About Ero

I believe nothing in our lives is a coincidence. When I was very young, a "nice person" poisoned my pet dog, which was my best friend. I believe this event has a lot to do with me being a positive dog trainer today.  It is something that I enjoy doing very much.  Helping owners and their dogs learn a common language so they can communicate and live harmoniously, to me, is the greatest pleasure."
