Erin was able to completely transform my dog's behavior. Minnie is a black lab that had so much energy I couldn't even walk her down the street. She also had a bad habit of jumping on us. Now, after Erin worked with her she is a joy to live with and to take for a walk. Her manners have improved so much that everyone asks me who trained her.
