The inspiration for the Cheerfuldogs Store comes from the 13 years that Nee and Jeff spent with Kiyo, who was the Chief Cheery Officer of cheerfuldogs.com. Pictured in the photo above, Kiyo was adopted from a shelter with the usual behavioural challenges of an adolescent dog. Over the years, with some of the essential training games you find here, he grew into a calm and confident assistant in Nee’s training classes with her clients. While Kiyo has passed away, the lessons that he and our clients taught us have inspired us to capture those precious training moments and secrets so that you may have as fulfilling a bond and relationship with your family dog as we have all had with ours.
This is the legacy that Kiyo has left behind – “cheerful dogs, happy people” – it is what we want to help all dogs and their pet parents become.
