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 furry companion a sweetheart - then comes unglued when friends visit?
  • Are you embarrassed 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 20 years, she has used up-to-date, effective and humane methods to train
all of the basics. Her expert help is also available for problems such as anxiety, fearfulness,
aggression towards people,dogs and cats, nuisance barking, and safety with kids.

"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!"
