Owner, Shanell says,

๐Ÿ—จ"At K918 we donโ€™t believe in 'cookie cutter' style dog training, our packages are as unique as our training methods.

We understand that every owner will have different expectations for their dog based on their own personal lifestyle, and we want their dog to fit into that lifestyle as seamlessly as possible. Every dog is different, so every training package is different."

Graduation day for Puddin. Big shout out to K918 Dog Training located just east of Mannford. In 4 classes we went from a wild, jerk your arm out of the socket walk and load my 76 # butt in the jeep. To a no tug leash walk and single command leap in the jeep. Shannell (I hope I spelled that right) did awesome in explaining how the dogs understood and responded to commands. It was worth every penny to have a professional tell us how to work with our dog. And yes, that is Puddin's happy face. Thank you for showing us we had a even greater dog than we thought.

Tulsa's go to balanced dog trainer. My goal is to help frustrated dog owners become confident dog L

Training a hyper GOLDEN DOODLE - Riley, Day 1


Say hello to Riley! Picked up this wild man 2 weeks ago, I'm trying to get better at showing progress as we go so y'all get more of an insider look of how I structure my board & train programs.

He's already doing SO much better! Very close to being fully off leash reliable.

Training a hyper GOLDEN DOODLE - Riley, Day 1 We all know doodles are pretty crazy right? Riley's not the worst I've seen, but his owners are in their 60's and just can't physically handle him without ri...

Why would your dog want to come running to someone they donโ€™t trust yet?

Iโ€™m just sayin!

Beware of the franchise training companies out there, this is what they do.

This isnโ€™t the prettiest graph but hopefully it gets the point across๐Ÿ˜‚

Do infants & toddlers ever go extended periods of time without supervision? Yes, when napping in their crateโ€ฆ.Iโ€™m sorry crib, crib. Itโ€™s definitely not the same thing as a crate.

Are toddlers ever left home alone in the middle of the living room for hours on end? No
So why do people do this with their young dogs?

Majority of problem behaviors develop from a young age simply because the dog HAS the opportunity to do them. (Chewing shoes, marking in the house, counter surfing, eating socks)


Save yourself thousands of dollars in destroyed furniture & new shoes, or expensive surgery because your dog ate yet another sock that has to be removed. Save on pricey intense training & just simply PREVENT these issues from happening in the first place.

Whats the secret to doing this?
A leash, a crate & your determination


Golden Hour with my golden boyโ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ


Guess whoโ€™s home from double ACL surgery!
Thank you Catoosa Small Animal Hospital for your wonderful staff & care for this guy, I canโ€™t tell you how much I appreciate itโค๏ธ

Next up, the long 12 week road to recovery!


Dropped Bubba off for surgery this morning, truly not stressed or worried about It but good thoughts are always welcome our way.โค๏ธ


Please do your FULL research on a specific breed before deciding to get one!


What would YOU see in the mirror!?


Thatโ€™s my main desire anyway

What would YOU see in the mirror!?


This is still so wild to meโ€ฆ.

I thought moving to Oklahoma 7 hours away from home to go to college at the ripe age of 18 was the scariest thing I had ever done. But it turns out quitting your secure full time job to chase your dream is SO mich scarier.

There are still days when I doubt myself & wonder if Iโ€™ll really succeed in this business, I donโ€™t always know what Iโ€™m doing or how Iโ€™m going to hit my next milestone.

But I show up every day & I try.

I try for the owners who feel like thereโ€™s no hope with their dogs.
I try to make my parents proud of what Iโ€™ve accomplished.
I try for the little 6 year old girl teaching her Jack Russell to play dead in the living room (thats me ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธbtw!)

Thank you again to every single person that has supported me along this journey.

And if you have a life long dream YOU want to chase, stop worrying about failing, thatโ€™s going to happen no matter what. Go out & do it anyway, learn from those failures, pick yourself back up & try again.

POV youโ€™re a ball on the ground and one of these guys is about to sn**ch you up.

Which one are you choosing?
Team Champ๐Ÿฆฎ
Team Roman ๐Ÿ…(tiger emoji looks most like him)


The quickest way to undo all the hard work youโ€™ve been doing & ruin the relationship you have with your dog?

DOG PARKSโ€ฆhereโ€™s 4 reasons why

1) If your dog doesnโ€™t get attacked, you got lucky. Dog fights happen here more often than you think
2) Your dog could be exposed to a mess of sicknesses or diseases
3) Youโ€™re teaching your dog that other dogs are more interesting than YOU, pretty soon theyโ€™re dragging you across the street on your walks to see every dog that walks by
4) Or worse, they develop leash reactivity because now theyโ€™re pi**ed you wonโ€™t let them go play with the other dogs

A well socialized dog is not one that wants to be best friends with every dog or person you encounter, itโ€™s one that can acknowledge their presence but remain neutral around any dog or person.

