Buck Wild Dog Training opened a store and studio at 1126 S. Charles St., Federal Hill. The approximately 1,000 square meter area used to be the home of Espirt de Couture.
Buck Wild Dog Training is owned by Victoria Erbe, a German citizen who has been working with dogs since she was 14 and started professional dog training six years ago. While starting her own company, Erbe was also a trainer for Wings of Love Kuwait and K9 Concepts.
Buck Wild Dog Training is named after heritage’s beloved service dog, Buck.
Erbe worked in the real estate business and was the property manager of 1126. S. Charles St. When the property became available, she decided it was time to give Buck Wild Dog Training its own storefront in Federal Hill.
She wants the space to be a resource for the South Baltimore dog owner community. Buck Wild Dog Training offers dog training classes, provides nail clipping services, and sells healthy dog food and locally made products and clothing for dogs. Erbe hopes dog owners will come by and ask questions. And when Buck Wild Dog Training can’t help, Erbe can refer clients to professionals who can.
Dog training includes packages of six and twelve sessions, as well as three- and four-week programs, where dogs stay with Erbe for most of the day. In addition to providing obedience training, Erbe can train dogs to become emotional support dogs, therapy dogs, PTSD dogs, and dogs that help deaf people.
“Every dog deserves a great life, but he needs obedience training to be able to go anywhere,” says Erbe.
Buck Wild Dog Training is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
