Listen to The Dog Training Audio Experience!

Erika’s podcast is SO helpful! I’ve been following her on instagram for a little while and just recently learned of her podcast. The topics are so relevant and the information therein incredibly helpful. We struggled for what felt like a long time with our dog we adopted. We used two different trainers, read at least 4 books, and done an absurd amount of research because I felt like I kept getting conflicting information. Erika clearly outlines the topic, gives guidance as to how to handle the topic of the day, and has fun while doing it. Very entertaining while learning. Can’t say enough great things about this podcast. I am no stranger to dogs having raised a Seeing Eye puppy and volunteered with Seeing Eye dogs weekly for another 6 years but learning lots of new information from Erika. Do yourself a favor and listen and share!

A must for separation anxiety!

I just listened to the separation anxiety episode and it hit on all my feelings! I have been working with my dog on her separation issues since she came home at 8 weeks old. She is now 1.5 years old so you can image how defeated I’m feeling. Some of thing mentioned about medication and not feeling guilty as a pet parent were exactly what I needed to hear to keep going. Thank you so much Erika and her guest for this podcast and all the work that going into.
