Ash Turney – Head Trainer
Ash is a paleontology-loving Oakland native who has been working closely with dogs for the last decade. After spending some time in Australia working as a trained chef, she moved to the Bay Area and switched gears to reflect her lifelong love of dogs. She’s gained hands-on experience in dog daycares, and she even spent a year walking dogs off-leash in the woods. That definitely takes some natural dog-handling talent!
As a child, Ash was never allowed to have dogs of her own, so she spent her teenage years pet sitting and pitching in at shelters and adoption events. Now, Ash is mom to two sweet pit bulls and has been raising her own dogs for years. You certainly don’t have to worry about any pit bull/breed aversion from Ash!
Dog behavior has always been an interest of Ash’s, so it was only natural that she took the next step in her career by becoming a dog trainer. Ash chose Canine Trade Group’s intensive certification course because she knew it would give her the tools she needed to handle any canine behavior problem that came her way! Ash is especially interested in dog behavior and in bettering the relationship between dogs and their humans. In the future, Ash plans to specialize in therapy dogs and aggression cases.
If you’re looking for someone who is worldly, experienced, and passionate about dog training, you can’t go wrong with Ash! She currently serves the Bay Area, including Oakland, Berkeley, Fremont, San Leandro, Palo Alto, and San Francisco. She wants to work with you, so shoot her a line!
