Eryka Kahunanui is a graduate of the prestigious Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training and Behavior, teaching life skills to dogs and their owners throughout Calvert and Anne Arundel counties in Maryland. Eryka is the owner and relationship coach for Kahuna’s K9s dog training in Prince Frederick, Maryland.
It wasn’t necessarily a love for dogs that brought Eryka to dog training (although she’s always been a huge animal lover); instead, her out-of-control, dog-reactive puggle, Bizzle Fo’ Shizzle, is responsible for bringing up the idea. After months of baby-steps and discovering the world of positive reinforcement, Eryka and Bizzle decided to start Paws to Rufflect to share their story with other dog owners. Eryka’s other dogs Sarah, Kuna and Bones are featured throughout the blog, as well. Athough Bizzle will tell you they’re not nearly as important.
Kahuna’s K9s’Paws to Rufflect chronicles mishaps, discoveries, and growth that a relationship with a canine can bring. With a humorous and honest tone, Eryka opens up to the reader, offering insight to a world less-than-perfect, sprinkled with training tips learned the hard way.
