A Passion for Our Best Friends
Comfy Pet was founded shortly after we adopted a young Australian Kelpie mix from our local animal shelter.
The instant love, appreciation and loyalty of this beautiful rescue has rekindled our passion for dogs and their health and wellness needs, as well as the importance of training. We are inspired to provide the Gonzales area with loyal and loving pet care services ever since.

Cheri Lane Garino
Owner, Groomer/Pet Care Specialist
Growing up, Cheri was always helping with animal care and in elementary school -seriously- wanted to be a veterinarian. Her mom raised horses and dogs (Great Danes) and often cared for neighbor's pets as well as farm animals. As an adult, Cheri ran an accredited early childhood program (which some say more resembled a zoo!) and taught children to respect and care for all kinds of animals.
Cheri has over 10 years experience caring for and grooming a variety of pets and dog breeds. Her experience with pets has included pot belly pigs, cats, chickens, ducks, geese, hamsters, mice, rats, guinea pigs, turtles, frogs, snakes, lizards, ring neck doves, parrot, iguana, fish, and lots of dog breeds. <3 Here is Cheri with her beautiful rescue, Zena the Kelpie.
Lou has a clear passion for all breeds of dogs. He has years of personal experience working with dogs, as well as some horse training history. Professionally, Lou has worked as a chef and has owned two restaurants. Now he has inspired our own menu of delicious and nutritious high-quality treats and snacks for your dogs and cats. Here is Lou with his beloved grand-dog, Romeo.
