format_quote The Tug Dog Training System has been hugely helpful in addressing my dog's anxiety and aggression issues, and have also helped me become a better dog trainer. The way Erin breaks it down makes it easily digestible, teaching the basics before moving into more advanced topics. I highly recommend Tug Dogs for anyone in need of dog training services. format_quote

format_quote Erin was able to help keep my dog Shiloh's focus in the face of distractions. I have gone to Erin for little tune up trainings throughout the years and she has always able to guide me through whatever I was dealing with. I have had many dogs over the years and worked with many trainers on issues small and large, but Erin is just amazing and I could not be happier that that our paths crossed; she is the one who I will continue to return to for my training needs. Thank you, Erin!format_quote

We have recommended Tug Dogs to our friends and they are as pleased as we are. We have complete confidence and trust in Erin, and total peace of mind when Bambi is in her loving care and having so much fun! We are so thankful for Erin and Tug Dogs!! format_quote

format_quote Erin was great with Mo, and we also got our homework which helped make the training stick. This wasn’t easy and it took time and dedication. Life with Mo is so much better now and he’s a completely different dog. I would recommend Tug Dog’s and their trainers to anyone who thinks their dog is lacking discipline. Not only do they train your dog but they give you the tools to use in everyday situations. Thank you to Erin and her team. format_quote

format_quote Tug Dogs trainers were kind, patient, and extremely knowledgeable in handling this very challenging case. They worked tirelessly to get our dog Ghost comfortable with people and other dogs. We are all astounded and so appreciative of the hard work Erin and her team put in. Ghost is now living a happy doggy life with humans he loves, dog friends he plays with, and has made a full adjustment to our home. We can’t thank the team at Tug Dogs enough!format_quote
