Brinna Shannon has been working with pet dogs in Tacoma for 5 years. She has one dog—a work-in-progress rescue who keeps life interesting. She believe that while most dogs are born easy to love, they aren’t always born easy to live with. She’d like to help families bridge that gap.
Brinna has worked with dogs of every shape, size, temperament and energy level with issues from anxiety and aggression to the basics of socialization and manners that make dogs a joy to be around. Brinna has spent the last few years traveling with her dog, collecting experiences, and learning. She has worked with feral and exotic cats, practiced natural horsemanship under a master, and—most recently—spent 2 years working at organic goat dairies.
