Hi, I’m Erin Myers -Training & Behavior Department Supervisor 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, 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 of the Public Training Program Coordinator. As Public Training Program Coordinator, Erin has overseen all public dog training and Adoption Follow-up programs, acts as a resource to answer training questions, instructs obedience courses, conducts behavioral evaluations, and supervises puppy playgroups. From mid-2019 to late-2021, Erin also held the additional role of Transfer Coordinator, further expanding her responsibilities at LHS. In October of 2021, Erin moved away from her role of transfer coordinator and took on the task of restructuring LHS’s training programs, combining both the Public Training & Shelter Training programs to create a more streamlined, cohesive department. As Public & Shelter Training Supervisor, Erin is responsible for supervising the operations of all training department programs and staff. She is responsible for maintaining the behavioral health of LHS-owned dogs while in a kennel/shelter environment and provides effective & appropriate training and handling for both LHS & client-owned dogs in need of behavior modification. Erin received an Associate’s degree of Science, and later obtained a Bachelor’s degree majoring in Zoology from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. She lives in Longmont with her husband, and their three lovable and goofy rescue dogs, Domino, Dobby, and Dexter.

Survey response from past Superstar Puppy Obedience client!

Erin is an excellent instructor. She doesn't just try to teach the content but learns each dog and adjust techniques based on each dog & handler needs. This is a top notch program that I highly recommend to any level of handler and dog.

Erin was a wonderful instructor! She was patient and knowledgeable in all training techniques. When we struggled with behaviors not covered, she would send us an email with information and ideas. I highly recommend this class!

I've taken many dog obedience classes in the past with other dogs, and I have to say this has been my favorite so far. Erin is so knowledgable and wonderful at breaking down information into manageable chunks. She's awesome!
