Erica Roden


Erica is attending school full time to finish her degree in Information Technology.  With a love for technology and photography that is only overshadowed by her love of dogs, becoming a trainer has been a dream of hers since she was a little girl.

Erica lives with her husband Rick in Mineral Ridge with their four dogs and their parakeet Ozzy.

Igloo-Siberian Husky rescue, Toby-Australian Shepherd, Ecko-Australian Shepherd Rescue, and Piper-Australian Shepherd Rescue. 

Toby was the first of their dogs to take a class at The Canine Campus and once Ecko and Piper joined the family, they continued the tradition.  Erica has worked with Toby and Piper through Agility classes and Obedience.  Ecko has worked through Obedience and Scent Work.  Piper, Ecko, and Toby will continue their education at The Canine Campus. 

After rescuing the twins, Piper and Ecko, who are double merles often prone to disabilities due to bad breeding, Erica became an advocate for special needs dogs.  Ecko has a hearing impairment but that doesn't slow her down in the least.  Erica and Ecko communicate through hand signals and body language.
