“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!

“9/10 dogs think my jokes are hilarious.”

Hey there! My name is Adam. I am a 32 year-old cancer warrior, teacher, author, and dog-lover-extraordinaire. I've raised dogs most of my life and they've all turned out fairly well. Most are off to college now and I'm missing them dearly. Thus, I am here looking for new canine-friends. I am an avid cyclist, runner and thoroughly love long walks/talks with pups. Hopefully your pup and I can bond over politics and 30-60 minute jaunt!

“Asheville professional providing great dog care”

I am a young professional living in Asheville and looking to help some people out by walking their dogs! I grew up with a dog but don't currently have one because my space is too small and wouldn't give a dog enough room to get out and play. I like being outside and walking a lot, so this is a great chance to do that more while spending time with dogs too!

Dog Walking in Asheville

In the western Blue Ridge Mountains lies the city Asheville, North Carolina, one of the most kindest places to animals and people in the country. The liberal view of the 80,000 or so inhabitants of Asheville extends to animals and their rights which result in many pet-friendly venues and attractions. The beautiful natural surroundings of the region top things off.

One of the top attractions, the Biltmore Estate, is also accessible for dogs. Explore over 250 acres well-tended gardens together as long as they are on a leash. Furthermore, dogs are allowed in the restaurants at Antler Hill Village.

Two of the parks in Asheville offer off-leash opportunities. The French Broad River Park, which drifts alongside the river with the same name, is not only amazing for the peaceful natural setting it offers. The dog park is a hit with the locals as it is a great place for them to run around and meet new pals. The Azalea Park Dog Park, part of the 155 acre Azalea Park, offers a similar experience.

And then there is the North Carolina Arboretum, a huge natural park with landscaped gardens and several hiking trails of varying difficulties. All in all, Asheville has a lot to offer for dogs and their owners.
