Shannon Cole

Shannon brought home her first Aussie in 2008, and with some encouragement from friends participated in her first conformation show.  She finished her boy “Monty” with several puppy and group wins.  She was hooked!  Soon she entered the world of herding, agility, rally and obedience.  A year later she brought home a second Aussie “Brighton” for her daughter to use in the junior handling ring.  Her daughter started in the pee wee ring and continues to participate today having participated in junior handling provincials.

Shannon is an active member in her local breed club, a CKC member and  a CNASA member, as well as the Secretary/Treasurer of the Manitoba Australian Shepherd Club (ASCA).

My life with dogs started with Golden Retrievers in 1990.  I became very involved in training in obedience and developed an interest in dog sports.  I wanted a dog that I could take from the conformation ring, to the Flyball lanes, back to the obedience ring, and win!  I decided on an Australian Shepherd and Can. CH. JFCoventry’s Madeyalook CGC, TT, HIC, ASCA CD, CKC CDX, NJC, NGC, NAC, AD, AG-N, OAC, ONYX “Brodie” joined my pack.  Well you can’t have just one Aussie and soon Kinring Australian Shepherds came to be.

I have enjoyed some wonderful successes with my dogs, much of that success is due to the wonderful puppy owners that have become part of the Kinring family.  Best In Show winners, High in Trial winners, perfect 200 scores, Obedience trail champions, Rally champions, Agility trail champions, CKC and ASCA stock titles, ASCA pre show Winners Dog award,  ASCA Nationals High In Trial award, multiple Premiers, a Certified Service dog, Junior Handler dogs, and all are wonderful, loving, family members.

I am a member of ASCA, CKC, on the executive for our Manitoba ASCA club, and now a director of CNASA.

During the day I teach High School Biology.  Evenings, weekends, and summers, I teach obedience classes and do behaviour consultations.
