Shawn O’Riley is an experienced dog trainer who began working with dogs at the age of 16 when his sister gave him a puppy from her dog’s litter. His training methods were so successful, that dog owners started approaching him at the park to train their dogs. That was 30 years ago. Since then, Shawn has refined his training methods and developed a dog boarding facility in Tualatin to serve Portland area dog owners.

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.
