“Responsible, reliable dog lover!”
I’ve taken care of dogs for almost 10 years! I’ve taken care of every type of dog. From a 120lb Great Dane to a toy poodle that needed extra special care and attention! I love all pups and I would love to take care of yours! I could take your dog for a walk, hiking, or whatever your pup needs!

“Full-time pet caretaker (& pet lover & cuddler)”
Hello, I’m Kelsey! I have always been a MAJOR dog lover. When I was really young, I used to wish for a pet puppy each year as I blew out my birthday candles. My wish came true in 2003 with a rescued papillon mix, and since then I have owned three wonderful dogs. In 2010, I started walking and "dog-sat" for a variety of breeds- everything from chihuahuas and dachshunds to pit bulls and boxers! I cannot wait to meet your fur-baby and give them all the exercise and attention that they need!

Hello! My name is Amber and I am the proud adoptive mother of a six and a half year old Cairn terrier poodle mix. I was active in fundraising efforts for FOTAS (Friends of the Animal Shelter) while living in southern Oregon. I thoroughly enjoy observing, intuiting and responding with compassion to each dog’s unique needs. I consider it a privilege to care for your beloved fur bundles of joy!

“Let’s pack snacks and make tracks!”
I’ve always loved dogs! I’ve had a lot of experience with learning to train my personal dogs. I volunteered at a local shelter in my city, and I often foster dogs as well. I had to give emergency birth to two liters of puppies for an elderly neighbor and after the second one I paid to have her dog altered. My three boys are my life. They are the most perfect fur babies I could have been paired with! I can’t wait to me YOUR furmily! I have been away from Wag! for a long time, but I’m back!

My pets are my children. When I got my dog 9 years ago, I took every step to train her properly and make sure she received the care and attention she needed. I can’t imagine life without pets. I’m often the person that bonds easily with animals everywhere I go.

I am a 24 year old grad student attending the University of Maryland. I'm from New Jersey and I own a 10-year old mixed-breed dog names Sassy. In the past year, I lost two of my dogs who happened to be Sassy's parents. So for the past 10 years, my family and I have taken care of three dogs under roof. As you can tell, dogs have been apart of my world for over half of life and I couldn't imagine it being any different. If given the chance to walk your dog, I will treat he or she like they are family.

Located in Buncombe County, the town of Alexander, North Carolina is officially listed as an “unincorporated community.” This means that, while Alexander isn’t in the municipality, it is still considered to be under the county’s jurisdiction. Alexander is a quiet place, with locals calling it the “gem of North Carolina.”
Unfortunately, it might not be a gem for pet owners. Alexander has no veterinarians, no dog-friendly restaurants, and no dog parks. The best you can do is taking your dog for a walk down the streets. Fear not, though! Alexander is only about fifteen minutes from Weaverville and only twenty minutes from Asheville, both of which are full of dog-friendly eateries and recreation! Both also have several different options to choose from when looking for a veterinarian, so you know you can get the best care for your pup by finding a doctor who just clicks with your pooch. North Carolina is full of quaint, quiet little towns, and Alexander is one of them. Don’t let that distract you from all the fun that’s only a quick trip up the road, though!
Make no bones about it: we’ve all wanted to go out and dine
with our furry pals. In Weaverville, which is just fifteen minutes from
Alexander, you have plenty of places to do so! If you want a light meal or
something sweet, swing by Well-Bred Bakery & Café. Well-Bred is open all
day long, and your pooch can join you at an outdoor table. Want something a bit
more filling? Try Twisted Laurel, which dishes up amazing American and Mediterranean
dishes. Fido can sit with you on the patio. Dogs will need to be on a leash no matter
which establishment you choose.
If you’re someone who loves history, you have to take a stroll through Montford Historic District. The entire community is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and if the weather is nice, touring the area makes for a great day trip. But what fun would a day trip be without your canine companion in tow? Fido is welcome to join you as you walk around, as long as he remains on his leash and you remember to clean up after him. Make sure to bring comfortable walking shoes and plenty of water for the both of you.
About twenty minutes from Alexander is Asheville’s Hall Fletcher neighborhood, which is home to French Broad River Dog Park! This popular dog park is known for how beautiful it is. Unlike most dog parks, this bark park doesn’t have separate areas for large and small dogs, so if your pup only gets along with those his own size, you might want to consider that before bringing him. French Broad River Dog Park offers access to the river, so on hot summer days, your dog can make a splash and go for a swim. Your pup is sure to have a ball here!
In downtown Asheville, there’s no limit to the fun you and your pup can have, and it’s only twenty minutes from Alexander. Want to go shopping? Visit Zest or Mast General Store, both of which are dog-friendly! Want to feel the fear with your brave guard dog? Take a ghost tour with Haunted Asheville. Just visit their website to see when tours are offered; your leashed dog can take the tour with you. Downtown Asheville also has plenty of restaurants and breweries where Fido can join you on the patio as long as he stays on his leash. The opportunities are endless!
If you’re not allergic, make sure to stop and smell the flowers at the North Carolina Arboretum. You’ll find it in Asheville, about thirty minutes from Alexander. Make sure to bring along your phone or camera so you can snap some pictures of all the beautiful flowers and plants you’ll see. This botanical garden is dog-friendly to friendly, leashed dogs, as long as you make sure to clean up after them. The waste disposal bags you’ll need to do so aren’t provided, so please bring your own. Don’t forget to bring water for Fido, either.
