Meet Our Trainer:
Ashley Gibbons

Ashley prides herself on using positive reinforcement training methods to create an ever-lasting bond between you and your furry friend. She takes a special interest in dog behaviour and loves working with shy, timid, fearful and reactive dogs. She has taken over thirty new science based courses this year alone, in order to keep up to date on the most recent research so that she can provide her clients with the most informative and effective training possible.

Ashley is the Vice President of The Newfoundland Athletic Dog Association, a trainer for The Newfoundland Kennel Club, and she competes in Agility, Rally, Obedience and Trick Training with her Golden Retriever, Ellie. They've earned 5 titles this year (NTD, ITD, BID, BSS, and RLI-AOE). We’re so proud of all her accomplishments and we can’t wait to see what this year will bring!
