Ashley Sloat, CPDT-KA

Senior Trainer

Ashley joined the Thunderhawk team in February 2018. Her love of dogs started early, helping train her family dogs. Unable to adopt more dogs while she was young, she would often visit the animal shelter and play and love on those who found themselves in need.

Ashley’s interest in training and canine behavior peeked when she got her first American Bully, Heisenberg, in 2013. With him, she attended private sessions and completed group classes at thk9, and quickly followed with the rest of her four legged crew.

In Ashley’s free time, she was very involved in the conformation show ring before retiring her oldest American Bully. She’s also involved recreationally in Weight Pulling, agility, and flyball. Her interest in dog sports continues to grow as her education in each field grows. She also enjoys fostering puppies, helping them with their basic house manners and basic obedience before finding their forever home.

Ashley passed the Certification exam and earned her CPDT-KA in September of 2019, and continues her education though the Fenzi Dog Sport Academy. She also recently became an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and attended seminars focusing in canine aggression.

Currently Ashley assists in kennel work, office work, daycare transportation, in-board training program, teaches the AKC Puppy group classes, and assists in the Basic obedience group classes.

Looking ahead, Ashley plans on prepping for CBCC-KA exam in the spring of 2021, and continuing to further her education in canine aggression. Ashley has expressed several times that she is a lifer in the ThunderHawk Canine family lol! Having had found her calling in life, she plans on staying with THK9 long term.
