“Cherie was magnificent from the moment she walked into my fur babies’ world. My Boston Terriers can be a hand full due to the fact that I need a little , ok (a Lot), of training. During our meet and greet she gave me suggestions and the advantage of her vast knowledge of animal behavior. Not only did Cherie give my dogs attention but she also taught them general behavior throughout her stay. It so happened that her time at our house was during a bad flooding situation in our area. She handled that with professionalism. On top of all this she even took my trash with her at the end of her stay. WOW!! Chloe, Lola, and Finley want to know when I can go out of town again so she can come and play!!”

“Cherie took care of our farm animals for 7 years. She and her husband lived on the property. The animals were well looked after. Even our vet was very impressed with her knowledge and handling of the animals by Cherie. I just wish she was closer now so she could train our new dog!”

“Cherie is an enthusiastic lover of animals and has extensive experience in working with, training and interacting with a wide array of animals. Through individual personal training sessions, she has assisted me in successfully addressing behavioral problems with a couple of my dogs. Her knowledge of, compassion toward, patience with and understanding of dogs is impressive. She is able to establish an immediate connection with animals and quickly earn their trust and affection. Cherie is also a dependable and energetic professional.”

“Cherie is knowledgeable about animal behavior, and also able to communicate with her human clients exceptionally well. She makes her consultations enjoyable – it becomes a case of humans and pets learning together, leading to a strengthened relationship between them. I love that she uses LIMA (a positive learning system) rather than a punishment-based system. Seeing her in action has helped me become more knowledgeable, too, so that I can more effectively communicate with and help the animals I work with. I highly recommend her as a behavior consultant!”

“Our sincere thanks to Cherie for her help with our new puppy Millie.  My husband and I have had dogs for most of our lives.  Cherie taught us so much about how dogs process inputs from us that we had never known. Everything she taught us was a huge help with Millie.

Cherie has a unique knowledge of animals and a special connection with them.  Millie just melts when she sees her and loves to train with her.

Cherie spends quality time with us, follows up in writing to ensure we have all the main points and gives us instructions for working with Millie when she isn’t with us. She is organized and on time and is truly a genuinely nice person.

We are blessed to know her.”
