About Dog Care Knowledge

Hi, my name is Sharon and I am the voice, creator, passion, and yes, "knowledge" behind Dog Care Knowledge. 

I talk a lot about dogs, always have, so thought I would tell you a little bit about me for a change. 

After earning a qualification from the Animal Care College in 1996, I went on to become certified in Canine First Aid, and, after an even longer time, earned my Masters Degree in Business Administration whereupon I opened my first dog day care center in the UK - K9to5 Doggie Day Care!

Since that time I've relocated to the USA so had to leave K9 to 5 in the capable hands of my friend and colleague (Christine).

I have spent the last decade or so focusing on helping my own dogs and other dog parents to improve the health of their pets through natural remedies and cures.  Currently I'm in the process of becoming certified in Natural Health Care For Pets; which covers natural nutrition, holistic treatments, aromatherapy, traditional Chinese medicines as well as the emotional and spiritual aspects of companion animals.

Ava is full of life and full of beans so we compete in nose work training  and trials to keep her occupied and focused.  So far she has passed all her Odor Recognition Tests (ORT) for Birch, Anise and Clove and has won multiple nose work titles.  Right now we are training to compete in the advance nose work level NW3.

This site is a collection of my knowledge and experiences that's involved in caring for dogs. I am a dog lover, entrepreneur, and overall problem solver, but I'm not a veterinarian.  If you think your dog has a health issue, please consult with a professional veterinarian.

Please, feel free to take a look around my site, have a look at my dog care tips and stay up-dated with entries by subscribing to my dog care blog as I will be updating this site on a regular basis.

But most of all, enjoy your dog and come back soon!