Train or play with your dog OUTSIDE of the dog park, theyโ€™re great distractions you can use to level up your training.


Food is okay, but I have found play to be way more successful. A stressed dog may not take food, now how do you reward them?

Why does play work so well?

๐ŸพBuilds a relationship with the owner
๐ŸพPlay is fun, who doesnโ€™t like to have fun?
๐ŸพIt allows the dog to let loose & move around
๐Ÿพ It keeps them occupied on an activity WITH you
๐Ÿพ Takes their mind off whatever is so scary to them
๐Ÿพ Allows them to achieve something (a bite, a catch) which is empowering

Most importantly it releases a spike of dopamine in their brain. when used correctly & efficiently play can actually make dogs enjoy (or at least not mind) being around something that once terrified them.

Have a dog thatโ€™s terrified of something in this world? I HIGHLY recommend building their play drive rather than their food drive.


One of the best things you can teach your dog or puppy is how to have an off switch.

No living creature can sustain being high energy alllllll the time, eventually they will crash. Most dogs turn into turds when theyโ€™re over tired.

Place is great when you CAN supervise, but if you have to jump in the shower, clean up the house, do anything where you canโ€™t keep eyes on your puppy like a hawk they need to go in the kennel.


I would say this is as open minded as it gets when it comes to training tools! I really did use a frying pan to teach him this as a puppy. Right in the middle of my apartment living room in Little Rock Arkansasโ€ฆweโ€™ve come so far๐Ÿฅฒ

Training gear can be expensive, but donโ€™t let that hold you back from training your dog.

GET CREATIVE!! Find things around your home you can use in new ways.

What are the weird tools youโ€™ve used for training?
I can always use a good laugh๐Ÿ˜‚


You want your dog to walk next to you on walks right? Well then we gotta TEACH them where they should be!!

This is my โ€œtouchโ€ command that Iโ€™ve been working on with Roman since he was a puppy. THIS is why he walks so well on leash.

You donโ€™t have to be this picky when it comes to your dogโ€™s heel position, but I will say it really helps the dogs learn faster if you are a little picky. A lot of my clients say โ€œI just want my dog to walk in this general area when weโ€™re on walksโ€โ€ฆwhich is totally fine, but dogs have a hard time learning this so called โ€œgeneral area.โ€ They will learn better if you teach them precisely where they should be (then you can be more lax down the road)

So to make it as easy as possible on the dogs, I teach them EXACTLY where I want them to be before we even put the leash on.

Lure them into position then โœจBAMโœจ reward.
Lure them from a different position then โœจBAMโœจ another reward.

Pretty soon youโ€™re dog will learn, โ€œwow every time I stand next to her I get a snack, thatโ€™s a great place to stand!โ€

Next step? Put your dogโ€™s leash on & start walking forward, theyโ€™ll probably stick pretty close your side waiting for those snacks!

Save this post! Try it during your next training session & tag me so I can see yโ€™all working!!!


Am I wrong to say this applies to any shepherd, not the just German flavor?

Or is that just my experience?๐Ÿ˜‚

If youโ€™re not a Harry Potter fan you wonโ€™t get this at all๐Ÿ˜‚

But let me explain whatโ€™s going on to all you muggles out there๐Ÿ˜‰

This spell is used to keep the โ€œdemonsโ€ away & will actually force them away from your space.

Would this come in handy for you & your dogs?๐Ÿค”


Check out the amazing results our clients are getting!!!!

Courtney & Garrett are living their BEST life with Tucker now, they're able to take him everywhere with them and he is 100% reliable off leash, even with distractions like squirrels.

Here's something that may surprise you, this was not accomplished through obedience training. Obedience plays an important role in dog training but it's more about the overall relationship you have with your dog. You may train your dog for 1 hour every day, but what are you doing in those other 23 hours? That's the bigger picture.

That's what we specialize in, the big picture.

If you want this kind of life with your dog, give us a phone call today!

I know how frustrating it can be to deal with any one of these issues, and when you find yourself dealing with more than one? FUGGETABOUTIT!!

You got a dog to enjoy life together right? So why does it instead feel like a huge load of stress was just added to your life when they joined the family?

Trainers are here for you! We donโ€™t post these videos of our dogs doing a fancy heel & living their best off leash life to show off. We want to show you that YOU can also attain this level of happiness & freedom with your dog! You donโ€™t have to feel stuck in your current situation, weโ€™re here to help you achieve YOUR goals, no matter how crazy they may seem.

Get started TODAY by scheduling a phone consultation so we can discuss your goals!



Some comic relief for you, but also informational.

Iโ€™m a very open minded person & I carry this trait into training as well. For the most part I know which tools & methods work best for majority of dogs, but Iโ€™m also willing to try things that are out of the box if/when those donโ€™t work for a specific dog. Dogs are individuals so itโ€™s my job to cater to their individual needs & figure out what works best for them AND the owner.
