This course includes: polishing up & improving on basic commands (sit, down, stay, come, and heel) with increased distractions and over longer distances; plus teaching new skills including place (sending your dog to lie down on & stay within defined boundaries, such as a mat), drop it & leave it! Training your dog to go to a specific place is one of the most useful behaviors an owner can have!

Hi, I’m Erin Myers - Public Training Program & Transfer Coordinator at Longmont Humane Society.

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, MN 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 Modification 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.

Erin is a masterful canine instructor. She genuinely appears to care and is very diligent with each "student" and handler. Thoroughly impressed. Thank you so much for the formal lessons & informed conversations. You're a part of our dogs' lives forever!

We cannot get enough classes with you, Erin! Excellent! Our dogs are better behaved. We enjoy having dogs more than ever before. These classes are great for us as humans too - they reinforce us to be consistent and patient. Thank you!
