    Does Your Dog Have Challenging Behavior Problems?
    Are you and your dog connected, and 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?

    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 15 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 Issues.

"I have taken dog training classes from numerous instructors
and 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 and training techniques are excellent, but her
enthusiasm and upbeat attitude are what make her stand out
from her competition.  In addition, the bonding my lab/golden
mix, Torch, and I have experienced has been phenomenal!  It
has made all the difference in Torch's eagerness to learn, his
attention to me and what I expect/want from him, and his joy
while working. I highly recommend Cherie and Our Furry
Friends for all your dog training needs!"
