Sheila and her dogs have earned multiple titles in many diverse sports including Barn Hunt, Flyball, Disc, Rally Obedience, Nosework, and Tricks. She and Spencer have earned many BIG titles including their CARO rally master championship title. Sheila and her terrier Renegade are the top Barn Hunt mixed breed team in Canada, and Sheila has been referred to as Canada’s top barn hunt trainer. She is a sought after rally judge. Sheila got involved in dog sports thanks to Spencer as she found herself struggling to manage a reactive, challenging, wonderful dog. What she discovered in dog sports was an amazing community of people. Her love of learning took over, and she quickly became very actively involved in apprenticing with different trainers and exposing herself to as many ideas and dogs as she could. Now engaged in the world of terriers she's embracing conformation showing, flyball, agility, and ALL THE THINGS!
Sheila’s academic background has stood her in good stead as she absorbs and reflects on her learning with canines and working with instinct. Despite her many titles and strong competitive streak Sheila values her canines as companions and strives to remember to celebrate their relationship.
