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!

Most of you know I’m about ready to pop with a baby! I appreciate everyone being so understanding about my needing to take a break from running K9 Satisfaction as I prepare for this new little life!

That being said, one of our close regulars recently got a new puppy and we needed to have him over for a few hours! Please welcome little Sully the chocolate lab who was thrilled to come for a fun play and social visit. His family is ahead of the game teaching him all his basics, manners and potty training. This guy will be such a fantastic addition to all our regulars for daycare and boarding. Looking forward to seeing him more after my maternity leave 🥰

Over the years I have heard the common misconception that playing tug with your dog is "bad".

This can be true to some degree if you are really heightening the play in a competitive way or don’t have any control of when/what the dog can bite. The former can confuse the dog leading to a conflict, whether with you or just with people outside his immediate friend bubble. The latter can create a dog who grabs anything you have, whenever they want, won’t let go, bossy barks and guards items. But having a balanced game of tug is actually a very healthy outlet and can be done with any breed of dog.

Here is a great example of an "end result" obedience that your dog should be capable of doing if needed. Here Bliss our Malinois/Shepherd mix demonstrates the "drop", "bring it here" and "down" while playing with my four year old daughter Sophy. Getting this result looks different with every dog, but the foundation is a fun relationship building outlet for you and your dog. Playing this way also helps teach impulse control, solid listening skills and giving up possession of items all while having fun!

I specialize in helping family dogs blossom in their environment. Simple things done when the puppy is young can really set them up for success with your family. Raising puppies and kids together can be challenging but so rewarding. My dogs were all adults when Sophy came into the picture which is a slower process but even more rewarding seeing them bond, love and respect her.

Thanks for watching. ❤️❤️

We were super happy to have Olive, a 7 month border collie mix, over for some positive socializing and continued manners training. This girly went from feeling petrified of new dogs to having the time of her life! Good girl Olive!

Thank you again to all my regulars who provided a fantastic social environment to help this girl blossom ❤️

We were all excited to meet Winnie who started a one week training program here yesterday. She is a super sweet girl that just needs a little help on keeping quiet, calm and focused when seeing other dogs and people. She is a bundle of fun and we are really happy to help bring out her bests. My dogs and River (who was in for boarding) all love her ❤️ See MoreSee Less
