Ashley McGaughey is a Certified Master Dog Trainer who graduated from the Tom Rose School in St. Louis, Missouri. She is also an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. In 2011, Ashley received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Virginia Commonwealth University, before attending and graduating both the Professional and Master Trainer programs at the Tom Rose School. Ashley has trained pets, therapy dogs, deaf dogs and service dogs in Denver, Colorado; St. Louis, Missouri; and Richmond, Virginia. Volunteering her services for local rescue groups and non-profit organizations has fostered an even greater sense of compassion in Ashley. This is her daily inspiration to educate as many people as possible so there are less unwanted dogs in the country. Her passion for people and their canine companions is what sparked her desire to open her own training business in Denver, Colorado which she owned and operated for five successful years until venturing further East to Pasadena, Maryland to continue bettering the lives of owners and their dogs. When Ashley is not busy training her clients’ dogs, she enjoys training her own dogs in different sports and activities like French Ring Sports, AKC Obedience and various odor detection. Ashley’s Labrador, Oliver received a grand champion title in FR1 for 2017 which broke a world record as it has never been done by a Labrador in this sport! Ashley’s dogs, Akuna and Oliver both received their CD titles in AKC in 2017 along with a high in trail award, receiving the highest score of the day throughout all levels.
