“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!

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 Woodfin

Woodfin, North Carolina is a close-knit community within metropolitan Asheville. Located just north of downtown, this hip area offers urban creature comforts with views of the mountain wilderness just waiting for your next big adventure.

The relaxed vibe in Asheville means you’ll find pups accompanying their humans in a wide variety of downtown shops and restaurants. On your first trip downtown, take a stop by the Dog Door Behavior Center & Dog Hugger Outfitters and check in at the Doggy Visitor’s Center, where your baby can pick up a goody bag and navigation kit with maps and tips for this dog-friendly city. 

You may need the guidance, as there are 155 dog-friendly restaurants in Asheville and many brewery tasting rooms welcome dogs at outdoor patios. With so much beer and food, you’ll need exercise! The 1.7-mile Asheville Urban Trail is a self-guided downtown tour, including 30 works of art to view on your exploration; get a trail map online or at local businesses. 

Closer to home, Woodfin Riverside Park has paved walking trails, seasonal bathrooms, and a beautiful view of the French Broad River. If you’re looking to relax and enjoy an afternoon, you can even pick up a book at the free lending library, part of a series of small book-exchange outposts. Another library outpost is located at Roy Pope Memorial Park in central Woodfin, where you’ll also find a gravel walking path. 

With a veterinary practice in Woodfin and Asheville Pet Supply just over the southern town limits, you have everything you need right at your paw-tips. Your furry friend can even join you for a meaty dinner on the patio at Moe’s BBQ and a wide range of other restaurants just south of Woodfin along Hwy 25.

Montford Historic District

The historic Asheville neighborhood of Montford is due south of Woodfin and adjacent to UNC-A. The neighborhood itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places thanks to the impressive 1890s – 1920s homes built during Asheville’s Vanderbilt glory days. None of these 600 buildings is quite as impressive as Biltmore House, but they capture the various architectural styles of the era, from Victorian to Arts and Crafts. Montford is also home to lovely Montford Park, where the amphitheater hosts outdoor Shakespeare festivals in summer (and the lawns and walking trails perform year round). Though leashes are officially required, the neighborhood has a relaxed attitude about well-behaved dogs.

Five Points

The UNC-Asheville campus is directly south of Woodfin and next to the Five Points neighborhood. The UNC-A mascot isn’t the Bulldog for nothing! A network of pup-friendly trails and footpaths wind through campus. Download a “Trails for Everyone” map with routes ranging from 0.25 to 2.1 miles, or you can just stroll the shops and restaurants of Five Points. The pawpular disc golf course at Mullins Park might also give your furry friends some fun. The lawns and woods are also good for a stretch, plus the Reed Creek Greenway trail leads in both directions from the south end of Mullins Park, heading south into Five Points and east towards Weaver Park.

Blue Ridge Parkway

Blue Ridge Parkway

Ever wished you could enjoy a ride in the car as much as your furry friends? Try the Blue Ridge Parkway. This scenic road from Cherokee, NC to Shenandoah National Park in Virginia passes through Asheville and provides unrivaled views of the Appalachians and lots of places to get out and walk. If you hop on heading towards Black Mountain, look for the Craven Gap Trailhead at milepost 377.4. Craven Gap Trail is part of the statewide Mountains to Sea Trail, but the 4-mile roundtrip from the parking pull-out to Bull Gap is a more reasonable day trip. Or, drive to Bull Gap along the Parkway instead; park there and catch the Rattlesnake Lodge Trail for a 2-mile there-and-back trip to the ruins of the historic Rattlesnake Lodge. You can also truck on to Black Mountain and catch the Craggy Pinnacle Trail.

On the west bank of the French Broad River just south of downtown is a doggy hotspot for all of Asheville: the French Broad River Park and Dog Park. The fenced off-leash play area provides a waste station, but note that there is no separate space for smaller pups. Who cares? You’re going to want to explore the whole park! The waterfront views and shallow swimming access in the river are pretty puptastic, so bring a towel or three. If you want to walk off the water, hit the trail: The 2 mile French Broad River Greenway connects to Carrier Park to the west.

Biltmore Village

For a walk through history (an expensive walk through the Gilded Age, to be more specific) head to the Biltmore House and adjacent Biltmore Village. The house was built in the 1890s by George Vanderbilt to create an American palace of European grandeur. While your dog can't take a tour of the home, he can tag along while you explore the exquisite 250-acre estate and gardens laid out by NY Central Park designer Frederick Law Olmstead. They're also welcome to stroll through the shopping and dining district surrounding the estate at Biltmore Village. Though it now caters to affluent visitors, this historic village was once the home of Vanderbilt's many estate employees.
