Sheila has an amazing gift with dogs. She treated my fur baby like one of her own and I would recommend her to anyone!

Sheila was fantastic with my dog. She definitely knows what she's doing when it comes to our furry little friends. Top notch and highly knowledgeable

Sheila IS my dog whisperer and has helped me so much with my two, giving me the confidence to succeed in my at home training and walking my rowdy retriever with techniques that actually work in very little time! With her extensive knowledge and personal experience she is amazing at empowering you to do the same and to never give up on what ever issues you might have.... there is always a solution and she is the best at knowing what they are!! :)

Sheila is such an incredible person, who has an admirable talent and passion. She is one of the few who I would trust with my fur kids. No dog is too much of a challenge for Sheila. AARCS fosters have given her a run for her money but she takes it in stride and learns with each new dog. =)
