"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!" Nancy
"Cherie, the owner of Our Furry Friends is very impressive in her understanding of canine behavioral science and of the subtleties of the human/dog relationship. This, combined with her decades of experience and sound instincts allow her to perform accurately and quickly to achieve results! She also adores the dogs.I've taken my silly, sweet Springer boy to her for some focus and confidence work successfully. My sister's rescue Pyrenees Mix who came with some very scary dog aggression has been almost completely transformed over about four months. She has softened and settled successfully into her new home thanks to Cherie and Alan, another excellent trainer there.I've used both Cherie and Alan - they both are extremely knowledgeable, effective, kind hearted and impeccably honest in their business dealings. Please be careful who you take your dog to, they could get harmed with a bad or inexperienced trainer.....for their sake, make sure you use a good one." From Michelle in El Dorado County
