Balanced Trainer

Hi, I'm Cherish  Danforth, and I have a had a passion for animals since before I can remember. Some of my of earliest memories I was helping heal injured birds, catching turtles and snakes. I was not always as educated in the proper care of animals as I am now but my love and respect for them remains the same. I have a heart for those animals that are misunderstood by humans causing them to be euthanized, surrendered, and abused. In 2014 I started a local rescue group for pit bull like dogs. Most of the dogs I have taken in have been cruelty cases from abuse to dog fighting.  I see what most don't see, I step into their world and view it from their eyes. Over the years I have learned to communicate with dogs in a way that has really opened my eyes to how to train them. I am now and will forever be learning from these amazing creatures that God created in his image, a true creature of unconditional love. I have been studying animals since 1995 and working professionally with them since 2007. I believe teaching the owners of these animals to understands their thinking and language is key to strengthening their bond for a life time. Being a pet owner takes hard work and commitment just as it does for children, but asking for help when times get tough or for guidance to be the best parent you can be is one of the best steps you can take for your companion. I am a mother of three girls, 7 dogs , 1 cat and a temporary mom to numerous rescues through our non profit. I still learn things everyday from my canine friends, most importantly live in the moment. They have taught me what a leader means to them and the fine line between being feared and respected by a pack. I'd love to meet you and your dog and assist in your relationship whether it be starting a puppy off on the right foot to helping an old dog change problem behavior. I feel the longer I train the more I learn. I believe trainers and educators carry a responsibility to constantly educate ourselves and our clients to be the well balanced leaders in our dogs lives. Educating yourself is the first step. I believe in being a balanced trainer , meaning my training style is not based purely on positive training but combining every situations with real life consequences. Every action has an equal reaction. I take the tools I use seriously and use each tool with respect and knowledge of their use. I pride myself in educating owners on how to create an amazing bond with their pet by learning how to communicate and become fair pack leaders.
