Sean Shields

Sean was born in El Paso, TX and since his dad was in the Army, Sean had to move a lot. For the better part of his life, Sean grew up in Arizona. At the age of 21, he got married to Breanna in Prescott, AZ. Shortly after, Sean decided to enlist into the Army as a Cavalry Scout in 2010. Sean was stationed in Ft. Drum in New York. Sean deployed to Afghanistan in 2013. After his deployment, he and his wife decided that they were sick of the tundra and moved back to sunny Phoenix, AZ. Sean prides himself on loyalty and always willing to lend a helping hand. Sean is an apprentice trainer, working on his CPDT certification to give back to fellow veterans through service dog training. Sean jokes that he loves dogs more than humans
