dog training to

improve the life 

you share with 

your dog.

Hi! I'm Ally. I'm a lifelong animal lover, shelter volunteer, and an honors graduate of

The Academy for Dog Trainers.

I share a cozy home with three dogs, two cats, two horses, and two barn cats in Chester, NJ.

As a certified dog trainer and Fear Free Certified Professional, I'm dedicated to humane, force-free, and reward-based methods. I value continuing education, kindness, and empathy for both ends of the leash. 

You've landed in the right place. Let's work together.

Step 1


Here we'll discuss your dog, what you're experiencing, training goals, and so much more. 

 ​You'll receive detailed notes including suggestions, homework, the start of our training plans, and ongoing email support for two weeks.

Step 2


After your consult, I'll put together a recommended training plan. I offer packages, day training, and single session follow ups. 


All sessions can be virtual or in-home within the service range. 

Step 3


Have you just brought home a puppy or a rescue dog?

Are you struggling with reactivity or pulling on a leash?

 Excessive barking, destructive chewing, fear, or aggression?

Do you want to better understand your dogs needs?

 All of that and so much more, my reward-based, positive methods can help.

Please see the services page for details!

3 sessions: $337 | 6 sessions: $675


Debbie & Bella, NJ

Ally worked with our bulldog Bella as well as our pit Maui. Right from the start Ally’s expertise, training techniques, and patience had them eager to learn as well as myself! I loved that she would always follow up with a report on what we learned and what to work on before our next session. She is an excellent trainer and has made me more confident as a pet owner!

Fran, Al & Cooper, NJ

Ally understands dogs better than anyone I’ve ever met. She uses positive reinforcement and seems to understand what Cooper is thinking. Ally helped us develop a training plan and schedule for Cooper’s potty breaks and in a reasonably short time, Cooper has become a fun-loving family member. I have recommended Ally to all my dog owning friends. She is a pleasure to work with.

Sara & Georgia, NJ

Ally instills confidence in me as a dog owner and truly teaches me how to understand what my dogs are experiencing and thinking when they behave certain ways. I have recommended Learning Tails to many of my friends personally, and am happy to recommend her to anyone seeking help managing their dogs. She also follows up sessions with notes emailed about what we discussed, so I can look back on things we talked about as it's obviously overwhelming to try and remember everything we covered! Thank you, Ally, for ensuring our dogs have success in our home.
