“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!

“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!

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.

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.
