Door Manners

Door manner obedience is one of my favorites. Lego does not rush the door and he looks to me for his next command or release word. Good boy!

About Ashley


Dogs are family members

A graduate of Tarheel Canine Academy in Sanford, NC, I approach dog training in a very balanced way.  I’ve been working with dogs for 6 years and I truly enjoy teaching dogs obedience where they are then pleasurable in the home and in public. Dogs are integral parts of the family so it is imperative to have expectations of them and help them be successful.  I look forward to speaking with you about yours!

What is a “balanced approach” to dog training?

1. Teach the dog with positive reinforcement until he knows what he is supposed to do and commands are known

2. Expect the dog to do what he now knows and reward him for it

3. Guide the dog when he does not perform into a more successful performance 

4. Immediately reward when he complies if guidance was needed

The fact is, most dog owners have harnesses or collars on their dogs that they don’t understand the use of. Tools to be successful are necessary in dog training just as they are in other fields. Depending on your dog, he/she may need a specific collar, muzzle work, or a specific lead that makes him/her the most obedient and pleasant living in this world and with your family. It IS possible to love your fur baby AND their behaviors!
