Sherry is the founder of Dog Behavior Rehab and The Dog House Inn. She has been working with troubled dogs since 2002, helping rehabilitate physical problems with swim therapy, which led to intense study in dog behavior and this amazing journey into the world of dog. In January of 2007 she began to realize that her house had been taken over by her training clients’ dogs for holiday boarding, and thus The Dog House Inn was born!

Sherry is a Certified PetTech Pet Saver, Certified Force-Free and E-Touch Trainer, Certified Canine Kinaesthetics Practitioner, a graduate of Michael Ellis’ School for Obedience Trainers, and a Professional Member of The International Association of Canine Professionals,  and happens to be fluent in Japanese.  Sherry lives with a full household of dogs (Nala, Daisy and Abby), a reluctant cat, and the love of her life, Steve and her step son. It is a happy bunch!

Dawn’s devotion to the care of the dogs is outstanding, and shows in all that she does. Dawn says “I love my job. I’ve never had a job like it. It’s hard work, but it’s fun and I don’t go home stressed out at night.
