Ashleigh Young

Ashleigh Young is the 2022/23 Membership Director of GSDOC, she also is one of the volunteer class instructors for the club.  Ashleigh has two dogs currently, a 4-year-old English Springer Spaniel, Pepper who was invited to 2022 Rally Nationals and is currently ranked #1 as the longest jumping dock diving Springer Spaniel in the US! And Saint Fishtopher (Fish), an almost one-year-old rescue dog who has one eye. He holds his Canine Good Citizen and several tricks titles. He's working towards his Novice Rally and Obedience titles.  Ashleigh has trialed and trained in CPE agility, rally, dock diving, obedience, and K9 Nose Work both personally and professionally.  Ashleigh currently works at Davis County Animal Control in Fruit Heights, Utah as the Director of Animal Care. She loves to foster challenging dogs in her free time, giving them that training that they need and seeing them bloom, eventually finding furever homes. She's always happy to answer questions about animal shelters and has a very interesting perspective living in both worlds - the purebred, competition dog, and the rescue dog world.  Ashleigh has many topics she is passionate about that don't include dogs (although, always up for talking about dogs!) - she is an avid knitter, and gardener, loves to bake, and is found hitting the trails most weekends with her dogs
