Their love of hiking often leads them out to the mountains. 


Cheryl is a double certified professional dog trainer working towards her third certification at the top prestige Academy for Dog Trainers. Cheryl is invested and passionate in science based training and the welfare of dogs in training. 


The dog training industry is an unregulated industry which means it's very easy for anyone to consider and market themselves a dog trainer. Research and ask questions about the trainer’s credentials and methods of training.
