About Me

Training Dogs, Teaching Humans, Trusting Instincts

With over 20 years' experience, we use a balanced training approach and specialize in sporting dogs and bully breeds. With specific focus on handling reactivity issues and aggression.
I completed my first apprenticeship program at the Academy of Canine Behavior in Bothell, WA, after which I went on to begin my own training business. I've trained under world renowned pit-bull trainer, Diane Jessup. Under her leadership I was able to be a part of the rehabilitation of the Michael Vick fighting dogs.
I was also able to successfully title my American bulldog, Tank, which I produced and owned, and who is the inspiration and face of The Dog Tank.
From 2006-2012 I was also the regional representative for the APA organization (a National Weight-Pulling Strong-Dog competition). 
In 2017, I entered a second apprenticeship program to refresh my skills on updated, positive reinforcement-based training methods at Riverdog in Issaquah, WA. Shortly after, I returned to Lewis County and started training under my own brand, Dog Training by Shane. In November, 2020 I opened The Dog Tank training facility where I host my group classes and private lessons.
With my experience, success, attention to detail and love for canines I am a competent and trustworthy choice to care for and train your beloved pet.

Dog Portrait

“Because dogs live in the present. Because dogs don’t hold grudges. Because dogs let go of all their anger daily, hourly, and never let it fester. They absolve and forgive with each passing minute. Every turn of a corner is the opportunity for a clean slate. Every bounce of a ball brings joy and the promise of a fresh chase.”
