Driven by our passion for dogs and experience fostering and volunteering with local shelters, we founded Erin Go Dog in 2017. We started with individual and small-group walks with simple behavioral training. After many happy customers and wagging tails, our individual care grew into a full pack. In 2018 we completed an intensive dog behavior training program with the renown dog behaviorist and psychologist Todd Langston. Since then, we have been developing and expanding our pack without sacrificing the individual attention that makes us unique.
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care a dog could ask for. We have experience with seniors, puppies, aggression, anxiety, and everything in between. We pride ourselves on our trustworthiness, professionalism, and reliability, and we take care of your dog as if it were our own. We go out of our way to ensure every dog is safe, happy, and healthy by addressing their individual needs.
The Pack Philosophy
Pack walk training is much more than simple exercise. Research shows that dogs learn naturally through pack socialization—pack walking fosters that intuitive learning environment. In the pack, positive behavior is modeled and shared, while negative behavior is discouraged. Throughout pack walks, dogs are both challenged and stimulated, keeping them mentally and physically healthy, and allowing them to mature together in communication and confidence. While the dogs in our pack learn and grow together, we cultivate their respect and lead the pack. Our leadership provides safety and guidance for their natural exploration, establishing recognition for humans as pack leaders.
Pack walking is a truly transformative experience. The Erin Go Dog Pack Walk experience provides positive behavioral training while combating symptoms of fear, like aggression and anxiety. Our pack walks create happier, more attentive, and balanced dogs, and they bring this healthy, refreshed energy and mindset home.
If you dream of calmly walking your dog on a loose leash past people and other dogs without jumping or pulling, our pack walks can help make this happen!
We proudly offer the highest quality pack walking experience in the Twin Cities. Through 60-90 minute walks, dogs in our Erin Go Dog Pack learn how to walk together calmly and remain focused while exploring the local cities and parks. Our pack ranges in size, between 2-6 dogs depending on scheduling and availability.
We also offer 90-minute individual behavioral training sessions. These sessions are great for dogs with severe behavioral issues or for those who might need extra attention.
Our pack walks are $20 per walk and individual training sessions are $150.
Join Our Pack
Our pack is possible for any dog, regardless of their age or behavioral challenges. We have a balanced range of breeds, sizes, and disposition so there will always be a place for your dog to fit in and express their best self. You may be surprised with how successful your dog can be in the pack!
Before introducing a new dog to a pack, we first set up an assessment session where we meet and walk your dog and introduce them to one or two other dogs from the pack. We use this session to recommend a walk frequency and specific pack sessions.
In rare cases, we may decide together that your dog is not immediately ready for pack walking. If that happens, we are happy to prepare a behavior training program that can help lead your dog into the pack.
We are looking forward to welcoming you and your dog into our pack!
Erin made my life so much easier and it's such a relief knowing the dogs are well taken care of and when things arise I can always reach out to her to lend a hand.
I would highly recommend Erin.
I've never seen my dogs and other dogs respond to someone like they do Erin!
My dog Jazzy sometimes runs and hides under the bed when it's time to go out, but not with Erin.
Erin is my dog walker and a woman of integrity.
