We welcome Advanced Dog Trainer, Erin to the ADS Team!
Erin is a professional dog trainer with over 15 years of experience. Upon graduation in 2003 from Triple Crown Academy for Professional Dog Trainers in Texas, Erin was hired on as an instructor in the school. She has taught in many different disciplines of dog training from basic through advanced obedience and behavior modification, to dog sports such as agility and scent detection. Additionally, she has experience in training Service Dogs for Autism and PTSD. Erin is also a Registered Practical Nurse who worked in the Mental Health field. She is excited to have the opportunity to bring her nursing skills together with her knowledge and love of dog training.
During her downtime Erin volunteers with a local animal rescue organization. At home she has two dogs of her own. She enjoys training and competing with her young German Shepherd Dog in Schutzhund and Scent Detection. Her smaller and older Pomeranian prefers to lounge around and cuddle. When not spending time with dogs Erin, her husband, and their two children enjoy travelling and sports.
Service Dog, Dessa has been placed on trial with Wyatt. Watch the video below to see their progress.
The trial period is the time when the family is trained by ADS staff instructors on how to utilize the Service Dog paired with them at home and in public. ADS staff provide training for the child and parents who acquire ADS Service Dogs. Upon completion of that training, the team will formally enter our program and the Service Dog will provide assistance to the child until it's retirement. ADS retains ownership of the Service Dogs and ADS instructors continue to provide follow-up support by phone, email and in person to all Service Dog teams as required.
