About Eric Vissichelli
Eric Vissichelli has developed a strong bond with animals over many years as both a dog owner and pet professional. His passion for dog training was first ignited through working with his childhood dog, a Westie named Lexie. After graduating from SUNY Oneonta with a BA in Communication Studies and trying out a few different potential career paths, Eric opened up his own Dog Walking Company, UpDog Pet Services. After several years as a successful Dog Walker, Eric received his Dog Training Certification from the International School for Certified Dog Trainers in January of 2021 and joined the Michael’s Pack team a little over a year later. With his dog walking experience, it’s no surprise that Eric’s specialty is teaching Loose Leash Walking! In his off time, Eric can often be found exploring the parks and hiking trails of Long Island with his Cairn Terrier, Dusty. Eric is also certified in Pet First Aid and CPR.
