We're very happy with what Erin was able to do! Ghost had typical husky behaviors like pulling while walking him and escaping out of our fenced in yard multiple times. Erin taught Ghost, and more importantly us, how to deal with these issues. Ghost is so much easier to handle now, listens better, has more self control and is generally a more civilized dog.

About

Erin Taggart, BA, CPT

If you're looking to create a bright future with your dog, you've come to the right place! Bright Paws provides humane and effective training methods through one-on-one lessons and customized recommendations right in your home. 

Using reward-based training, Erin will help you resolve issues and create a strong foundation of good behavior for your dog. The best results occur when the dog is taught what we expect and rewarded for good choices, while humanely not allowing unwanted habits to be practiced and rewarded. Your dog learns that good behavior is what works best, no punishment necessary!

Erin engages in ongoing continuing education and is a member of the APDT, adhering to their position statements which includes using the least aversive, minimally intrusive methods.
