Sheila Lewonski, Owner, Groomer & Trainer

Sheila has been involved in the pet industry since 1986, and professionally grooming since 1991. Since her youth, she has always had an interest in dogs, and she attended college in pursuit of a career working with dogs, receiving an Associate's Degree in Canine Science from Newbury College.


Sheila is extensively educated in dog training, behavior, psychology, and grooming. She is a member of The Dog Groomers Association and the American Pet Dog Training, as well as a certified Canine Good Citizen evaluator. She frequently attends seminars and training to update her education and to keep current with the latest techniques.


Nowadays, in addition to grooming and training, she is active in competing her own dogs in AKC obedience, rally, and tracking.

She has built a loyal clientele with her grooming talents and gentle handling with the dogs. She presently lives with a sweet miniature schnauzer named Peanut.
