THE PUPPY PUZZLE

train, teach and support your dog to THRIVE in any environment!

WHAT IF HELPING YOUR DOG TO THRIVE IN LIFE WAS AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3?

Are you a dog parent? Either with a new pup or with a more mature dog, who is confused about how to train them in a way that is kind, clear AND effective?

Are you unsure about your approach and frustrated with certain behavior issues that you just can’t seem to solve?

Are you overwhelmed with the advice from all the ‘guru’s’ out there who all seem to contradict one another about how to do it ‘right’ and don’t know where to start?

The Puppy Puzzle is here to help.

WE WANT TO DO IT RIGHT. BUT HOW?

As dog parents we want to do right by our beloved animals – and want to be sure that we are giving them as many beneficial tools as we can in order to help them thrive in our human world …

But there is SO much information out there about how to do it. It’s enough to drive a pup parent crazy – or to freeze us in our tracks from TOO MUCH INFORMATION.

But what if giving our dogs the tools they need to succeed, to become happy, well balanced, confident and masterful was SIMPLE? Simple like 1, 2, 3?

It is. I’m Sharon Dilley and I know, because I’ve trained countless dogs over the last decade and I’ve discovered a simple, yet super effective training process that invites and encourages our dogs to become their best selves. At ANY age!

I call it The Puppy Puzzle. And once you know and understand how to put the pieces together, you’ll be able to train, teach and support your dog to THRIVE in any environment AND create a beautiful and powerful friendship in the process.

SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE

The power of the Puppy Puzzle lies in its simplicity. Rooted in THREE fundamentals, that compliment any training program you may already be using. These important basics assist you in helping your dog shape confidence, awareness and self-mastery so he (and you) can thrive in any situation.

PIECE #1:

CONNECTION

Puppies and dogs love their humans and desire to be with them and please them. Using connection as the first piece in your training program fosters fun and the willingness to work together to learn the life skills that are essential to thriving in a human world.

PIECE #2:

MEETING THEIR

NEEDS

A pup who learns quickly that they do not have to advocate for themselves, because their staunchest ally (the human holding the leash) is going to make sure they have time for all of the important things dogs love: sniffing, digging, chewing, running and playing … creating a well-rounded and confident dog.

PIECE #3: SET UP

THE ENVIRONMENT

FOR SUCCESS

This final fundamental is the piece of regulating the environment until the pup learns to regulate themselves. Here we provide structure and freedom so our dog can figure things out, building manners and life skills so they can navigate confidently in whatever situation they may find themselves in.

The Puppy Puzzle will help you and your dog discover:

N

Beneficial Life skills and manners to navigate any situation

N

Calm as a default behavior which means a happier and healthier relationship

N

Ways to shape positive strategies and solution finding to solve any puppy problems that arise.

N

Deeper connection that shapes the ultimate partnership

N

A peaceful and settled home environment

N

How to read one another well, to deepen the understanding and communication between you

N

Impulse control that shapes empowered choices and confidence

N

Trust in one another that brings out the best in both of you

N

How to move away from stressful situations with grace and no drama

N

An awareness of what your dog needs in any moment in order to succeed

N

Confidence that you can go anywhere and do anything … and do it well!

… and so much more!

The simple yet powerful pieces of The Puppy Puzzle have helped people from all walks of life, including Veterans and Special needs folks, Elite K9 Search and Rescue Teams and regular dog parents tap into rewarding and inspiring partnerships that continue to grow and evolve over time. It can do the same for you and your dog.

“In 2015 the Office of the State Fire Marshal became the Administrative Agency responsible for the search & rescue program in Kansas. Sharon served on our team for several years as a canine handler and training coordinator.  Dedication to her craft and her ability to read and understand canine behavior was invaluable to our young team.  Sharon’s passion and expertise in handling and training dogs helped to develop our canine search team into one of the finest in the country!”

Randy Hill

Search & Rescue Coordinator, State of Kansas

“Stillwater” Sharon is an amazing K9 trainer/handler and an even greater person to know and be friends with. Having the opportunity to meet Sharon when I was a Live-Scent K9 handler with Oklahoma USAR Task Force One (OKC) has been a wonderful experience for me personally. She works hard daily with the animals she is training and/or utilizing and is very successful in what she does. She has a heart of gold and the patience of a saint.

Jason K. Smith

Former K9 Handler of Jagger (2007-2018), Oklahoma Urban Search and Rescue Task Force 1 - OKC

“I am so grateful to Sharon for being such a generous trainer who was so willing to share her dog training skills and knowledge with a newbie when I started showing up at the KSTF trainings. If we had more people like her this world we would be in so much better shape!!”

Scott Burger

Kansas Task Force Canine Handler

“I have trained with Sharon for years and have evaluated her and her K9’s for Search and Rescue Certifications. She is a highly skilled trainer with the ability to maximize her dogs talents.”

Mark Edwards

Retired OKTF-1 Canine Handler / USAR Evaluator

“Sharon is a tenacious soul. She held her own on the rubble pile amongst a group of seasoned Fire fighters and trained and certified two raw dogs. This is a difficult task and only reserved for experience USAR handlers that had certified a previous canine. She was one of our most devout handlers and showed up to every training, no matter what the weather. If this was not impressive enough, she took her knowledge learned on the rubble pile, and began training service dog for Veterans. Sharon has a true servants heart and I am proud to call her a friend and master handler.”
