Puppies are so cute but also so challenging at times. Shannon’s courses provided both me and my puppy with the necessary foundation and skills required to develop a happy, confident and well behaved adult dog. Each of the courses offered are very informative while being fun at the same time. Shannon’s extensive knowledge and kind approach brings the most out of any owner/dog combo.

My sister and I had reached out to Shannon at Zen Dog for our dog Friday, a rescue who was living on the streets in Asia. Our focus was Friday's reactivity to other dogs while she is on leash; specifically, lunging, barking, and over excitement. We had 5 training sessions and the overall experience was phenomenal! I have gained confidence as a dog owner and now have the resources available to guide Friday. Friday has been great on her leashed walks and is now able to greet dogs on leash. Shannon's detailed homework emails also provide additional training material for us to continue learning. Overall, the training has been the best investment.Definitely recommend Zen Dog and Shannon as she really takes the time to understand your pet and what areas they need help with. Her passion to help really shines and it is always a great time for Friday and us when we have a training session!

What makes a great teacher/trainer? Someone who not only teaches you but also motivates you to learn and improve. Both Shannon and Jennifer do exactly that. They are extremely knowledgeable and are always there to support you! My puppy and I still have a long journey ahead of us and we look forward to many more classes at Zen Dog. Thank you Shannon and Jennifer.

Zen dog classes are amazing! They really challenged our dog and taught him practical and fun skills to take out into the world. Would highly recommend the classes, especially if you have an active dog!

I have never ever found another trainer to be of the caliber of Zen Dog. It changed my life and my dog Evies life forever. We have done group classes, private, dropin weekend group classes and packwalks and we love them all. I have had the fortunate opportunity to work with both Shannon and Jen, they are both such incredible women. They are the most experienced, dog savvy, enthusiastic, patient and caring trainers ever. They truly excel in their knowledge of dog behavior, communication and training, as well as nutrition, treats, gear, the list is endless! They are magnificent teachers both for people and the dogs. I was recommended to call zen dog from various dog owners around the city who raved about their skills and knowledge and experience. I have a challenging female dog that has reactivity and resource guarding issues, I'm not sure where either of us would be today without the help of ZenDog. They have helped me so much and with all they have taught me I continue to learn and grow and challenge myself to become the eperienced dog handler Evie needs and deserves. I have moved from Vancouver for now and one of the things I miss the most is to not be able to continue to work with Zendog. They have so many interesting, stimulating and challenging classes there is something for everyone!!!! I would be happy to ever talk in person or email for a personal referall. Zendog is the best!!!!!

I had the good fortune of attending Shannon's classes and also had multiple private sessions. Shannon is extremely knowledgable and passionate about dogs/dog training. She is first class!

I’ve adopted and fostered multiple dogs in the past 20 years and taken them all to training classes, from many different companies. Shannon and Zendog are by far the best. Shannon’s decades of experience and incredible talent as a coach and dog trainer make her classes a joy to take. I learn so much every time and I know I can trust Shannon to meet every dog and handler wherever we are. She leaves nobody behind, provides twice ad much information as any other classes I’ve taken, and somehow ensures neither dogs nor humans get bored. I’ve done everything from puppy classes to advanced obedience to reactive dog classes to private lessons with Shannon, and referred many friends there over the years. Shannon gives an outstanding experience and excellent value every single class. It is especially important to get early training and socialization right with young puppies, and Shannon’s puppy classes are by far the safest and best place I've found to make sure that happens.

Shannon is a master. Her alternative methods make her training very special and unique. She empowers the dog and the owner to have a healthy relationship based on respect for one another, and choices, versus fear-based training. I highly recommend Shannon if you are getting a new puppy or trying to integrate a second dog into your home. The education she provides will last a lifetime.

Zen Dog Canine Training is one of the best I experienced with my reactive dog. Shannon is a great trainer, knowledgeable, patient, and very supportive. Her classes are always fun for dogs and their people. I learned a lot from the training sessions as well as from the private classes. . I can always count on the constructive feedback from Shannon, and support in sometimes hard reality owning a reactive dog. I am very happy that I found the Zen Dog Canine Training and will continue to work with Shannon.

I have been taking my feisty young terrier mix dog to Shannon's Saturday morning Skills & Drills Power Hour for the past few months and it has been a game changer for us. He went from being unable to be close to the other dogs and having to do the exercises 20 feet away from the group, to being able to walk past dogs, in between dogs, towards dogs, all a couple of feet away from him with no issues. This class was exactly what we needed for him to feel more comfortable around other dogs and I am so grateful for Shannon's knowledge and encouragement. Shannon has years and years of dog training experience and it shows!! Sylvie Fefer

Shannon is the BEST dog trainer! She has worked with us for years - with our older pup and now our new little guy. She is thorough, thoughtful, clear and kind. I recommend her without hesitation.

This past weekend a fellow dog sport competitor lost her brand new puppy and her home to a house fire on Vancouver Island. To even begin to understand her loss is beyond words and anyone with a dog can only imagine this as being their worst nightmare.I host monthly group pack walks for my clients and others who want a safe and structured event to socialize their dogs via parallel walking. These walks are great for insecure dogs, dogs that love other dogs and other people, and dogs that just enjoy getting out to walk and enjoy this beautiful city. We pick a place to meet up, and then enjoy a lovely walk for an hour through a location I choose in Vancouver. It is a super fun social event to chat all things dogs and meet new people. The cost for the walk is $15.My next walk will be this coming Sunday, December 17th (location to be determined). All funds raised for this walk will go to Kat and Sam for their tragic losses.Everyone please feel free to join us and let's make this walk the biggest ever. Often my walks have upward of 15 people and dogs. Let's try and double that this coming weekend.If you are interested, please email me at k9@zendogtraining.com and I will add you to the list!NOW....we need to pray for nice weather!
