Warrior Canine Connection is pleased to welcome its newest member, Cheyenna Wilde, to the team!
Cheyenna came on board in October as WCC’s newest service dog training instructor and is based out of WCC’s Healing Quarters in Boyds, Maryland.
She fell in love with dog training after taking her family’s own pet dog to a training class years ago.
“I think dogs connect with humans because they don’t care anything about you physically or mentally as long as you give them love — they will give it to you in return,” said Cheyenna.
Cheyenna attended Peaceable Paws, Pat Miller’s Dog and Puppy Training Program, where she learned the fundamentals of dog training and behavior modification. She spent three years teaching dogs of all breeds and ages basic manners and socialization.
Interested in the bond between a handler and service dog, she turned her career focus toward assistance dogs. She spent a year working for both Canine Partners for Life and Paws and Affection, while also attending the Bergin University of Canine Studies summer program.
“I’m thrilled to be part of the WCC team,” said Cheyenna. “It’s such an amazing program, and I am honored to get to work with Veterans and play a part in the training of these dogs that have such a huge impact on them.”
When not working, Cheyenna enjoys hiking with her dog, Captain, a 4-year-old German Shepherd, reading and hanging out with friends and family.
Welcome to the WCC pack, Cheyenna!
