"Erin is an excellent and thorough educator on all things canine. Whether you're looking for dog training, canine first aid, or a dog walking certification in the Vancouver and Richmond area, you'll be happy you chose Erin to help you." 

— Philip Jung, The Wag Pack, Vancouver BC

"A stellar, solid professional with powerful passion and endless experience to share in her new endeavors instructing dog pros. An absolute gem within and for the dog industry." 

— Kimberly Burgan, Author, Instructor & Business Coach; Austin Texas

"Early February 2016, I adopted an adorable and very smart Jack Russell/ Chi X 3 month old puppy, Shiloh. I knew, for both her and me, for our own good it would be necessary to "get thee to obedience classes". Please note that it wasn't so much about Shiloh as it was about me. I wanted to ensure Shiloh had the best chance of successfully growing into a well adjusted, stable, calm dog and the only way that was going to happen was finding a trainer that embraced the same goals and a similarly philosophical way of training not only dogs, but people too. Long story short, I found Erin Taylor and her company, Pawsitive Connection.

Shiloh and I just graduated from Preschool puppy class and are now enrolled in Primary School puppy class. I highly recommend Erin and her wonderfully intuitive ways of teaching both puppy and human, because, whether or not we wish to admit it, these classes are really about teaching us humans how best to communicate with our 4 legged furry family members, and Erin knows how best to bring parent and puppy together to create a bond that can't be broken, and a bond that is well schooled and well trained. Thanks Erin, we look forward to our continuing education with you!"

"Erin Taylor of Pawsitive Connection is the only trainer that I will let work with my dogs or will recommend to my friends and students. I have been training my own dogs for sport for 25 years and am still learning new things from Erin. She's passionate about what she does and wants every dog and owner to have a positive experience and end up with a positive relationship. She explains things so that anyone can understand them and work with the dog they have. She's a welcome addition to the Richmond dog training scene."

— Lia Bijsterveld, The DogsMa Nosework, Richmond BC

— Yvonne Lai, Happy Wags, Vancouver BC

"Erin has helped us immensely with our huge lovable puppy Sherman. Her expertise with dogs is evident every time we meet. Beside her knowledge and experience she has a friendly, gentle manner that is absolutely wonderful toward both dogs and humans. Erin has taught us so much and we will always be grateful we met her."

— Brenda, Brian and Sherman, Richmond BC

"Erin was the instructor for my dogtec Dog Walking Academy certification and I couldn't have asked for a better instructor. Her expertise as a force-free, positive reinforcement dog trainer along with her canine first aid knowledge (she's a Dogsafe canine first aid instructor, too) really helped give me the skills to become a better dog walker. Erin also teaches dog training classes at her Richmond facility so if you need some help, contact her today!"

— Wesley Jung, The Wag Pack, Vancouver BC

"Erin is just amazing with all dogs(and people)! She is super passionate. She got me and my very shy dog into Positive Reinforcement training and later she introduced us to Nose Work. I can already see great changes in my dog! She has became more confident and more comfortable with new things! All my family members are really happy about the result! I strongly recommend Erin."

— Jane Chiang and Beleen, Vancouver BC
