train by phone.jpg

Here's how it works.


Press "Get your Free First Step" button and tell me about your dog(s).


I'll send you an email to schedule your Free First Step.


You call me on my personal cell phone at our scheduled time.

During our call, I learn more about your dog and give you an action that will get your dog started.

No charge to try it.

If your Free First Step makes sense, schedule regular phone sessions.

Free support

You have free email and text support for anything we cover during a phone session.

No need to dress up.

These are phone, not video sessions. It just works better. Trust me. :)

What clients say about Train by Phone

...I was out of ideas and very frustrated dealing with my little dogs fear issues, caused mainly from 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 see's 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...

Phone training is great!!  Sherry's professionalism, compassion for my granddog, firm boundaries, and clear direction to both him and myself made the trainings a delight and successful.  We worked on a couple of things one-on-one pre-Covid, and when I wanted to learn more tricks to engage with him more recently, I tried the phone consultation.  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.

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.

...I was very skeptical initially but the phone sessions have been extremely effective...

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