My name is Erin Marion KPA-CTP CPDT-KA. I am a professional dog trainer in Portland, Oregon. I have been in the dog industry for 10 years in areas such as nutrition, veterinary and behavior. I have three dogs at home who I am constantly training!

I use positive reinforcement and scientifically based methods in my classes. I like to keep classes fresh, fun, and challenging with newly developed commands, creative strategies, and mentally stimulating activities.

I actively train with my Australian shepherd in Rally-O competitions, and regularly train my pack out on Oregon’s amazing hiking trails year-round.

In addition to my own pack, I have trained more dogs that I could count and have experience with puppies of all ages, adult rescue dogs, purebred dogs and dogs with fear based aggression. I also love working with people! I know how important it is to teach humans and dogs together to be successful as a team.
