I don't pull on my walks anymore!

Just when we thought there was no hope for our 3 year old black lab named Gus, we met Shannon!


Gus had a couple of issues that we honestly thought we would always have to just live with. He was a big barker and puller on the leash which made it very embarrassing to take him out in public.

Shannon told me that Gus would stop barking within 5 minutes of being in her training class. I really didn't believe her but thought it was worth a shot. Sure enough we arrived at the hall and she showed me what to do when he barked and IT WORKED!

He was also one of those dogs that took us for a walk, which unfortunately resulted in him not getting the exercise he truly needed. After a couple of classes Gus was walking nicely NEXT to me. He now walks everyday and is a joy to walk.

Thank you Shannon for all your help with Gus - you are an awesome trainer and you really know your stuff!

Gus
by: Grandma

I am a very proud grandmother of Gus. When I went to his first class, I wasn't expecting too much. Gus had an issue of barking at everyone and anything that walked. While standing outside and watching other dogs approach Gus, he kept barking. Shannon came over and showed Gus he could just sit there and not have to bark. Right then I knew Gus was going to pass his class as he sat there after 5 min. and was so good. I knew you could do it Gus and thanks to Shannon you have become a quieter, gentle dog and we all love you for that. You are a grand-dog to be proud of.
