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!
Stirner our border collie loves working and is learning to work for our four year old daughter, Sophy! Super fun to have Sophy take over and she knows exactly what to expect of him. Stirner will follow her everywhere off leash to play some fetch and get some pets! ❤️ … See MoreSee Less

Love it! She’s a natural just like her mom!
lol I wish my dog could listen like that
Sophy is so grown up! 💖
Cooper here (10 month, intact, Welsh Springer Spaniel) has been fantastic to work with! His owners have given him a great foundation. Day 7 here and he is showing great reliability and a responsive attitude off-leash.
A couple of their main concerns are to make sure he listens well off-leash and doesn’t chase any wildlife. Here is a quick video showing his understanding and response to low level ecollar stim (level 8 out of 100) at second 52 and 1:06. Also a quick demonstration of him waiting his turn for fetch, which is his biggest enjoyment in life. He is now to the point I can typically talk to him a little firm and he will listen without even needing corrections. He needed some correction to finish up his heel/down and work on some impulsive chasing/jumping, which he responded really well too.
This dog is so fun to play fetch with. Bringing it back repeatedly for praise/pets, he was clearly bred for retrieving. Absolutely a joy to work with, he loves attention and touch so loves to work. He hates when I hold a phone in front of my face but is entertaining me anyway. Such a good boy ❤️❤️ Love this guy. … See MoreSee Less
He’s so cute too! What a good boy!
Thank you Shannon. Looking forward to working with Cooper at home. He’s been a real fun little guy to own. Love the breed. So different from our Labrador Retrievers.
He’s sensitive like our Teddy! 🥰
We invited some extra friends over today for a canine mingle and to double as helpers to work on my board and train Cooper’s social skills and entertain boarding guests Pip, Posey and River. Very fun day, nice vibes from everyone, lots of smiles and wags! Thanks for sharing your sweet pups everyone ❤️❤️ … See MoreSee Less
Some of Busters best play caught on recording throughout his stay here! He found that playing tug with Stirner is his favorite thing to do! We worked a bit on not jumping at dogs to start play. He was able to back off really well whenever I was watching. Very fun week having this guy over 🙂
P.s. Yes, we vacuum pretty much every day but there is always a mess of fluffs and dog hair unless I JUST vacuumed the moment before recording 🤦♀️ so please be as tolerant as I am 😆 … See MoreSee Less
Busters videos don’t do him justice! My phone didn’t save his most enthusiastic recordings but he is such a good boy and did it all over again for me the same day all while it was raining! Here are some examples of his house manners(waiting at doorways, not jumping for attention), sit/down stay, recall, play and his mentality after all his hard work and fun play shows what great potential he has. I am really enjoying this puppy. Good boy Busters!☺️ … See MoreSee Less
I want busters!!
