We've been going to Limitless Canines for a few weeks now,! First and for most the staff is AMAZING. They're amazing with us and our dog. We've all (My wife, myself, and my dog Kiba) Have all already learned a lot, and are seeing lots of progress. I believe you have to be dedicated to the teachings to see results, and you'll get out what you put it. Can't recommend them enough!

I can’t say enough great things about Ashley and her staff! When we came to limitless with our dog we were at our whits end! Our sweet dog started having more and more behavioral issues in the last few years after we added the additions of cats into our home. The team here has worked with us weekly to make this situation better and WOW what a change we have seen! I won’t say it was easy (our dog being six and all) but it has been worth it for the results we have seen in our dog and home life! 10/10 would recommend this place and this team!

Ashley, our trainer actually trained us, which in turn, gave us the skills and confidence to work (train) with our Havanese. Yes, I said work! Be prepared to practice training techniques multiple (25-50) times per day. As we did, our confidence grew and the bond with our dog increased. The training is expensive, but at Limitless Canines you truly get what you pay for. The training center clean and fresh. Ashley always takes the time to answer all our questions (at times she can be very blunt) as well she gives great explanations behind why she trains like she does. As a bonus, Cory greets you at the door with a smile. Just in case you wondered....Kaci Mae loves all the staff!!!

I started noticing results on day 2. My dog was becoming more calm and paying attention to me. That was when I knew choosing Ashley and her team at limitless Canine was the best decision EVER! Training is made simple so both you and your dog understand the goals. We haven't even finished all of our classes yet and I am so happy with the progress. I am on my way to getting my dream dog that I can take anywhere and for that, I am so thankful!

We took our rescued, 140 lb, Cane Corso named Roman to Limitless Canines to address issues we were having with dog aggression, stubbornness, and inability to groom him whatsoever. Shaun took in our issues, listened to us about what we wanted out of our dog/human relationship, and broke down every part of our relationship so we could build a new foundation from the ground up. The time and attention that Shaun devoted to us and Roman was spot on. We never felt like we didn't understand the exercises or the end goals when training. He also cares deeply about his clients and wants everyone to succeed. The program is also very focused on your specific issues and if you need more time or more guidance when teaching your dog something new, they are very willing to keep working you through it. I cannot recommend this company enough. If you love your dog, but don't always love their behavior, why suffer through it? Changing our relationship with our dog changed our lives. It can change yours too!

All of the above responses. Ashley and the whole team are great. I’ve done lots of different obedience classes throughout my life and their approach is different from any of the previous classes. I think their approach gets faster results.

I came to Ashley in October 2020 because I wanted to get my dog, Winston, certified as a therapy dog and needed to acquire many obedience skills to pass the certification tests. Ashley and the whole team there are amazing! Ashley's training style is a total game changer. Not only did Winston learn all the skills he needed to pass his Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog Certification exams and is now a working therapy dog, but he transformed from a rescue puppy who had lived his first 6 month outside into a bombproof dog who is amazing in our home, and who we can take to outdoor dining and other establishments with confidence in his ability to behave! The skills she teaches are so important for general safety too! Our first time walking through the DC streets, an car quickly made an illegal left turn in front of us. Thankfully Winston was in a perfect heel and when I stopped very suddenly in the crosswalk, he auto-sat right beside me like he was trained to do. Had he been pulling on the leash out in front of me, he could have easily been hit, and it all happened too fast to have been able to pull him out of the way! Thankfully, he was trained to stop as soon as I stopped! If you are looking for dog training in the area for any reason, look no further!

Can’t say enough good things about Ashley and the staff at [Limitless Canines]. I was determined to not have a stereotypical “yappy” Pomeranian. I now have a dog I can trust in public and I constantly get compliments on how well behaved he is. The best part? He does all of this without treats which is so important in making sure my little guy stays safe. I’ve felt so supported through this entire process and could not have done it without Ashley’s support and guidance. The upfront cost can be a bit of a hit, but it leaves you with a companion that you can take anywhere with you for years to come.

Excellent training facility! No need to search any further for a trainer or program. Leaps and bounds above any of your big store training.

We chose the sleep away training for our pup. While she was a sweet girl she had many behavioral issues. In a few short weeks Ashley and her team had her behaving completely different. We chose this team due to their professionalism, educated and talented staff. You can tell from the first conversation this group is not only about the dogs, but about making better dog owners as well. I’ve had dogs all my life and I can’t begin to tell you how much I’ve learned from Ashley. My best advice, purchase the services with confidence and trust her with your furry family member. You will not be disappointed.

Love this place!! Was on my 3rd dog trainer & just thought my Buddha would have to be a dog that never was able to go on walks. He’s a covid, fear aggressive, mastiff baby 🍼 We have been working with Ashley and the last time we were at her studio, someone else came in & Buddha didn’t even care. Before Ashley he wanted to lunge, growl, and scare everyone & everything before it could scare him. He’s a work in progress but we found a professional 👏🏼🙏🏼 Thank you Ashley 💕💕💕💕

Ashley has been helping me train my service dog Bailey since he was a young pup. I firmly believe there is no behavioral issue that she can't help with. She has taught him commands, helped him walk politely on a leash, made him stop reacting fearfully to other dogs, and adjusted her techniques as needed to my mobility issues. I literally recommend her to everyone.

I need help with my dog!
