Shannon is a Licensed Veterinary Technician with twenty years of experience handling and working with a variety of animals. She has a certification in low stress animal handling and brings with her a vast amount of knowledge of veterinary handling procedures and animal behavior. Shannon also is well versed in fear based behaviors and how force free, fear free training can assist in building a great relationship between the dog, family and professional staff. She is experienced in handling reactive and fearful dogs and brings that level of compassion and empathy to the table. She lives with a crazy GSD who is keeping her refreshed and well versed in training techniques and teaches her daily what is important in life. Two children, a cat and a workaholic husband (whom she met when they were seven) round out her life and help her train to the unforeseen variables. Shannon keeps the administrative wheels rolling with scheduling and problem solving.
