Home – About

Hi! I’m Shannon and I’ve been running K9 Satsifaction for over 11 years. I have a passion for dogs and love to bring them to their best potential. Puppy raising, training and play is a passionate hobby that has become my source of income. Exercise and activity trips are a healthy way to keep any dog in a more balanced state of mind.

I also work with many “issue” dogs helping their owners understand their particular dog, problem solve their approach and create solid replacement behaviors for the dog to resort to. I balance my approach with healthy exercise/activities, continued training, text support for the owners and visits. I love to help people find a better balance with their particular dog!

We are happy to have plenty of vacation guests coming over this summer! 

I wanted to post a friendly reminder that we dont take in dogs that have separation anxiety or containment anxiety. All the dogs live with us and are within hearing distance at all times. We keep a friendly and relaxed atmosphere here so that all the humans and dogs are comfortable :) 

Dogs who are used to sleeping with their owners tend to develop separation anxiety when away from their owners. We cant sleep with all the dogs coming over so we ask that your dog is used to sleeping by themselves (or with their doggy sibling!) so that they feel comfortable and happy here.

I am a huge advocate for meeting your dogs needs with walks, playtime, affection, relationship building, dog park runs, fun training etc. Part of that is also making sure they have designated relaxation time and can handle not being the center of attention too. This would look like sectioning off a section of the house (we use the living room with couches!) for their rest time and going about your day for a few hours while they take a nap or listen to the flow of the family. They shouldnt pace, whine or bark during this time and should be redirected to go lay down to relax if they do. 

Have great fun with your dog, play with them as much as you want. Just make sure they can stop when you say stop and dont demand more. Same with attention/affection, give them their turn and make sure they can be quiet when others are getting a turn :) ❤️

 If your dog starts developing separation anxiety here, which typically increases in intensity and peaks at day 3-5, they will either need to find a different boarding place or (if I have the availability and have babysitters) will be charged training rates so I have the time to both exercise them thoroughly(healthy energy outlet for anxiety) and teach them to go lay down/relax while I do other activities.

If you plan on sending your dog to board here and they struggle with any of this please let me know ASAP so we can get them on the right path. If you have a dog that meets these requirements we would love to have them over and give them an enjoyable and relaxing vacation :) We love family friendly pups!!

I also offer dog park runs for anyone in for boarding that need some extra exercise!! 😁

Duke, Sadie and Knox have all been coming here for years and are now in for their spring break vacation spending a relaxing time at our house. ❤️ They are all dogs who like to hang out together without feeling the need to interact physically with other dogs. This is very normal, especially after about two years old many dogs would rather play ball, chew on bones and just hang out around family. Many dogs (including my own) prefer touch from people rather than other dogs 😄❤️❤️ We love all these guys and are so happy when we get to see the same dogs every year 🥰 See MoreSee Less

It brings me great joy to see my old shepherd Loyal playing tug with Sully, a young chocolate lab. His owners are dog enthusiasts and long time clients. Sully knows the same tug rules as our dogs to only bite the tug. When learning to play here: if anyone starts getting too competitive/vocal I ask for a drop and then allow play again soon after. But these guys are already doing fantastic.

Loyal needs steady encouragement from me (e.g. good dogs) to get started playing with a dog other than his siblings. I love to see him lose the tug and still play by the rules and only go for the tug. Sully has been a great addition to our group to get more dogs playing tug. Good dogs!!

I love this!!!!! Thank you Loyal for entertaining Sully Bug 💛 We love to see how well he interacts with dogs of all ages and sizes.

Dolly watched the video with great interest–she wanted to join in on the fun so she brought her own toy, all on her own.🥰 (Brett Spriester, Julie Kallas)

It is great to see Sully being a puppy but learning at the same time. Good boy! ❤️ Gram

While deep cleaning my living room Sierra and Bella relax with my dogs in a smaller area. We love these girls so much. They have become part of our dog family. Their dog social skills are amazing, they listen fantastic, play and relax nicely. They are some of our favorite pups to join us. Good girls ❤️❤️
