At Ashley's Animal Academy, our goal in training is to improve the canine-human bond by helping dog owners understand what their dog is telling them. We like to say that we train HUMANS to speak DOG!
This means that when training your pup, Ashley will use her knowledge of dog behavior and learning theory as well as your relationship with your dog to custom-tailor a program that is right for you and your best friend.
Ashley keeps a variety of tools and training methods in her “toolbox” to find the right style for you and your dog.
Part of every training session with us will also include educating YOU to speak your dog’s language in order to create an on-going and well-rounded training experience.
All training will start with an evaluation to discuss what is the best option for your dog. After the evaluation, we will work with you to develop a tentative training schedule. All training (except group lessons) will be performed in the comfort of your home and community, because that is where your dog will need to behave for you once training is over!
Private Behavioral Sessions
Does your dog bark constantly at things outside the window? Does he/she lunge and bark at other dogs on walks? Is your dog fearful or anxious around strangers, other dogs, or certain objects? Private session may be best for you!
During Private Sessions, Ashley will come to your house for an hour long session to work on select behavior concerns or commands. Ashley will work closely with you and your dog to fix the individualized behaviors that YOU want to work on.
$120 per 60 minute session
*Based on 1 dog.
At Home Obedience Packages
Do you want your dog to be a well-rounded member of your family? Consider having our trainer, Ashley, come to your home for the basic or advanced obedience training!
In basic obedience, we will focus on all of your pup's basic commands (sit, down, come, wait, stay, take it, leave it, drop it, place, loose-leash walking) and basic manners.
YOU will also learn how to better read your dog's body language and communicate with your pup!
In advanced obedience, we will continue working on the commands your pup learned in Basic Obedience, while focusing on the "3 D's" of dog training: Distance, Distraction, and Duration.
This course will include field trips so we can hone your pup's skills in public!!
Included in both of these packages:
*Based on one dog.
