Shelly has been in the dog business for over a decade working side by side with her Husband Casey and daughter Megan. From her conformation days to owning a boarding and training business, she has encountered many opportunities to work with different types of breeds and temperaments. She has worked at the Humane Society, both as an employee and volunteer, has had positions in various kennels and organizations, and has obtained the knowledge needed to offer dog training at a high level.
In 2005, she attended schooling at the That’s My Dog! E-Cademy where she was immersed in hours of real-life, hands on training. Shelly enjoys working with her adopted Belgian Malinois mix, Anja, and her rescue dog Popeye, a Poodle / Bichon mix.
In addition to her many other rescue dogs she has fostered, she has proven to the general public that a once homeless canine can become an integral part of a family’s everyday adventures once the correct rules, boundaries and limitations are in place!
“I love seeing people come in where we were their last hope, leaving after a first lesson with a smile on their face and now being able to control their once unruly dog.”
