Erika is super knowledgeable and made training our dog fun for both us and our pup. Very friendly and patient. Highly recommend.Feb 10, 2020Verified
Erika is absolutely amazing!! My dogs took to her within 5 minutes of meeting her. She totally knows her "stuff" and has made our lives with our 4 legged children so much more wonderful! It is hard to articulate how truly wonderful she is....just try her and after one session you will be saying the same thing.Feb 3, 2020Verified
Erika is amazing! I’d been having a rough time with my three dogs barking non stop. One session with Erika and I feel like I have new dogs! I can’t wait to see the complete transformation after our four sessions together. She knows her stuff, is amazing with dogs and kiddos, and made it all seem so easy and manageable. She left my house around 1:00 this afternoon and I can’t stop raving about her to my friends and family! 10/10.Feb 14, 2020Verified
Erika explained so much about our dogs behavior. She is very knowledgeable, personable, interesting and compassionate about dog training. Even after one session we are seeing improvement. I highly recommend her.Aug 27, 2018Verified
Erica came right on time. She was friendly, spent a little time talking about what we expected from our pup, then she spent time actually working with her. She also let us try what she had taught our dog. Erica finished up by giving further advice and answering any questions we had! I felt the time and money was well spent. Now it’s our turn to put the lessons to practice to make our pup behave as we wished!Apr 14, 2018Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I'm going to ask a lot of questions! I want to get to know you and your dog as well as I can so that I can have a full understanding of the behavior struggles you might be having with your pup. The more information I can get, the better! I'll usually ask how long you've had your dog, if you've done any previous training, and of course, what are your training goals?
