Cheryl is a corporate attorney with twenty-five years of biotech law experience. She is also a writer with two published children’s books to her credit and more than a little passion for dogs, especially her beloved Irish Wheaten Terriers. Cheryl believes that all dogs are good dogs, and owners and pups are at their best when communicating and listening to one another. That’s one of the reasons she adores working with students in our entry level puppy and adult classes. Cheryl also teaches our Summer Fun classes, Fun and Games Agility classes, and Canine Good Citizen Workshops. Challenging your dog and taking your dog off site requires team work, confidence, and leadership—the very heart of The Lisa Rockland Method. Cheryl works with non-aggressive dogs at all levels of development and owners of all ages—including kids, adults and seniors. All are welcome. Recently, Cheryl and Lorcan passed their Therapy Dog International test. They look forward to helping other teams achieve their pet therapy goals.
Lorcan & Muri
Lorcan (male, Gaelic meaning: warrior) and Muri (female, Gaelic name: Murigen: meaning of the sea) descend directly from Ireland’s oldest native Terrier breed—Cheryl brought both dogs home from Co. Cork, and now connects families who are interested in the breed with Irish breeders. She’s even a member of the Irish Soft-coated Wheaten Terrier Club of Ireland. Cheryl loves training her dogs together and often handles both at once in the classroom for every day obedience practice, tricks, agility obstacles, and more. You may see the pair riding a skateboard together, walking on a seesaw, barreling through a tunnel, or simply vegging during classes. While Lorcan is friendly and outgoing, Muri is shy and thoughtful. Both dogs love All About My Dog as much as Cheryl!
