I just got a new puppy and it’s been awhile since I had to train a dog. I was looking to join a puppy class, but the fact that they only offer 6-week classes, and I’ll be leaving LA in 2 weeks, made it quite a challenge. Reached out to Woof Pack and got scheduled right away with a private session at my house with Ashley.
Ashley is fantastic. She answered every question I had, even though I was shooting them off left and right at 1000 miles an hour. From the get go, she had my pup’s full attention and that continued for the full 75-min session (which was a blessing too because my puppy slept the rest of the day after the session was over).
It’s absolutely mind-boggling how well Ashley works – she got my puppy to obey commands I’ve been trying to teach her since the day we bought her home in a single session. My puppy retained all that information too! It was almost like I had a new dog the next day – example: she taught her to sit at the door to get out. The following few days, that’s exactly what my puppy did. She also started obeying commands on the first try.
I’m unbelievably happy with the results I’ve gotten from just the first session. Highly recommend.

Beyond being a wonderful dog trainer, Ashley is a great person. I was out of the country when my boss hired her and I returned to LA to a completely new, well-behaved puppy. Our dog went from refusing to walk on a leash, biting constantly, and other normal puppy stuff to walking very well on his leash, being potty trained, learning his name, and learning various commands within just a few days all thanks to Ashley.
She accommodated our schedule and needs, even going as far to drive well out of her way to the house so the kids could be part of the training. It’s obvious that she is super passionate about her job and cares that the dog’s owners know how to properly take care of their pet. She is entirely trustworthy, reliable, and an ultra positive young woman. You would be lucky to work with her…we definitely were! Having worked with kids for over a decade, I can only imagine how difficult her job is but she makes it look easy. We love you, Ashley! Thanks for everything.

Our nine month-old pup, Oscar, is never happier than after spending quality time with Ashley. She’s great to work with — personable and warm with us… intuitive, kind, and effective with Oscar.
We first used Woof Pack for private training. Oscar’s bite inhibition, recall, house training, and knowledge of basic commands all dramatically improved through these sessions. Ashley began training Oscar off-leash on trails very young, and he’s developed into a great hiking companion.
We’ve also used Woof Pack for beach days, day care, and extended pet sitting. It’s made vacations so much less stressful. We don’t just trust Oscar with Ashley. We know that at the end of a long trip, we’re going to return home to a blissed-out and well-behaved pup.

We use Ashley for dog sitting on an almost weekly basis, and we love her. More importantly, our dog loves her. He’s a very friendly dog to begin with, but nothing gets him as excited as seeing Ashley at the door to pick him up for the day!
It’s also clear that Ashley takes really good care of the dog she cares for. She goes hiking with them often and sends me photos/videos of my pup having fun. Every time she brings him back, he’s happy but also worn out from all the exercise and play time he’s gotten. While we don’t specifically use her as a trainer, she worked with our dog on being off-leash and now I get comments from my friends on how well behaved he is when we take him to Runyon Canyon. It makes me feel really good sending him to Ashley for the day because I know he’s going to have a great time, and that she’s going to go above and beyond taking care of him.

I can’t say enough about Ashley and her positive training techniques! My puppy is so stubborn but with Ashley he melts like butter around her. I love that she was able to come to our home to train our wild baby. I was completely impressed with her interaction with him. Just watching her left me speechless and jealous! I also love that she sent follow up emails after the training to show us what we need to do. My baby doesn’t cry anymore when I leave him and he actually listens to me now! I can’t believe that she got him to walk without a leash! She is so patient. My life would be total chaos without her! I will continue to use Ashley for training and boarding. THANK YOU Ashley!!!!
