The Daisy Hill Vet team are excited to welcome Sheryl to our team as our resident puppy preschool trainer. Sheryl joins the team with a wealth of training experience having been the Head Puppy Instructor at a Logan dog obedience club for the past 2 years.
Sheryl loves to teach puppy parents how to use positive training techniques to encourage their puppy to become a confident, happy and stable companion, as well as an important member of their family.
Sheryl was born in New Zealand, but grew up in the local Logan area and has owned pets all her life, including horses, dogs, cats and budgies. In addition to her knowledge with puppies, Sheryl is skilled in being a strong leader for large breed boisterous dogs and assisting their development, through her own fostering experience. She also creates environmental enrichment strategies for dogs because, in Sheryl’s words, “Give your dog a job or they become self-employed leading to all sorts of trouble!”
Sheryl has completed a lot of additional study in dog training, having completed a Certificate in Dog Psychology and training and is looking forward to attending the annual Aggression in Dogs Conference.
Sheryl is thrilled to have joined the a dynamic team at Daisy Hill Vet and is delighted to be taking the Puppy Preschool Classes, which will enable her to share her knowledge with the local community to give puppies the best start in life.
Described by her peers as patient yet energetic, in her spare time, Sheryl loves mountain-biking, trail-running and indoor rock climbing and has recently started learning to play the cello. Sheryl has two dogs acquired from Big Paws Dog Rescue, Cruz, a Mastiff cross who weighs over 60kg, and Penny, a Bull Arab cross.
