Meet Our Trainers

Springfield

Erin Spence, a graduate from Starmark Academy and a certified Canine Training Specialist, has worked at Olde Towne Pet Resort since 2015.

Erin practices a balanced training philosophy and works to enrich & strengthen the bond between you and your dog.
A firm believer in changing the true motivation behind a dog’s behavior, rather than simply addressing its symptoms, Erin provides
canines with the clear communication, predictability, and stimulation needed to be well-behaved and satisfied in life.

Specializing in obedience, canine socialization, and behavior modification training, Erin offers methods that are not only rewarding
and fun, but produce long-lasting and reliable results

Dulles

Kate Brown-Wing has been training for 20+ years, is an AKC/CGC Evaluator, and has trained over 150+ breeds. Kate identifies canine breed characteristics, but as an instructor, chooses to focus on each individual dog and their owner (even within group classes). It’s no surprise that – no two dogs and their owners are alike! For Kate, it’s more than obedience; it’s about developing trusting partnerships and training each dog to offer his/her attentive mind and choose to  deliver cooperative canine tasks, skills and behaviors.

Kate’s classes are upbeat, informative, resourceful and productive. Her belief is that dogs (like people) are best able to learn and develop if provided consistent, positive learning methods and are free of fear. With positive training techniques and methodical training plans, each dog is evaluated for progress, proofed and encouraged to mastery. Whether an older dog, rescue, or competitive canine super-star, she aims for well-rounded, calm, cooperative, happy family dogs.

She lives with her 2 pups, Diggity and Jeeves, who often can be seen at OTPR-Dulles and are ‘demo’ dogs for her classes, often adding comical notes to sessions!

Michael Kelly, CCPDT (CBCC-KA) Dog trainer

Michael is a certified professional dog trainer with extensive experience working with shelter animals and helping to create manageable household behaviors. Michael most recently worked at Greenbriar Veterinary Hospital. While at Greenbriar Michael was able to apprentice under the tutelage of Renee Nappier and Caroline Shedd. He was able to gain expertise with training dogs towards titles in competitive obedience and other dog sports.

Michael and his wife have three dogs, Raja, Maui, and Zulu. Upon adoption Maui was incredibly fearful and under socialized, however Michael was able to work through those hang ups quickly and build his confidence to the point where was able to obtain his first obedience title through the UKC. Raja, an Akita mix, was an incredible escape artist from the beginning. Michael quickly realized through consistent communication and Raja’s love for food they were able to tackle and achieve many things from there.
