Shannon is an animal lover who has always had dogs as part of her family and who considers her dogs her children. Never venturing past standard obedience training in the past, she first sought out DockDogs hoping to add to the socialization of her somewhat timid yellow lab, Lucy. Lucy, already a great swimmer, took to the dock with enthusiasm. Her second dog, Coco, loves the water but is still working at being brave enough to jump off the dock.
Away from the dock Shannon is also on the Board of Directors of SniffAZ, a charity that works to fund free and low cost spay/neuter services in Maricopa County. She loves to travel the world and is lucky enough to do so as part of her job. In her down time enjoys golfing with her husband, drinking good wine, and watching football and hockey.
