"Picture your "perfect dog." If your dog was perfect FOR YOU what would that look like?"

- Kindle Aseltine

Hi, I'm Kindle Aseltine. When I first meet a new client, that's one of my favorite questions to ask.
Every dog is different and everyone has different goals and expectations for their dog.
Do you want to walk your dog down a busy sidewalk with ease?
Go hiking and always feel comfortable with your dog off-leash? My professional and caring staff WILL help you reach your goals and surpass your expectations.

Freedom K9’s Methods and Beliefs:

Here at Freedom K9, we will give your dog a solid foundation for their obedience commands in a fun and fair way. We believe you should only have to say your command once without raising your voice, darkening your tone, repeating yourself, intimidation, or man-handling.

Our goal is to build happy and confident dogs while empowering owners to be the leader their dog needs them to be. This will give both the dog and owner the ability to communicate with each other and have a strong relationship built from trust.
Having rules, boundaries, and high expectations for your child doesn’t break their spirit or change their personality. It prepares them for real life and builds them into good citizens you can be proud of… It’s the same belief we have when training your dog.
Our training methods will open your world to new possibilities with a well-mannered dog that actually listens to you.

Freedom K9 works with all ages and breeds. Whether you are coming to us for puppy training, basic obedience with your recently adopted dog, off-leash reliability with your hiking partner, or have a dog that needs behavior modification, we have your back.

If you've been to other trainers, been told to put down your dog because of behavior issues, or if you haven't gotten the results you need, give us a call. We will help you.

Word of mouth means everything. If you are local, ask around. Freedom K9 is highly recommended by several Veterinarians, Groomers, Boarding Facilities, Rescues, Quality Breeders, Pet Professionals, and even other Dog Trainers. Our clients are very happy to show off their well-mannered companion and tell you about their experience training with us.
