We Know ‘DOG’!

Having known Cheryl for over a decade, in particular, as it pertains to dogs, I completely trust her deep base of knowledge and expertise. Her dedication to routine, with calm and patience, has been so good for Oscar. She has offered us great advice over the years, and through consistency of care and expectations, he has become a very sociable little fella. To witness her interactions with Oscar and other dogs, it is very apparent that she knows ‘DOG’, and she knows how to teach owners too.
