But only to those who know how to listen."

Meet Ashley, Owner of K9 Ascent

Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. My name's Ashley and by my side is my dog, Bailey (my heart dog & co-owner of K9 Ascent).

Throughout my life, the bond between human & animal has offered me a safe space to open my heart, has challenged me to look deeper within myself and given me greater meaning & purpose in life.

The lessons I've learned from my own dog are at the heart of what I do at K9 Ascent. I believe we can elevate our relationship with (hu)man's best friend,
honoring & meeting their needs as canines, while they live & evolve in a dynamic human world. My work with dogs is centered around compassion; for our dogs, each other & ourselves.
