About Us

Serving the Island since graduating as a certified dog trainer in 2006, I have been blessed to have a business that I love.  Contracting for the owner of the school where I took my training, then moving on to own and operate my own business. Now in 2021 I am proud to say I still have clients that I met when I first started out 15 years ago!

My background also includes natural horse training, customer service expertise, staff training, many years of retail and restaurant management, safe driving record, and first aid certification for dogs. I was also a certified in 2012 as an EFT (tapping) practitioner and am able to bring this alternative energy work into Cheryl's Canine Crew for those interested. All of these skills are what has made for a successful, thriving local business.

Located in Chemainus we are ideally located to cover the Cowichan Valley from Ladysmith to Duncan and surrounding areas such as Crofton and Maple Bay. Right next to Chemainus Lake with few neighbours makes for a great environment and easy access.

We provide daycare and boarding services for well balanced, healthy dogs and would be happy to connect with you.


Our lovely golden doodle who is super charged with energy loves going to Cheryl’s! We’ve seen a huge change in her manners, responsiveness to training and overall sense of calm since going to doggy day care. Tilly adores both Leah and Cheryl! Truly god sends!
