Dogs are pack animals; that is to say, your four-legged buddy who has his favorite spot on the couch is part of your family's little pack. Our  lovable little friends need to feel part of the pack, and that means staying with you on vacation. Luckily, Asheville is not only an awesome place for humans but a dog paradise as well.

Staying in even the best boarding kennel can be a stressful experience for your beloved family member. Most boarding facilities, even the really good ones, are still an unfamiliar environment for your dog. I mean, let's face it, no kennel has your favorite shoes your dog likes to chew on? You think the kennel is going to play hide and seek with the DVR remote control? Dogs will see a kennel as being forcibly removed from their "pack." So why not keep the "pack" together during your Asheville vacation? Your dog will be free to enjoy a wealth of new sites and sounds all in the familiar surroundings of your family.

2. Cost Savings

Certainly your pet’s welfare must always be the primary factor in deciding whether to take him or her with you. However, there are situations where a balanced cost analysis can be useful for making a decision – especially if you’ve already spent a lot of money on your holiday.There are manner of factors which can affect your costs, including your chosen destination, the period of time you will be away, for and the price of the individual boarding kennel you’re considering
