    Hi, I'm Tyler! I can't remember a time when there weren't dogs running around my house as a kid. I've taken care of my Miniature Australian Shepherd Izzy for almost 10 years now. A couple years back, our family was fortunate enough to adopt Izzy's niece, Tami! I think dogs deserve exercise and I'm happy to help make that happen!

    “I'm there for your dog as if he/she were my own!”

    I've loved dogs my entire life. I strive to be a good dog person, meaning I try to assist friends in training and gladly help out when needed. I have not met a dog I didn't like and vice versa. I have always had dogs of my own and made sure they were trained and socialized.

    “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!

    Hi my name is Bianca Moeller and I have been dog sitting and walking since I was about 10 years old. I grew up with dogs in the neighborhood and I currently have a small dog. I am very tentative to owner's instructions and to dog's mood.

    Hi, my name is Tyler and I'm from San Jose, California. I've been around dogs of all sizes my whole life but have owned labs and a boxer pointer mix. I have dog sat, boarded, and walked multiple dogs over the last two years for family and friends. Some of the breeds I have watched are shitzu, labrador retriever, and English mastiff. I am looking forward to meeting your furry friends!

    “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!

    When I was 5 years old my family got two dogs, who became the two animals that taught me responsibility. They also inspired my love for animals, and now I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology from North Carolina State University. I have worked as an animal care worker at the Asheville Humane Society, owned animals of a variety of species. I have experience administering various forms of medicine.

    “Positive reinforcement and lots of exercise :)”

    I've been pet sitting and dog walking for 10 years and currently own a dog, cat, and horse! I have experience dealing with difficult situations, behavioral issues, and I always put safety first. I have learned a lot from my own high energy red heeler, Rooney! I can take your dog for a high energy run or play, or an easy stroll around depending on their needs :)

    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!

    Downtown Black Mountain

    Just a few miles east of Swannanoa, the town of Black Mountain has a history of cultivating talented artists. You can take your pups with you to many art galleries and craft workshops in the area, including the Visions of Creation jewelry gallery on Cherry Street. If you've all been very, very good, pick out something sparkly for yourself and then head across the street to Bone-A-Fide Pet Boutique, where your pups can sniff out some delicious handmade creations of their own at the doggy bakery counter. It’s okay if they overindulge! Riverwalk Park is just three blocks away, and its fenced dog park means your buddies can run off the calories while you sit in the shade. Or, join them for an on-leash walk on the park’s half-mile trail.

    Tomahawk Avenue/Laurel Circle Drive

    On the northern edge of Black Mountain, sizable Lake Tomahawk Park has room to roam. A walking trail circles the 9-acre lake, perfect for barking at ducks. If no one is fishing from the pier and you brought towels, you can even try some dock diving into Lake Tomahawk. The park also connects to Black Mountain’s Greenway trail system. Follow the sidewalk east on Laurel Circle Drive to reach the Flat Creek Trail for some extra adventure. The trail extends north to Cotton Avenue and plans are in the works to lengthen it all the way to Montreat. Need to refuel? Share some nachos with your doggos at the outdoor tables at Ole’s Guacamoles, just south of the trailhead.

    The off-leash Azalea Dog Park, just 5 miles from Swannanoa, will have your pups slobbering all over themselves with excitement (not that it takes a whole lot). Azalea Park’s small- and large-dog fenced play areas have water and waste disposal stations, and the large-dog enclosure has a comfy gazebo for summer shade. Back on-leash, your dogs can also join you on the 155-acre park’s loop trail or disc golf course. If you or your pups have a literary bent, stop and check out the restored cabin on the park’s property. It was home to author Thomas Wolfe for the summer of 1937 during the final visit to his native Asheville before his untimely death.

    Pisgah National Forest

    On the southern edge of the Pisgah National Forest, Catawba Falls Trail has a satisfying effort-to-view payoff, at least if you like waterfalls. And, it’s just a 17-mile drive from Swannanoa. The trail itself is a 2.6-mile roundtrip from the parking area following the Catawba River north. You’ll pass the ruins of an early-20th century hydroelectric station, and then a series of scenic waterfalls as you climb about 300 feet in elevation. There are plenty of good splashing spots for your pups to cool off in the water, but keep them on-leash and far away from the slippery top of the falls. For a full day of adventure, note that the Pisgah National Forest's Kitsuma Creek Trailhead and Point Lookout Trailhead are both nearby.

    Why walk when you can drive? Better yet, do both! The Blue Ridge Parkway — one of America’s most scenic drives — intersects with Highway 77 just a few miles west of Swannanoa. At a total length of 469 miles spanning from NC to Shenandoah National Park in VA, you can see miraculous mountain vistas from the comfort of your car. Your pups will appreciate some pit stops, though, and there are plenty of side trails to try. One of the most accessible is at Craggy Gardens, due north of Swannanoa. The Craggy Pinnacle Trail (trailhead at milepost 364) takes you on a short but steep climb, and the views from the 5,892-foot summit are well worth the 1.5-mile roundtrip. The comparatively flat one-mile Craggy Gardens Trail explodes in color in early summer when the Catawba rhododendrons bloom.
