“My company produces large expos for pet lovers across the country. I’ve met thousands of dog trainers, from Anchorage to Miami and Boston to San Francisco. I can easily say that Erin is one of the very best and she quite literally changed our lives. My boxer baby is now a happy, healthy, confident canine who no longer lives in constant fear of strangers and we owe it all to Helping Hounds.”

 Special Challenges

Helping Hounds Training welcomes dogs with significant behavioral issues. Whether your dog is painfully shy or fearful or your dog is acting aggressively towards other dogs, we are here to help! These cases will be evaluated and a Custom Training Program recommended in special consideration of your dog’s needs and the safety of others. If we are unable to help you with your dog for some reason we will be happy to provide you with a referral to another qualified professional in your area!

If your dog is acting aggressively toward people we will be happy to talk with you about the appropriate next step to take. We work closely with veterinary behaviorist, Dr. Colleen Koch at Mizzou Animal Behavior Clinic. Dr. Koch sees all species and helps owners deal with any behavioral problem. For cases of extreme fear or aggression we work with Dr. Koch as a support team for the owner and their dog. Our goal is your success and our priority is your dog’s well-being.
