Ashley Valentine is a Nationally Certified Canine Behavior Consultant (CBCC-KA) and Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA).  She has completed a Complete Canine Certification in Canine Aggression master course through  Michael Shikashio. She uses positive reinforcement, management, and safety techniques to help owners and dogs with all levels of aggression, reactivity and anxiety. As with any canine, her goals are happy, loved dogs with confident, knowledgeable owners. 
In addition, she has also completed a master course on separation anxiety by Moira Hechenleitner DVM, CSAT, in which the training method is a positive and relaxing experience for the dog, which will allow them to desensitize and learn to be home alone comfortably. 
Ashley has completed her Licensing as a Family Dog Mediator (L.F.D.M) through Kim Brophey which gives understanding to the many aspects as to WHY dogs behave the way they do and how we can help them in a humane, enriching and enlightening way. This methodology helps bridge the gap between human and dog in order to have a better understanding, communication and trusting relationship from both ends of the leash. She has a special affinity for helping fearful and aggressive dogs reach a state of happiness and is always the common face at every local rescue event and takes pride in giving back to the canine community through her training, fostering, volunteering, her specialization in behavioral rehab and has completed a certification in Recognizing Pain in Dogs.
Ashley pursued her passion by obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from The University of Connecticut in 2007. Her passion for her animal training career began early, with riding horses at the age of 8 and by 19, she was managing a riding facility. She also built/owned/operated 2 riding facilities in which she trained horses to compete in Hunter Jumper competitions all over the East Coast. She then moved to San Diego in 2015 and put that education to work. Since then, she has become the go-to socializer for the most extreme fear cases found in a variety of rescues in San Diego and overseas.
