I had been attending countless training classes…it was not until Sherry worked with my dog and me privately..Now my dog is a pleasure to walk. I would highly recommend Sherry for anyone who is looking for a trainer. ~Lisa S

Training Lessons
$90 – $110 per hour

Our training is convenient, east and quick. Programs run weekly so you see results quickly. We comet your home and training your dog while you are at work, running errands or while you’re home. Each training session is 60 minutes and occurs several times a week. A lesson is scheduled with the trainer and dog owner to go over what the dog learned and how to maintain the behaviors. We teach the dog and you enjoy a well behaved dog.

Sherry saved us from ourselves and gave Kili some awesome humans to work with who have the proper tools and resources and don’t feel like they’re at a loss. Kili doesn’t pull on our walks anymore. In fact, because of the advice Sherry gave us, walking him is the pleasure I always knew it could be. Also, he’s getting better and better at knowing WHEN barking is appropriate AND he’s great at knowing WHO is a stranger and who is a welcome guest in our home. It’s really a relief and a pleasure.~Renee H

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

“Sherry is an excellent trainer of both dogs and people. As pet owners, we need as much, if not more, training than our beloved dogs.  Sherry’s patience, her ability to listen and her own love of dogs come through at every level of her process. Sherry has been invaluable in assisting Italian Greyhound Rescue by providing training..and most recently, by fostering and training a Rescue dog. Without Sherry’s expertise, Dallas (a three year old male) had very little hope of being rehabilitated which meant he would not find a permanent home. Sherry could see beyond his fears; she saw a sweet, gentle loving soul. In a few weeks, Dallas was a completely different dog.”

“Sherry is a lifesaver! Literally…. We were at our wits end with our dog, very close to getting rid of him. Sherry came I and within 2 sessions, she has helped us make him the awesome dog we knew he could be. I cannot say enough about Sherry. She was never judgmental or condescending, just friendly and encouraging. I would recommend her to anyone looking for some help with their dog, if she can help Max, I guarantee she can help your dog. Thanks Sherry.”

Choosing the right dog trainer is the most important decision you can make for your dog.

Do all dog trainers, train dogs the same way?

No, dog training is an unregulated profession, which means that each trainer can use different methods, have different experience levels, different education or no experience or education at all. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior has developed standards to help pet owners select a good dog trainer.  Read them at the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior.

Research has shown that using pain to decrease unwanted behavior can be fear-provoking and lead to aggressive behavior. As such we do not use:

  • Choke chains
  • Pronge collars
  • Shock collars or vibrating collar
  • Yelling, poking, jerking, rolling, kicking or hitting
What training method do veterinarians recommend?

Our training methods follow the same effective standards and practices recommended by professional dog training organziations & veterinarians:

Our dog trainers are cerified through the Cerification Coucil for Professional Dog Trainers and/or through the Karen Pryor Dog Training Academy.

How do you train dogs?

Positive reinforcement is used to train puppies, dogs and their people.  We strictly follow these methods in training and dog walking.  We follow the American Humane Association, a national organization dedicated to the protection children, pet and farm animals, on their five freedoms:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury, disease
  • Freedom to express normal behaviors

Freedom from fear and distress

Why don't you recommend 'training' collars?

Research has shown that using pain to decrease unwanted behavior can be fear-provoking and lead to aggressive behavior. As such we do not use:

  • Choke chains
  • Pronge collars
  • Shock collars or vibrating collar
