Cindy Gehring certified Dog Trainer & owner

Dog Help Now

Cindy works with natural dog behaviors in conjunction with consistent communication, cooperation and teaching calmness. Her psychological approach helps teach puppies/dogs make wise choices through her behavioral dog training techniques and gets puppies to a positive right start.



After 14 years of dedicated service to our K-9 community, our beloved dog trainer Cindy was involved in a serious job-related accident. While doing what she loves, a dog became aggressive towards another dog and inadvertently crushed Cindy’s arm as she positioned herself to save the dog from being attacked. 

Mission Statement

“My mission as a certified dog trainer is to bring together my love of people, dogs and leadership to educate and facilitate happier, healthier relationships between our canine companions and the people who love them. I believe that our canine companions give us an incredible gift even with the most difficult of issues. The challenges they present can offer us opportunities to know ourselves and our families better. They can become a powerful catalyst for change in our lives if we are able to see, listen and learn.”

Our boy Cody was nearly feral when we adopted him. He was found wandering in a pasture with his family of abandoned dogs, so when we got him at four months, there was much work to do. I LOVE dogs and thought I knew just about everything about them…..until I met Cindy.

Cody started out as a very high energy, hard-to-manage dog. I had a difficult time imagining the next years of my life with a dog that got hyper-excited when he approached another dog on our walks, towed me down the sidewalk, and didn’t even want to make eye contact with me. Like a very skilled relationship counselor, Cindy showed me what Cody needed to feel comfortable and confident and a relaxed part of our family. We have been working hard on our leash manners and dog-greeting skills, and now I don’t fear the daily walks. Cody is now a sweet, calm, well-adjusted part of our family.

Cindy truly understands dogs and shares that knowledge with her clients, which is the secret to our success. It’s a miracle to see her working with her four-legged clients. If you are willing to apply the knowledge that Cindy will give you, you will see amazing changes in your furry buddy.

Cindy has the following certifications, apprenticeships and memberships:

  • Member of the IACP, International Association of Dog Professionals.
  • Resolving Conflict in Human/Canine Relationships Seminar, Mark McCabe, 2018
  • E-Touch and basic companion dog training certification, Martin Deeley’s International School for Dog Trainers.
  • Martin is an internationally award-winning gun dog trainer and training consultant to Cesar Millan, The Dog Whisperer.
  • Personal Protection Handler certification with Lance Stack house, K9 Clinic, Watsonville, CA. Now retired, Lance was the Watsonville police department’s K9 supervisor and trainer for many years.

Companion Dog Training

Cindy offers foundational training for her clients for optimal success with their companion.  At the same time, providing healing for the dog to be the best he/she can be.

Dogs are a part of our family

 Dogs are a part our family, however, you as an owner also need training in conjunction with your dog so that there is a mutual understanding.  Understanding your dog will create a deeper connection and helping create that unbreakable bond between the two of you.
