Meet Our Training Expert 


Shawn Riley is an experienced dog trainer who began working with dogs from a very young age. His training methods were so successful, that dog owners started approaching him at the park to help with their dogs. That was 40 years ago. Since then, Shawn has been  refining his training methods and developing multiple boarding facilities.

Clients choose Shawn for his unique methods, which work in concert with a dog’s natural behavior in a pack setting, dubbed by Shawn as The Dog Way. Shawn is always available to answer questions and provides a free consultation so dog owners can work with him to create the best training plan for their dogs.
