Course Curriculum

Hi, I’m Erin Myers


Erin first began working professionally in animal welfare in 2014 after years of developing personal experience handling, rehabilitating, and fostering both wild and companion animals. Her career began in Minneapolis, Minnesota with a large regional Humane Society but she soon answered the call to return to Colorado and joined the Client Care Team at LHS in 2015, providing service at both the Adoption and Intake desks. Eager to deepen her work with animals and the people who love them, Erin became a Senior Client Care Team Member, expanding her range of responsibilities within the shelter. In February of 2017, Erin transitioned from the Client Care Team to become a member of the Training & Behavior Department to the position she currently holds as the Public Training Program Coordinator. As Public Training Program Coordinator, Erin oversees all public dog training and shelter Adoption Follow-up programs, and acts as a resource to answer training questions, instruct obedience courses, conduct behavioral evaluations, and supervise puppy playgroups. Erin previously received an Associate’s degree of Science, and more recently obtained a Bachelor’s degree majoring in Zoology from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. She lives in Longmont with her fiancé, and their three lovable and goofy rescue dogs, Domino, Dexter, and Dobby.

Survey Response from past Basic Obedience client!

Erin is excellent - hold on to her LHS! She helped me build a trusting relationship w/my dog by learning how to speaking in a language we both understood and agree upon. The concepts are so simple but eluded me as a lay person. Once I understood the principles we were working with - everything made so much sense. Thank you!

Loved it again! Our dogs changed so much. We as their handlers feel empowered and calm. What was hard and stressful before the class, became easy to deal with. Our instructor Erin was excellent! She is perfect for us.

Survey Response from past Basic Obedience Client!

This course was very helpful. The information provided was so helpful in training myself and my dogs. I noticed a difference the very first week of class. Erin was an amazing instructor and made training so effective and easy. I was able to ask many questions and get several solutions. I cannot recommend this course & Erin enough.
