Dog Owner Reviews

“Erin is the best with the dogs. Any time I’m in a pinch or working a long day, Miso goes with her for the day and comes back exhausted and happy. Something I used to stress about if I didn’t have time, but don’t anymore. If you’re looking for a dog trainer/walker in the seacoast area I highly recommend APA!”

– Zack & Miso Kittery, ME

“Thanks a bunch Erin. It’s been a pleasure working with you. I thought you did a great job planning out our sessions & how each one would build upon the previous one. We all, including Zoey would always look forward to seeing what we could learn each time.”

– Rob, Cisa, and Zoey Strafford, NH

“Erin’s patient and positive intervention based training methods are sure to bring you and your loved pup to a place where you are confident and proud of your furry family member’s behavior in and out of the home. She cares for every pup and client like they are her own and her methods work! Highly recommend!”

– Megan and Apollo Hooksett, NH
