Meet Ash

Ash began training her down dogs when she was 10, working with horses when she was 13, and also has experience with cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, and parrots of various types.

She was first requested to volunteer her training expertise for a greyhound rescue, thus beginning her dog training business in 2008.  She has served her clients as a walker, trainer, communicator, and behaviorist.

Ash's biggest passions in life are learning and teaching.  With all her clients, she endeavors to not only provide steps and tools for success, but knowledge and wisdom to truly grow a partnership between humans and animals.
