Dogs can be frustrating.

Are you tired of barking, jumping, or destructive behavior? Does your dog drag you by the leash? Are your arms and shoulders sore from the pulling? Are you constantly worried about your dog being in public, off leash, or around other people or animals? Are you tired of being embarrassed by your dog's poor manners or lack of socialization?

We couldn’t recommend Sheldon more for improving your relationship with your dog. Do not waste time or money on other trainers. Our GSP, Cuff, was trained for hunting by our ole school grandpa who could be harsh and a little rough. This resulted in Cuff being fearful and unsure of expectations which ultimately led to bad behavior (and unfortunately frustration from us). Sheldon immediately saw that Cuff needed special attention to undo some of that prior training. To me, that’s a lot to ask- untrain and then re-train a dog. But Sheldon did it beautifully, building back Cuff’s confidence and skills to help him become the dog he was meant to be! Cuff is calmer, attentive, and happy. However, the real kicker is Sheldon training us to be better dog parents and leaders (which was probably harder than teaching Cuff)! We are better for it and will carry this perspective for the rest of our lives which is priceless. We can’t thank Sheldon enough!
