Sharon combines her love and respect for dogs and her years of professional experience as an educator and a counselor together with a positive, scientifically based training program to help you have a well-behaved family pet. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), a professional group that stresses gentle training methods. Sharon was one of the first trainers to become a nationally certified dog trainer through the only independent testing group, the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, thus earning the title CPDT-KA, Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed. To maintain this certification, Sharon frequently attends conferences and workshops to further her level of knowledge and expertise. Sharon is extremely proud of her association with Victoria Stilwell and her program to inform people about the importance of using scientific, positive reinforcement training. She is also a member of the Pet Professional Guild, an international organization that educates people on the importance of force-free training.
Sharon has a B.A. in Education and a M. A. in Sociology. She shares her home with four rescue dogs. She has competed in agility and has an interest in canine musical freestyle. Sharon feels that dogs bring tremendous joy to the world and deserve to be respected and treated in the most humane manner.
