puppy (and all our dogs) feel safe and loved.

If I don't have time, can you train my dog for me?

It depends on your dog and their challenges. Some case types, such as reactivity are very successful for me to train while you're busy at work or running the kids around. Dog's with human-aggression require 1-1 coaching.

My dog is barking and lunging, can you help?

Yes! Dogs that bark and lunge are one of my specialties!

My dog is attacking my other dog, can you help?

Yes! I'm very knowledgeable in dog-dog issues.

How can you train my dog if they won't let people in the house?

I'll use an incremental training plan so that your dog is comfortable throughout our training journey.
