    Does Your Dog Have Challenging Behavior Problems?
    Are you and your dog connected - do you understand each other? Do you move through
    the world as a team or do your struggles include one or more of the following:
  • An out-of-control and obsessive dog?
  • Is your little furry companion a sweetheart - then comes unglued when friends visit?
  • Are you embarassed to take your dog on a walk or to the vet because of how they act
    when they see another dog?
  • Are your dogs fighting over you?
  • Is your dog refusing to follow your commands?
  • Is your furry one cautious and anxious?

    Don't worry - there is help! Long-time dog trainer and behavior specialist,
    Cherie Maitland, owner of Our Furry Friends, offers personalized
    behavioral problem appointments plus small group classes. For over 17
    years, she has used up-to-date, effective and humane methods to train all
    of the basics. Her expert help is available for problems such as anxiety,
    fearfulness, aggression towards people, dogs and cats, nuisance barking,
    and safety with kids. For more information on the private behavioral lessons
    click on Behavior Problems. Obedience classes and small group dog sports
    classes are also available.

"I have taken dog training classes from numerous instructors &
learned a great deal over the years.  However, I have never had a
teacher whom I have learned more from than Cherie, nor have I
ever had such a good time working with my dog.  Her skills &
training techniques are excellent, but her enthusiasm & upbeat
attitude are what make her stand out from her competition.  In
addition, the bonding my lab/golden mix, Torch, & I have
experienced has been phenomenal!  It has made all the difference
in Torch's eagerness to learn, his attention to me & what I
expect/want from him, & his joy while working. I highly recommend
Cherie & Our Furry Friends for all your dog training needs!"
