Ali Evanson KPA CTP, CTDI

In-Home Behavioral Trainer

What I like the most about being a member of ASB is the amount of help and support offered to shelters, rescue organizations and new adopters. They strive to keep newly adopted dogs in homes through the use of positive reinforcement training. I consider ASB the gold standard of training, as there is an immense amount of support, experience and professionalism for new and existing clients.

Ali continues her education and professional growth by attending several seminars each year. She makes every effort to provide her clients the individual training solutions needed for their pet.

When not helping client animals, she enjoys time with her own, especially competing with one of her rescue pitties in dock diving competitions. She grew up riding horses and working with the family dogs when her parents would let her. Growing up she also had cats, rabbits, bearded dragons, mice, hamsters, and a ferret -- whatever her parents told her she couldn’t bring into the house, she did. Now her menagerie is a bit smaller with 4 dogs, 3 birds, a horse and a large saltwater fish tank.
