Sharon & Kodiak Hi. My name is Sharon Nowakowski. I have been training dogs for over 20 years. I am certified in canine CPR and also an AKC certified CGC evaluator. My calm nature and gentle training methods are sure to put your dog at ease. If you speak to any of my friends or associates, you will quickly discover that dogs are the priority of my life… my husband included! I have many years of experience working with rescue dogs, especially Alaskan Malamutes and Siberian Huskies. Over the years, my canine activities have included obedience, therapy visits, lure coursing, weight-pulling and dogsledding. I currently have four dogs, all rescues or "second hand" dogs.

My Dogs


Alaskan Malamute. He was returned to his breeder after his owners had a new baby and felt they no longer had time for him.


Staffordshire Mix. I co-own Ellie with a former client who developed medical problems and could no longer care for her full time. Ellie is very lucky to have two moms who love her.


American Pitbull Terrier. He was adopted when his time ran out at a local shelter.


WONDER is my newest rescue dog. She is a 1yr old Alaskan Malamute, full of energy and ready to work. I drove half-way to Michigan to get her from her original owner who could not manage her size, strength and energy level. Although she is a handful, she has proven it was well worth the trip. I have already tried her at sledding and she loved it and caught on to commands quickly. Soon I will be starting her in weight pulling. I am looking forward to a very busy 2013/2014 season with her.
