About Me

My name is Sharon Needham and I created TailWaggersK9Sport to help more people understand and enjoy their dogs. I have been training dogs since 2000 and previously worked with and trained other species. 

Training your dog with “tough love” or showing them who is “alpha” are theories that are a thing of the past. At TailWaggersK9Sport we focus on using positive, science-based and relationship building methods. By providing a way for you to communicate with your dog so that they understand. My team and I will work with you, helping you build and create a wonderful relationship between you and your dog. It’s important to me that both you and your dog enjoy the moments and time you spend together.

Fred a founding member of TailWaggersK9Sport, Jun 24, 2010 to Apr 3, 2022

Hi I'm Fred and I have trained with Sharon (the owner of TailWaggersK9Sport), for over 11 years now. Through team work we have achieved a number of titles in multiple sports. More importantly though we have enjoyed every moment, building a great relationship and learning every day. We have had the opportunity to meet some wonderful people and create some great memories. 

Now we want to share the enjoyment with you, so that you and your handler can have a great life together.
