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.
With three years of experience as a dog trainer, Shawn has achieved certifications in various areas, including Puppies 8 wks-12 Months, Puppy Socialization, Aggressive -Dominant Dogs, Beginner and Intermediate Obedience, Leash Reactivity, and Loose Leash Walking. His professional journey began in law enforcement, where he acquired valuable skills that now contribute to his approach as a dog trainer.
While enjoying training everything from basic to advanced levels, Shawn has a particular affinity for working with dogs displaying reactivity towards other dogs, addressing all leash walking issues, and providing advanced recall training. His specialization covers a range of areas, reflecting a comprehensive approach to dog training.
Looking ahead, in the next 5 to 10 years, Shawn envisions continuing to contribute to the well-being of families by helping them fulfill their dreams of having a happy, confident, and thinking dog. This long-term goal reflects his commitment to ongoing growth and making a positive impact in the field of dog training.
