Asheville is literally high on life in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western Carolina – elevation 2,134 feet – and add a couple more feet for pets, who are figuratively put on a pedestal here. In the 2008 book, "The Geography of Bliss," Asheville was named one of the happiest places in the United States … a community where everybody smiles at passing pets (and pet sitters). There are blocks and blocks of pet friendly businesses and restaurants in the downtown section, down Biltmore Avenue, up Merrimon Avenue. Notably, the Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar invites dog sitters to settle into an easy chair and curl up around a good book, a glass of wine, and their pet. Traveling out of town and can't bring Fido? No problem, pet parents in need of home dog boarding and pet sitting in Asheville trust DogVacay.com.
Cooler in summer than most of the South with spectacular vistas perfect for long dog walks, Asheville made the 10 Most Beautiful Places in America list on "Good Morning America." DogVacay.com pet sitters love to visit the three dedicated dog parks and join tourists for such polished, pet friendly attractions as the North Carolina Arboretum (65 acres of manicured gardens, 10 miles of trails) and the world-renowned Biltmore Estate (250 acres of landscaping, trails, winery, mansions and opulence). Travel with peace of mind knowing your pup can run through piles of leaves with a fantastic Asheville home dog boarding or dog sitting host. Your dog will thank you!
