Erin's Biography- I started training in 4-H dog obedience with my family dog-a rescued border collie/chow mix...what an odd mix. When I got my first dog, a female basset hound named Harding, I realized that I wanted to do more. Harding and I started in agility, and never looked back. I started assisting the class instructor and learning how to teach people to play the game. From agility, I moved on to flyball which is my main dog activity now. Harding went to the bridge December of 2004 with two flyball titles (FD and FDX) and an agility title (NJP). Harding still holds the rank of #3 basset in North American flyball. I also owned a mixed breed named Elwood who I competed with in flyball. Elwood was the dog that got me hooked on the sport of flyball. Elwood earned his ONYX title in flyball, after running for 9 years. He joined Harding at the bridge in June of 2005.
I now have four rescued Australian Shepherds and an un-planned brown puppy that own me: three of them currently play flyball and are titled in the sport, one is retired and one is in training. I am the owner and captain of the Two-Lane Highway flyball team (based in Laurel at Fidos for Freedom). All of my dogs are also trained in agility and Service Dog skills, and also enjoy other sports; K-9 disc, carting, and tracking. I am also an Assistance Dog Trainer with Fidos for Freedom, Inc.
I formed Red Rover in the spring of 2007, to offer training, pet-sitting and other pet services to the Carroll and Northern Howard County areas. I have been training for years, and have held various vet assistant positions over the years. I have also been a pet-sitter for another company...which all makes me very capable and reliable. I train and pet-sit with the same philosophy...be as positive as I can! Everything Red Rover does is done with love, from training to pet-sitting and everything in between!
