Ashley Hoover, CPDT-KA, DCBC, BSc
My dog training journey began when I brought home a puppy that didn't fit with what I thought I knew about obedience training. I found a class to take with him that was different than anything I had done before in other dog classes, but that aligned with what I had studied in animal behaviour within my Bachelor of Science degree. I became so invested in helping him and learning more, I went to work for the company. Through them, I gained a DCBC certification that eventually led me to receiving my CPDT-KA designation.
Along the way, I realized I had a passion for helping others through the same challenges that I faced, and that there is a huge need for education on science based training as many of the old school methods are still prevalent in the dog training community. Striving to create change in an industry with little regulation has brought me to launch Spawt On!

What Our Clients Say
I have seen Ashley in action many times, and wow! She is so calm no matter what the dogs throw at her, and she is incredibly in-tune with their emotions and what they are likely to do next. She approaches dog training with so much knowledge - her expertise in animal behaviour and reading dog body language is so evident. She is patient and kind, and genuinely so excited to cheer the dogs on when they do well!
