Hi.. I am Sharon the head trainer for Paws Control. Whilst studying for my degree in Psychology at Exeter University my interest in how dogs and humans learn and behave grew and I began asking questions as to how our human behaviour effects the behaviour of the animals that we live with, and how best to improve our relationship with our dogs to help achieve harmony at both ends of the lead.
We currently have two chocolate labs, Harry and Keira, that we have had since they were 8 Weeks old puppies and are now 8, and our two young yellow Labs Big and Little Baz. Big Baz was a rescue from a life in a Crate, and he has taught me so much more about training and the struggles that many people have when taking on a Rescue dog. We very recently took on Little Baz from a great home that due to unfortunate circumstances meant he had to be rehomed, and he has fitted in so well since joining our crazy labrador house! Each of them have different strengths and you will hopefully meet one or all of them during Paws Control Training sessions.
