What Clients Have to Say
I called Cherie to help teach me how to manage my two year old rescue, Milo who was people and dog reactive. I had had a few bad experiences where he growled at people who had come to the house. Cherie worked with him and explained everything she did to me and how it was beneficial to Milo. I used the techniques she taught me and now Milo has no issues with people coming to my home. He has also made so much progress with other dogs. He used to bark and lunge at any other dog he saw. We can now walk peacefully by a dog with very little reaction. I am so very pleased with his progress and I could have never done it without Cherie’s help. I also love that she is able to read dog’s body language and all her skills are positive. I feel like I have bonded so much more with Milo with all the work we have done together. Thank you Cherie! I recommend Cherie to anyone having an issue with their dog. I know I also needed the training myself – not just Milo!
About the Canine Professor
Hi! I’m Cherie Beattie, owner of Canine Professor. I started my education in animal behavior as an undergraduate at the University of Louisville in 1996. I earned my Bachelor’s of Science and Master’s of Science in Biology with a concentration in Behavioral Ecology. My career in dog training started when I started volunteering with the Kentucky Humane Society in 2005. That quickly led to an employee position assisting the Behavior Manager, which then led to moving into that manager position. I ran the group training classes and managed the volunteer trainers and assistants as well as conducting private in-home training and answering the behavior helpline. I moved to an internal position where I started a shelter dog training program to help make the shelters dogs more adoptable and to set them up for success to stay in their forever homes. In 2007, I went into business for myself offering private training and group classes. In 2013, I joined the Animal Behavior Institute as a faculty member with their new canine behavior and training program. It’s so rewarding to pass down my years of knowledge, education, and experience to future dog trainers.
