Meet Erica Erica started her professional career as a marine mammal researcher at the Dolphin Cove Research and Education Center. From there, she worked her way around the country as a youth educator, counselor and volunteer, teaching America’s children the importance of wildlife conservation and respecting the animal kingdom. She has also worked with service and guide dogs, where her training skills have helped dogs become lifelong friends to individuals in need. She started her work in this field as a trainer with Guiding Eyes for the Blind, an internationally accredited nonprofit that provides guide dogs to people with vision loss and service dogs to children with autism. She also previously worked with the rescue group Freedom Service Dogs, where she taught service dogs the skills they need to be helpful to individuals dealing with a spectrum of physical and mental ailments. She studied animal science and psychology at the University of Delaware and holds a certification from the Canine Good Citizen program, which is directly in line with her innate passion for teaching dogs to be helpers of all kinds. She is also certified through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.
Dog Trainer Isabelle earned the nickname of “beast master” when she was very young. She has always had a passion for animals of every kind and goes out of her way to be around them. She began by volunteering at shelters and dog sitting for friends when she was young. She then went on to get a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Virginia Tech. While in school, she worked as a veterinary assistant at an animal hospital in Virginia. She also volunteered to raise and train a golden retriever service dog puppy for a year. That pup is now a full fledged Autism Support Service Dog for a young boy. This is what first inspired her to look into dog training as a career, and once she started, she couldn’t stop. Isabelle then fell in love with Colorado while spending a summer working at a small wolf sanctuary in Guffey. After college, she worked as a dog trainer in North Carolina for two years before making her move west and joining the Overland team! Isabelle has trained dogs for everything from service work, therapy work, agility, obedience, and trick training. She is a certified Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. She loves getting to know the unique personalities of every pup she works with, and then creatively finding a way to make them the happiest and best behaved companion they can be. Her favorite quote is “To the world you are just one person. But to your dog, you are the world.”
Group Class Trainer
Skylar began her dog training career shortly after graduating from the University of Colorado in Boulder. Post college she found that her passion was in animal behavior which led her to enroll as an apprentice with the Misha May Foundation. Upon completion of the apprenticeship she earned a certificate as a dog trainer and behavior specialist which allowed her to begin teaching group classes on various subjects. A surprising move to Maui shifted her focus towards shelter work. Working with the Maui Humane Society she spent her time identifying and responding to the behavioral needs of individual animals in order to increase their chances of successful adoption. Eventually, her passion for shelter work brought her back to Colorado where she used her skills to help successfully adopt out countless animals at the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley. During her time at HSSPV, she pursued and attained her CPDT-KA through the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers. Skylar avidly pursues ongoing continuing education and professional development through a variety of different mediums.
