Cheryl Carlson (Cher Car) History
When the founder of Parkwood Kennels Mrs. Eva Camp Hines passed away in 1983, I bought the Parkwood Kennels business and property.
I continued to conduct my dog training and breeding business under the name of Cher Car Shepherds while operating the Parkwood Kennels boarding and grooming business but decided to merge both entities into the Cher Car Kennels name in 1988.
Early Police K9's
Commendations and Awards
Her daughter “Schick” and grandson "Kevlar" carry on this "Sebastian" line in our breeding program today.
He figured prominently in our kennel during the 2000's. He was a solidly built, oversized male, steady in temperament, with a well known deep, strong bite.
He was titled in several protection venues, as well as earning his Companion Dog title through the UKC.
I purchased “Timber” as a police K9 prospect, but upon looking at his pedigree, found that his father went back to my old dog, “Renegade”. Timber was also one of the first dogs titled in UKC protection sports.
I'm still working… still training, still showing, still breeding, still judging, still trialing. As many of you know, I have undergone three cancer surgeries since 2005, including a double mastectomy. I am happy to say I AM a cancer survivor, thanks entirely to early detection; and urge all men and women to conduct self examinations and receive regular check ups and mammograms.
