Kate is a valued member of the Olde Towne Pet Resort, and has been for 5 years. A Canine Training Specialist, Kate graduated from the prestigious Starmark Academy in the top of her class. Kate is versed in several training methods, including but not limited to Obedience, Behavior Modification, and Clicker training. Kate specializes in behavior modification – her most recent trainee was her recently adopted German Shepherd rescue, Booker. Booker exhibited several symptoms of fear aggression prior to adoption, including barking, submissive urination, and dog aggression. Kate adopted Booker with full knowledge of his behavioral issues, and set out to give him another chance with her family. With intensive training techniques and behavior modification training, Kate was able to show him how to trust her and adapt to the world around him. Thanks to Kate’s dedication and commitment to Booker’s training, he is now a happy, well-mannered part of her family.
Erin has been a valued member of the Olde Towne Pet Resort team for over two years. She began as a lead Day Camp Supervisor, but her desire to further assist the dogs she cared for led her to Starmark Academy. Erin graduated from Starmark with an increased knowledge of canine behavior, having mastered Obedience, Behavior Modification, Agility and Clicker training techniques. Erin’s training partner at school was Duke, a headstrong Bloodhound who was very difficult to motivate. Duke’s behavioral issues ranged from stubbornness and food possession to dog reactivity and aggression. Although he was a challenge to work with, Duke is now a well-adjusted Hound, thanks to Erin’s perseverance and skill with Behavior Modification. Duke now lives happily with his three sisters (two Chihuahuas and a St. Bernard) but can often be found hanging out at one of our facilities.
