Sherri Regalbuto is an amazing dog trainer! She is currently training my standard poodle, Hank, an 8- year- old cutie, with no prior formal dog training. Hank needed to learn some commands and manners with the arrival of my granddaughter.
Coming from a show dog background, where dogs are taught not to sit, Hank's first sit command should have been a challenge. Sherri had him sitting within the first 10 minutes of his first training session. Not only was he sitting, but he was loving learning! And so it has been for each session, where he has learned to sit, lie down, stay, leave it, and go to his bed to lie down. He is to the point where he can now be off the leash and relaxed with my granddaughter. That being said, guided by Sherri, we are always aware and on guard as all should be with an infant and a dog.
What I love about Sherri is that she keeps the training positive, focusing on and reinforcing the good things the dog is doing. That way your dog loves to learn. I also love that she engages the dog owner in every step of the way so that you can easily practice and reinforce all that is learned. At the end of the lesson she sums everything up and leaves notes of what exactly to practice.
In several instances I asked for your help in dealing/understanding my dogs, and I got great pleasure and relief in doing so. Your insights had a great impact on my dogs well being. From teaching me to read and understand my dogs correctly, helping us in critical moments with good advice in training, to new equipment, and sadly for us, you also taught us how to do the best for our dog when the saddest of the moments arrived. I can't thank you enough for sharing your experience with us with passing away.
Your wide knowledge and experience are a blessing for us and we hope to further enjoy them.
Wish you good luck
When using Sherri as a dog consultant, I found her to be first rate. She was super helpful in that she asked for LOTS of details, listened without judging, and gave thorough and insightful instruction as how to better cope with and handle my dog when in a stressful scenario. Her advice was spot on… it’s as if she knew what my dog was going through! And, I’ve used her tips to avoid other potentially stressful situations… and we have been free of any over-reactions. I would not hesitate to use her again… thank you Sherri!
The course has exceeded my expectations, Thanks. Maureen

I feel more confident, thank you so much. Libby
Thank you, you have put my grooming fears at ease. Cheryl
After watching Sherri go through the whole process of testing each individual puppy, we highly recommend having this done. We thought we knew our puppies pretty well, but she showed us new things we were unaware of.
