“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!

Dog Walking in Horse Shoe

Nestled in Henderson County, North Carolina is the small town of Horse Shoe. This town took its name from a nearby meander in the French Broad River that is shaped like a horse's shoe. Although the community is small, Horse Shoe is still home to six veterinarians for to keep resident and visiting dogs in the best of health.

If your dog is itching to run around in the park, then head to Etowah Park, which offers 18-acres of park fun for your dog to enjoy. The park has a covered pavilion, picnic tables, a playground, tennis courts, and a soccer field. If you dog loves to sniff and explore, check out the walking trail that Etowah Park has to enjoy a nice hike.

Since Horse Shoe is such a small town, there aren’t any local restaurants that you and Fido can eat at together. Luckily, Asheville is just a car ride away and home to a plethora of dog friendly restaurants that the two of you can dine at together. Check out Sunny Point Café, a family-owned establishment that serves upscale made-from-scratch food in a cozy atmosphere. Their outdoor patio is dog friendly and welcomes your leashed dog to join you for a tasty salad or burgers.
