Ashley is one of the few people I know who I can fully trust with anything. She is the most responsible young adults I know and is an excellent dog trainer. Ashley is honest and will not except more than she knows she is capable of.
Long time professional dog trainer!
Being a longtime trainer of both pet and service dogs, I am very equipped to not only care for you dog, but also teach them manners, commands, and even tricks! I am very professional and will always treat you and your dog with respect. I have volunteered for rescue organizations, fostered dogs, and currently work for both Starfleet Service Dogs Inc. a non-profit that trains service dogs and the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine ...
What Ashley would like to know about your dog
I would like to know if they have any fear or aggression so I can thoughtfully plan out my interactions and exercise routes with your dog; I first and foremost want them to feel safe and comfortable at all times. I am more than happy to work with your dog to overcome those reactions in situations when your dog is fearful or aggressive upon your request!
I also request that you provide your own leash and collar for dog walks so that you can choose what equipment they wear on a walk. Also any commands that may be useful like: come, sit, look, leave it, and your praise and release words (and their favorite place to be pet or scratched!).
I also need to be informed of any food allergies your dog has (not that I will be giving your dog unapproved dog treats or human food!) so I can react appropriately. And if you have treats for your dog I am happy to bring them on walks with your dog and for house visits and stays.
