Courses and Workshops

  • The Foundation Behavior Course is designed so you can train your dog basic behaviors from your home when it is convenient for you! In this course you will learn how to teach your dog to sit, down, stay, come, the beginning of heel and more. Shannon will teach you how to train these basic behaviors using positive, force free training techniques.
  • Having a reactive dog can be frustrating, overwhelming and in some cases it can be scary!  Shannon has helped thousands of reactive dogs and their people by teaching the people that this is commonly caused by fear.  This program is a replica of what she does during a private one on one session.  If you have a reactive dog, this course will help you understand why the behaviors are happening and how you can help without having to leave your home (which can be difficult with a dog that is reactive).

  • In this course, Shannon Riley (Coyner) discusses what goes into being a positive reinforcement animal trainer. Because dog trainers are the most common, she will focus on dogs primarily but this could apply to equine, Feline and Bird and other trainings as well. This course will include educational webinars, several video lectures and will also include some training courses. Shannon encourages you to practice training with multiples dogs during this course so you can have a full understanding of what is involved in being a positive reinforcement animal trainer!
