My life revolves around dogs. Whether I am training, photographing, writing about or just relaxing with; I can most often be found around the canine species.
I have been involved with dogs for over 35 years. Starting in the conformation ring at the age of 13 and moving onto obedience and behavior training. After the birth of my three children I discovered positive reinforcement dog training and never looked back.
Once I switched from conventional to positive; my relationship with dogs was never the same. I consider a dog's mind to be a wonderful and complicated thing. Positive training meant finding solutions; watching, learning and implementing. I joined the APDT and attended the 6th Annual APDT Educational Conference in San Diego and continue extensive research on body language, markers, bridges, shaping and techniques used to better close the gap between the human and canine connection.
I spend most of my time training, writing and working on canine related information in order to help others improve their canine relationship.
My mission is to bring humans and canines into a symbiotic relationship. Where each thrives with the presence of the other. Alone they are just man and just dog; together they complete the perfection of a "canine lifestyle."
As long as I can remember, it has been all about dogs. At Just dogs with Sherri I strive to create a more harmonious for you and your dog.
Although dogs are incredibly intelligent and often seem to understand everything that we say, they are not furry humans. My mission at Just dogs with Sherri is to better your relationship with your dog/dogs. Day to day can be amazing with our dogs but it can also be a huge challenge. By learning about how dogs communicate, learn and see our world we can make our world together a better and more enjoyable place. Through articles, photography, books, webinar sessions and online video courses I bring the human and canine connection to the next level. A true canine lifestyle.
