Meet Our Team

Hard Working, Loyal, and Passionate



Ally Marshall

Ally has been training dogs professionally since 2009, and began working for WRBI in 2014. In 2019, WRBI stepped away from the training and boarding kennel and Ally took over as the owner of the newly-transformed Wind River Canine Partners. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a research emphasis in Animal Behavior, and a Professional Dog Trainer Certification from Animal Behavior College. She is a member in good standing of the Five Valley Retriever Club.

Ally is also a licensed master falconer and has been training and hunting with birds of prey since 2006. She is president of the Montana Falconers’ Association and a member in good standing of the North American Falconer’s Association (NAFA).

Ally currently shares her home with three personal dogs: Karma, an American Brittany, Vita, a heeler mix, and Cheddar, a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. She is an AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.
