ABOUT OUR TRAINERS
Meet The Off Leash K9 Team
Danna and Trey Campo - OWNERS
Danna Campo came across Off Leash K9 Training in the fall of 2016 when her two 1- year-old black labs, Kona and Liberty, needed some serious help with their manners. As a firefighter’s wife and a mother of three young daughters, she needed to be able to take them places and be able to trust them while handling three young children. While both pups were very smart and loving, they were FULL of energy and loved to escape and run!
After finishing OLK9’s Basic and Advanced obedience programs, Kona is now a service dog for Danna’s oldest daughter and Liberty is on her way to becoming a tracking and detection dog, all before they have even turned 2!! From lesson 1 Danna was so intrigued with Off Leash K9 Training’s techniques and ability to literally change people’s lives! Danna is super compassionate and truly loves each and every client and their dog.
Danna is from Spokane, WA, but has lived in Richmond VA for the last 10 years where she was trained by Head Trainer Matt Ferramosca. Before joining Off Leash K9 Training, Danna was a stay-at-home mommy for 7 years, but decided to follow her heart and jump into the world of dog training. In her spare time Danna likes to ride horses, spend time with family, and be outdoors.

Erica BATES - Trainer
Erica Harman found her way to Off Leash K9 Training Spokane in the Spring of 2019. She had an almost one year old Golden Retriever puppy; Tyson, who she had trained fairly well, but she really needed help with on-leash manners. She absolutely loved basic obedience lessons, the process, and learned so much! She joined our team in Winter 2019 and the rest is history!
Erica grew up in Lacey, WA and moved to Spokane in Fall 2017 to be closer to her fiance’s family. She has added another Golden Retriever, Walker, to her family this year giving her a two dog household. Erica’s passions include teaching, dogs, and learning! She is currently training Tyson in Scent Detection and Walker in Therapy Tasks. In her spare time, she loves hanging out with her fiancé, taking her dogs on hikes, and fishing!
Eric Herrejon - trainer
Eric Herrejon discovered Off Leash K9 Training while watching YouTube dog obedience transformation videos. He was amazed and couldn’t help but DREAM for his very own Cattle Dog, Sierra, to be trained that amazing Off Leash. Eric decided “I want to become a dog trainer with Off Leash!” right then. Through their intensive and educational training academy, Eric became an OLK9 Trainer in the Winter of 2019 with OLK9 Salt Lake City, but joined the OLK9 Spokane team in the Summer of 2020.
Eric has 4 amazing dogs: Odin, Sierra, Innova, and Mako. Eric says “If it weren’t for the Off Leash K9 training methods, I would have never considered owning 4 dogs. I have full control of them and I enjoy taking them anywhere with me knowing they will come when called and listen every single time!” In his free time, Eric enjoys hiking, swimming, going on pack walks with his dogs. He also enjoys playing rounds at local Disc Golf courses!
