Sherry at Brainy Dog has been amazing.

We worked extensively together on his resource guarding. Sherry developed a personalized website for him in which we shared with our vet. The vet was amazed by the thoroughness and detail Sherry did. This helped us track his progress with resource guarding. He has improved immensely with no growling or nips when eating…

It's amazing how much a phone call can do for a dog.

So happy with how my Great Dane is acting after a mere two months of over-the-phone training.

At first, I was a little skeptical of training my puppy over the phone with Sherry… Well… we have completed one package of four sessions and starting our second next week! ...

With Sherry’s method, not only do they get to stay at home in a familiar environment, but in every session, Sherry teaches ME to be the trainer!

Sherry was so great to work with over the phone!

At first, I was hesitant about doing virtual lessons, but they worked so well! And I got to be the trainer to implement them and correct bad behavior in the moment. She gave me so many great training tips and I am so thankful for her service!

Phone training is great!!  

Sherry's professionalism, compassion for my granddog, firm boundaries, and clear direction to both him and myself made sessions a delight and successful. 


  I was hesitant at first, but by golly, it worked well!  It's nice not to have to schlep the dog anywhere, just sit in the family room while she trains us.  Her skill with the dogs and people even work well remotely.

...I was out of ideas and very frustrated dealing with my little dog's fear issues, caused mainly by lack of socialization as a Pup.


Found Sherry and started doing phone training sessions to try and get a handle on the problem.


She really understands Dogs and their thinking process. She came up with exercises and great ideas for the both of us to do inside and outside.


Also, she explained to me what was going on with the dog and how he sees the world differently than we do. With that knowledge and her expert guidance and down-to-earth methods I've already seen a difference in him, and am confident we are going to overcome his fear issues. I look forward to our continuing sessions and can't recommend her highly enough...

We have developed a great relationship with Sherry over the phone. She delivers phone training in real-time with the same benefits as working with her in person. Our dog is showing tremendous progress!
