About Ashley

22 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***Update! As of April 1st, I'll be adding daycare to the services I offer. I'm excited to be able to be even more available for your pet's needs.***

About me:
I grew up with dogs and horses my entire life, both training and competing with them. Almost ten years ago, I made my passion my profession by becoming a dog trainer. I have a Dutch Shepherd and a Belgian Malinois (both large dogs), as well as a Miniature Schnauzer (small dog) who I compete with in numerous (9!) dog sports. We are a very active dog family, and our dogs are a huge part of our lives. Both my work time and my free time are spent with dogs, and I love every minute of it. I have experience caring for and training all different sizes, personalities, temperaments and energy levels.

Our home is clean, non-smoking and dog friendly. We wash and sanitize our outdoor area daily, and treat the entire house and outdoors for fleas and ticks monthly. We have a medium yard, but my dogs are spoiled house dogs, so there's no way my dogs would want to stay out there, since they'd much rather be inside with us. We use only natural and safe for pets cleaners in our home, as safety while your pet is with us, is paramount.

We are excited to welcome your dog into our lives, while you are away, and treat them like a member of our family. They live inside with us, and are so well cared for, they may not want to go back (in a good way)! They can be loose, crated or any combination of the two, whatever your dog is used to at home. Our goal is to make them as comfortable as possible, so their time away from you is stress free. I do keep boarding dogs separate from my dogs (who are crated in their own room), to avoid any possible problems. I find this keeps all dogs the happiest, as they do not have to constantly compete for my attention.

We accept and love all breeds and sizes! I like to know what the dog's regular schedule looks like, so their transition to my house is as stress free as possible. Routines are an integral part of a pet's life, and the more I can mimic them, the less stressful it is for your pets.

New clients, please answer all of the following questions:
-Desired drop off and pick up times
-What does your pet's regular feeding and potty schedule look like?
-Do they have lots of energy, or do they just want to cuddle on the couch all day?
-Is your pet a fence jumper?
-Do they have separation anxiety?
-Does your pet mark in unfamiliar places?
-Do they chew or take things off the counter?
-Does your pet like to bark?
-Do they have any special needs, allergies or take any medications?
All of these things are important to know, so I can keep them safe and happy during their stay with me.

Things to bring with your dog on their visit:
-enough food (portioned out per meal) for the entire stay, plus one day
-medication/supplements clearly labeled with dosage instructions
-collar or harness
-emergency contact information

***Please do not bring toys or beds, as they may be lost or damaged during play. We also have extra crates, should your dog prefer their own quiet space to relax.***

I accept altered, unaltered, and females in heat. All sizes and breeds are loved!

For unaltered dogs that board at my house, I do require they are crate trained. Because I accept both unaltered males and females, I need to be able to safety contain and securely separate them, should I have a guest who is in/comes into heat.I find it is better to be safe than sorry.

My rates are for 24 hour period, and later pick up times can be arranged at an additional rate.

Ashley and Robby were wonderful! They took amazing care of my crazy Doberman, Hachi! They made my drop off and pick up very easy and convenient. Their home is beautiful and so clean! I immediately felt comfortable leaving Hachi, knowing he would be well taken care of. Ashley sent me picture updates and Hachi looked like he was having a blast! When I picked him up, he was a happy, tired dog. They even sent him home with a little goodie bag with treats and a toy. I will definitely be using Robby and Ashley again!
I'm gonna bring them again sometime and hope for some trust showing me where our dogs actually were for three days , very closed off and had to prod to get a photo- it was alarming. When I got there she was out but her fiancé would be home, and he held out the leash at first like he thought dogs are dirty or something, it was SO off putting.?!? Not even close to the way any dog vacay is supposed to begin . I had to repeatedly ask him to help get them to him - he's just COLD. It was frightening both the dog and me, then he got all snobby- was not -- I was scared to leave them there. Then he interrupted my sentence mid word/ cut me off and looking not at me - but at the floor- he goes" Just Go." And that I nearly took both dogs and marched out. There is zero parking- they expect you to be in a red zone and all of these neighbors are checking you out- very very sketchy.
I was not fully finished reading when I booked it - my first ever try- and so did not see that we bring food- I was in a rush / and it's a half hour drive I've never driven there before, I asked where the closest shop is to pick them up food - and got this ATtitude. Super scary. Hoping he is just ultra shy therefore rude beyond all norms- I gulped and left. As far as I can tell she doesn't reside there- she's gone when you come back and it was?? She got there when I came to get them but I had my suspicion. Something's not quite right in this one. I just was afraid of them. The photo looked like they were anxious
Ashley is a great dog-sitter! Only sitter that I will be taking my dog to from now on. She updated me on how my dog was doing and also responded quick to any questions I had. Thank You!
