Shannon has been a dog lover for as long as she can remember. Shannon grew up with dogs, and as an adult started fostering dogs for German Shepherd Rescue and Adoptions in 2004.
Shannon became interested in training to make her foster dogs more adoptable. In 2012, her love of training led her to leave her Project Management job in order to become a Certified Dog Trainer. Shannon kept following her passions, and leveraged her experiences to become an owner and operator of Dog Training Camp in 2014.
Shannon loves to help dogs and dog owners achieve their full potential by teaching owners how to better communicate with their dogs.
Shannon enjoys off leash hiking with her pack, and nothing beats a good outdoor concert. She is still involved with rescue groups and fostering, boasting how therapeutic it is to give back to dogs in need.
