Erin has worked with dogs for over 10 years. She brings a love of dogs and a wide perspective of the many aspects of what Bay Area dog life entails into her training. With the goal of preparing puppies and dogs for their best lives here in this unique place we call home, she has a special interest in cooperative care and helping adolescent pups learn the many necessary skills ranging from building confidence about town, to loose leash walking and recall - so important!
Erin has worn many hats when it comes to working with dogs. Her background includes grooming, dog sitting, dog walking, you name it! She won Best Pet Sitter in the Bay Area by Bay Woof in 2011. To launch into training, Erin began working at SF Puppy prep in 2020 and attended the Dog Training Internship Academy in 2021. She currently teaches classes at SF Puppy Prep and trains puppies at Outdoor Education SF.
Erin is adamantly committed to learning as much as she can about the ever-growing field of science-based, positive reinforcement dog training, as evidenced by her attendance at a wide variety of training conferences. She readily applies her continued education in her daily life, with the personal goal of creating the most efficient, humane and teachable practices for the betterment of the guardian dog relationship.
