Source of Inspiration

Recently retired from a 30-year career in law enforcement as a police officer, Shawn's journey into dog training began with a rescue German Shepherd that had experienced multiple owners due to anxiety, reactivity, and aggression. The pivotal moment occurred when, under the guidance of his department's K9 Master Trainer, he started training Fitz. This experience ignited his passion, leading to certifications through Leerburg University and extensive research on modifying dog behavior through training.
