Dog training type
Sherry is a great dog trainer. She trained our new puppy in a matter of only a couple of lessons. I can’t wait to see how much better our puppy gets while continuing to work with sherry.Feb 9, 2019Verified
Sherry is very friendly and knowledgeable. She was able to get a read on my dogs personality and tailor training to help us get the best results possible. Her rates are the best in NYC and you really get value for your money. I look forward to working with her and my dog.Aug 19, 2018Verified
“I can’t say enough good things about Sherry. She is a true professional. She put us completely at ease and was able to break down the training into very simple terms. She made everything seem like common sense. She has wonderful tactics, great techniques and is a natural with dogs. Sherry assessed our puppy Ginger and was able to adapt the training in accordance with our needs. Looking back, Sherry didn’t train our dog... She actually trained us! We are forever grateful.Dec 19, 2018Verified
Sherry has became a wonderful educator and friend to our two pups! Our dogs genuienly love her and improve dramatically from each and every session. She truly shows passion and skill in what she does. Best of all she helps us to have the knowledge and resources to continue our training progress everyday even when she isn't here so every single day our little pack gets better disciplined and harmonious. It's not just her teaching them, it's her teaching us how to practically and comfortably use every trick she has and we have been more than willing to put in time to do our training homework resulting in an amazing experience.Oct 28, 2018Verified
Out of the many options for trainers, many of whom will cage your dog, barely work on it, or overcharge you 3x more, This woman is absolute perfection. As an owner of a very confused , stressed out and slightly disobedient King Shepherd due to his early history, she came and made a difference in about 7 lessons. Her quality of work is top notch, value of her knowledge is worth gold and speaking to her is very easy. She completely turned my dog around and he is now a very safe, obedient, respectful and happy dog. Anybody with any kind of behavior or training issues with their dog must hire her, she's a human made of gold.Aug 11, 2018VerifiedLeader Of The Pack's reply
Thank u so much!!! A review like this is what I strive for and make a top priority!! it's not always fast, or easy, but, I put my ALL into it. You know I'm ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO YOU, DAY OR NIGHT !! I knew immediately there was a good dog inside a very aggressive outside. It was my pleasure to help you
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Not complicated at all!! You pay in three installments
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In home consultation first, with entire family present. I do extensive puppy testing that very few trainers do, or, are even aware of!! Older dogs get a similar test that is not quite as involved. However, it does give me great insight as to the dogs temperament and intelligence. During this consultation I can tell if the person is serious or not about training. If they are not, I tell them that we would not be a good fit and I cannot work with them, and I sincerely wish them good luck and success with another trainer.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am always reading up on new techniques, as well as, talking to my friend who was former head dog trainer, for NYPD K-9 UNIT. I go to extensive hands on seminars, as well as have friendships with several breeders of high standards and other trainers that I can always trade information with. Education is a very serious thing to me. I ALWAYS want to learn more techniques and different approaches from some of the best trainers in the business.
