Meet Your Dog Walker

Hi! My name is Ashley Diaz, owner & sole operator of K9 Ascent. I opened business in 2014 on a mission to create happier & healthier pets through exceptional pet care.


My services incorporate exercise, exploration & engagement, creating a holistic & fulfilling experience for our dogs. We venture to different parks, trails & neighborhoods to explore new sights, smells & sounds. And we work to engage the mind through basic training; all while exercising & socializing with a small group of other dogs.


I believe the canine-human relationship thrives when centered around respect for our unique needs as different species, compassion in knowing we are all on an individual journey & a genuine love for our dogs, each other & ourselves.


Safety First

We keep our group sizes small, ensuring safety while giving your dog the personal attention they deserve. With over 10 years experience working with dogs, we believe learning is a lifelong journey and work to not only deepen our understanding of dogs but how we, as humans, can grow as their compassionate companions & guides.
