Kind words from some of our lovely clients!

We had our first session 2 days ago with Sharon for our Rescue dog who has a few issues with fear and reactivity. Sharon was great! She shared her amazing knowledge with us and related things in a manner that were simple for us to understand. Sharon has made us feel empowered about helping our beloved dog work through these challenges…..Rebecca and Larry

Sharon has been an amazing help to me and my two rescue labs. Both of them have similar (but different) anxiety issues that results in being very reactive around other dogs. Sharon has given me the confidence and knowledge to be able to manage these situations better and help the girls feel more confident, calm and comfortable. Both the one-on-one sessions and intensive group training has been invaluable and we’ve learnt so much. Thanks so much Sharon…..Melinda
