I have had dogs in my family for over 20 years. I know how hard it can be to find responsible, respectful, and reliable caretakers for them while you are away. I would love to be that person who helps you when you need it!

“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.

“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.

Dog Walking in Canton

The cozy town of Canton lies on the Pidgeon River, in the heart of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. This quaint mountain village is known for its excellent school systems, friendly townsfolk, and picture-perfect landscape. With only 20 miles separating this charming town from bustling Asheville, it comes as no surprise that many families choose to relocate here from the big city. The community strives to care for the four-legged residents as well, with a veterinary clinic known for its compassionate care and plenty of outdoor activities for pups to enjoy. 

The crown jewel of this area is the Pisgah National Forrest, home to some of the most magnificent terrain in Appalachia. A hike along the Graveyard Fields Trail is an excellent way to take in the surroundings with your pooches. They will love all the sights and smells the trail has to offer, with two waterfalls, a river, and an abundance of wildlife. We can’t forget the blueberry bushes along the path, which provide a vitamin-packed and dog-safe snack along the way! 

Blueberries can’t hold you over for long! When those hunger pangs hit, grab a change of clothes and paw over to Southern Porch in downtown! This dog-friendly gastropub offers country fixin’s like shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, and scratch-made-biscuits -- talk about dog heaven! 

Best Dog Neighborhoods in Canton

Black Balsam Knob

Natural beauty is plentiful in these parts, but if we had to narrow it down to one mutts-see attraction, it would be Black Balsam Knob. The turnoff for the mountain is on the famous Blue Ridge Parkway, dubbed “America’s favorite drive", making the trip double the fun (but it always is for Fido)! The bald peak lends to panoramic views that some say are the best in the Blue Ridge Mountains. There are several trails to explore and many campsites for dogs looking to prolong their stay. Furry campers who are uninterested in having roasted hot dogs (again) can travel back down the mountain to grab some grub at the Jukebox Junction Restaurant. This classic diner has dog-friendly picnic tables in the back and is open from 7 am to 8 pm every day except Sunday (when it closes at 3 pm).

If your dog’s idea of a good time is admiring the works of Pablo Pug-casso and Salvador Doggie, then the River Arts District is the place for you! Asheville is well-known for its flourishing creative scene, and this lively neighborhood is no exception! The River Arts District is home to every type of gallery you can think of: traditional, contemporary, sculpture, woodworking, ceramics, fabric work, glass creations — you name it! The best part is most of the galleries are pup-friendly (but make sure you ask first!).  The two of you will have a ball sniffing out a new masterpiece to take home!

Need a fresh spin on the old dog walking routine? Try a paw-a-normal walking tour! The Ghost Hunters of Asheville experience proves that it doesn’t have to be Howl-o-ween for canines to have a frightfully fun time in Downtown Asheville. These tours "creep" it real with local guides and authentic paranormal equipment such as Dousing Rods, EMF Meters, and Ambient Temperature Thermometers! There are five spooktacular walking tours to choose from, or you can book a private excursion. You will need to keep your pups leashed during your adventure, and make sure you bring waste bags for when they get the poo scared out of them!

The Mills River Dog Park gives the dogs of Canton a wonderful place to scamper leash-free. This newly built park has separate enclosures for overgrown lap dogs and those big at heart, giving everyone the opportunity to play safely. There are several benches for owners to relax on and water access for those thirsty terriers. Parched puppy parents can quench their thirst at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, just a ball's throw away! Pups are welcome on the back porch while their owners try the various brews and delicious appetizers. This brewery even has a gift shop with treats, collars, and beer bottle squeaky toys!

A trip to the Patton Avenue Pet Company is a treat for any dog! This hometown chain is dubbed “Asheville’s favorite pet store” and boasts three downtown locations. PAPCo offers a large selection of quality pet foods, K-9 clothing, toys, leashes, and accessories. They even have a prong-collar trade-in program, where they give store credit for bringing in prong collars (which can be dangerous if misused). The shop near Lucerne Park even features a small play area, which is free for furry patrons to use! The friendly staff and pawesome selection will have your fur children begging to come back!
