Client Testimonials

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..

Human-Aggressive Aran meeting erin at the park

I needed some help with my fearful and reactive dog and working with Erin was such a great experience. She taught me how to expose my dog to his triggers in a controlled setting and keep him under threshold as he learned. She was so supportive and tailored our training to exactly what we needed. This is not a one-size-fits-all program! I am so thrilled with the progress that we've made and highly recommend Erin and Raising Pawtential!

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. Human-fearful dogs require 1-1 training sessions until they are comfortable enough for me to come alone to train them.

My dog is aggressive towards strangers. Can you fix that?

Through prevention and incremental training we'll get your dog more comfortable around people. For many human-aggressive dogs we will start training online since the dog is most comfortable with you.

My dogs are fighting. Can you help?

Yes, I am very experienced in problems between housemates.
