Dog Training and Pet Boarding


About Me

       As long as I can remember, I have had a soft spot for dogs. One day in my corporate world environment I said, out loud to myself -“ I know what I want to do”. (I would have added “when I grow up”  but I had already grown up, my daughter, too, had also grown up). “I want to work and play with dogs”.  That was the first day of the rest of my life.


Puppy Training

Puppy training is generally a good start before Obedience Training. During the first 16 weeks of a pup's life, he is taking in everything around him. This is when they learn what their norm is. I will work with your puppy on impulse control, polite play, house-training, and crate training. By making exposing them early on to what is and isn't acceptable, they learn the early skills that will help them in Obedience Training.

Aggressive Behavior Modification

A number of dogs end up at shelters or get rehomed as a result of aggression issues. This doesn't fix the problem. Unfortunately, it could actually enforce it. I work with dogs in understanding what triggers their aggression and then from there, we can build a foundation that will allow the behavior modification process to be made possible. I am currently only accepting small dogs for this training program.

Obedience Training

Obedience training is important for all dogs, as all dogs need not only physical exercise but also mental stimulation. Most dogs learn best through positive reinforcement training, which is why I choose to use only positive reinforcement in my program. While with me they will learn basic commands such as sit, down, stay, and come. These commands are essential to building a foundation for a well-responsive pup.

Pet Boarding

Going away or out of town but can't take your little one with you? Pet boarding can be a tough decision but now it doesn't have to be. Here at Shari's your pup will feel right at home in my home. With a spacious fenced backyard to run around in, plenty of friends to socialize with, and a flowing water fountain to splash in they may never even realize you left.

What Pet Owners Say


"...I was skeptical but at the same time in desperate need... I sent my very bullheaded pup to Sharon for two weeks of training and my, oh my! I have a different pup! I can't believe she listens and no more pulling during walks! I now have an obedient puppy and it would not have been possible without the care and dedication Sharon affords the pups she cares for.

"Saved the day"

"Sharon did a wonderful job with our 4 month old labradoodle. We had just about given up on house training. Sharon saved the day. We plan to use Shari's Canine Care for any future boarding needs."

"Found a Friend"

Shari was great. She kept me informed all the time. Kodak is so much calmer. He is not biting the way he used to and we are all very excited with the work she provided. We are very happy that we found a friend and where to leave our pets when leaving town.
