Here is what some of my clients have to say:
I have a miniature dachshund Franki and I've been using Shannon since puppy school to help me train her. After puppy school we did 2 in home sessions.
Now Franki is older I have also done another in home assessment and training one on one at home with Shannon as Franki has separation anxiety. Shannon informed me we needed to address this in the environment in which Franki was showing her anxiety and put a program in place to address the issues.
After Shannon came to visit me for our in home assessment she had got me to do some great simple techniques which in 2 weeks has made a hugeeeee difference to Franki's behaviour.
It’s been hard, time consuming and for some people maybe costly, but in my eyes it’s been so so worth every cent and minute I have spent. I had slackened off on her training since puppy school and hence why her behaviour was majorly effected and her separation anxiety has been one of the hardest things to get on top of, but with Shannon's help we are getting on top of it.
There's no quick fix to behaviour problems but if you're willing to put in the time and take on the techniques then it all is worth it. I would recommend anyone to try Unleashed Dog Behavioural Training as the training and on going support is second to none.
We highly recommend Shannon from Unleashed Dog Behavioral Training to anyone who wants great training by someone who genuinely cares about dogs and gets great results.
As we both work nights, we found it very difficult to find any professional puppy training classes that were available during the day. When we found Shannon we were impressed that she was able to come and work with us in the comfort of our own home and work in with our busy schedules.
From the very beginning, Shannon has been amazing to work with.
You can tell she is very passionate about what she does because she took the time to listen to us and gave us lots of valuable information and support to ensure we had fun training our new puppy.
Juice loves her! - and he has now become a lot more obedient and relaxed and more importantly socializes really well with other dogs.
We love that he is always a huge ball of energy - but are also thankful that we now have the training to manage his high energy which means more quality time with him at the beach, out for walks and on car rides.

So glad we met Shannon!
Getting another dog was a very big deal for us. We had a Dogue de Bourdeaux who was a rescue dog. We were his fourth family in 1.5 years. He had many, many behavioural isses, the worst being his separation anxiety and fear of storms/loud noises. We battled these fears for 8 years including many close calls where he nearly died of heat-stroke as he got himself so worked up. Unfortunately we had to make the decision to give him to someone else as the constant damage to our house was just too much. My husband and I wished that we had met Shannon whilst we had Rhino as we probably would have been able to keep our big lad, rather than give him away.
We met Shannon at puppy pre-school. We instantly sae how well the puppies interacted with her and responded to her. Shannon was also very approachable and easy to talk with. We had never had a puppy before so were having some sleepless nights. We called Shannon, followed her advice and two days later... sleep-ins all around! Four months later and our puppy, a boisterous labradoodle called Pickles, is still sleeping soundly.
After puppy school, Pickles was jumping on and nipping our 7 year old daughter, to the point where she was scared to go outside on her own and wasn't really enjoying her puppy. He was also fond of digging and basically trying to run our house. We have been seeing Shannon for behavioural training for four weeks now and we are definately seeing results. Our daughter is no longer scared to go outside and we no longer have a puppy who enjoys 'gardening'! Pickles is learning his place and is no longer nipping. Whilst Pickles still has a long way to go, as he is only 5 months of age, we are far more confident now and are enjoying having him around.
Our daughter is so confident with him now that she is participating in training!
We enjoy working with Shannon and working towards having a happy, well-trained pooch.

We arranged for Shannon to visit our home on the first day that our puppy Coco joined our family. Shannon's expertise and advice was invaluable every step of the way. Puppy school and additional house visits after we were settled in were a lifesaver in resolving issues that had arisen since Day 1. We constantly ask ourselves "What would Shannon do?" to keep us on track and stay in charge of our furry friend.
