    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?

    Don't worry - there is help! Long-time dog trainer and behavior
    specialist, Cherie Maitland, owner of Our Furry Friends, offers

"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!"
