Training is rewarding.

Every dog is a good dog.

Trust and communication is key.

My methods focus on using relationship building and positive reward based training as this is the best way to build trust and communication between canine and human.

We have a wheaten terrier who was having some behavioral problems. [Cherry] has a calm authoritative way about her and my puppy just adored her every time she walked in the door. She always had great suggestion for any situations that we encountered (especially on walks), and gave solutions to and follow up emails as reminders of possible solutions. Cherry is a pleasure to work with and I cannot recommend her enough for you and your pet!

We have had some behavior problems and Cherry had given us so many practical tools to work on with our Aussie mix Piper. Everything is tailored to our specific needs, which has been wonderful. She texts me to check in every week and clearly cares about our progress and the well being of ALL of us. We went through a lot of frustration with our sensitive dog and her quirky bad habits so it’s great to have Cherry as a positive resource. We love her!

I cannot say enough good things about Cherry from Cherry's Gooddog Training! She was a true professional and a pleasure to work with. We have an eight month old Frenchie who needed some help with a few behavior issues. He responded to her right away. She was also wonderful with my kids who needed a little help learning 'appropriate' puppy touches. I would recommend her without any reservations for any of your dog training needs!
