About Ashley

20 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
***Update***
We moved! Our new, very dog friendly home is finally done, and we are excited and ready to host your pets.

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.

For questions about my training philosophy, more references, or more information about me and my dogs, please feel free to ask for my training website.

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

Ashley was very responsive and accommodating. Her home was modern, clean, and well-designed for humans or pets!

The girls were immediately at home and relaxed with Ashley just after we arrived. We came back to content pups and they rolled into their normal routine right away--that's what we're looking for!

Ashley took great care of Lobo, who is shy and doesn't have much experience off our property. He came back tired and happy, which is about all I can ask for. Ashley was very communicative and easy to work with, and she sent us home with a goodie bag of treats.

Ashley has a way with dogs, my dog usually cries when I leave her. She se med so content and at home here. I felt very comfortable leaving her here.
Ashley was great with our puppy, Sequoia. In fact when I came to pick our puppy up she wasn't interested in leaving and just walked over to the doggy bed with a bone like I wasn't even there. Ashley was flexible with pick up/drop off times and even provided a gift bag for Sequoia. Thank you Ashley!

Ashley was absolutely fantastic! She was able to keep our dog, Che, on very short notice after the previous host fell through. Being first timers to the program and having our first host reservation go so wrong, we were very anxious about leaving Che with anyone. She was able to put us both at ease, spending time talking and sharing her love for her own dogs and her plan of care for Che. She texted us a picture when we asked about his night (we could barely wait til 9...) He was on a plushy comfy dog bed and looked alert and happy!

When we picked up Che that afternoon, he was calm and relaxed and ready to go, so I knew he hadn't been cooped up. Ashley gave us a little treat bag full of all his favorites... Her very own dog biscuits, a squeak toy, and poop bags... Lol!


Thank you Ashley, for the fantastic time! Che will be back to see you again in July!
