Our 20 acre country farm with boarding kennel facility provides the perfect setting for active socialization of our puppies by exposing them to farm animals (goats, horses, sheep) along with other dogs, boarding and training clients, and lots of friends…ensuring a well rounded development.
Although many of our dogs have been involved in formal service such as Search & Rescue, Police K-9 Service, Competitive Dogsports, Conformation, Personal Protection, Therapy and Handicap Assistance, Theatrical Productions, Television and Film; the vast majority of our dogs have served as loving and loyal family pets and protectors.
We offer an extensive variety of dog training programs to assist your puppy in growing and learning in a safe, stimulating and fun environment. Cher Car Kennels specializes in ALL breed training for the family pet, along with advanced training for sport, protection and police.
The combined experience of founder Cheryl Carlson along with business partners Lori Webster and Carole Field creates a truly unique team offering expertise in nearly every facet of dog training.
We specialize in preventing dog behavior problems by educating dog owners through personalized private home visits, group classes or in-kennel "boarding school" training, using positive, praising methods of dog obedience instruction. We provide the knowledge, understanding and expertise necessary to teach your dog "good behavior" rather than simply punishing what you might perceive as "bad behavior".
The overall well-being of the dog is then achieved through a special balance of loving attention, exercise and a sense of purpose derived through training. Cheryl Carlson and Cher Car Kennels have also been awarded special recognition repeatedly for service to our customers and community, and we have achieved high industry benchmarks for product quality and ethical business practices. Our philosophy of offering the very best breeding and training possible works to ensure each puppy buyer is happy with their Cher Car Kennels dog, and for it to be a loved member of the family for its lifetime.
