Pet Resources


Your Pet Resource Guide for South Asheville and Arden.

Whether you are new to Asheville or simply have moved to the South Asheville / Arden area, you may need to re-establish pet care services.  My intention for this page is to provide you with a list of Asheville’s best pet care resources.  From Veterinarians that I have had to rely on for pet emergencies, to pet supply stores where I find the best products for clients and my own pets. I have had experience with all of these businesses and they are all top notch in service, experience, and reliability.

Why do we recommend Pet Behaviorists-Trainers vs. just a regular pet trainer? A behaviorist will help you learn how to better communicate with your pets and better understand the reasons behind the behavior.  A behaviorist is trained to detect what may be the root cause of an unwanted behaviors, and help you give your pets what they need to put them back on the road to balance and happiness.  A pet behaviorist will not only help your dog or cat work through issues, they will help you and your pets have a better relationship.

Asheville is home to Nationally recognized, and absolutely wonderful pet behaviorists.  Many of our clients have used the services of the three listed here, with stellar success.  We have met and observed each of these Behaviorists-Trainers working with clients, and these are our top three picks.




We don’t recommend just any old place for your pet supplies.  Our favorites pet supply stores in Asheville offer a carefully curated selection of the best pet supplies available.  These pet friendly stores are owned by knowledgeable, pet loving women who care deeply for well being of their pet customers.  They also take really great care of their staff, and train them to be an excellent resource for you.  From pet food (dogs, cats and small pets), to toys, interactive enrichment games, flea control, nutritional supplements, leashes, collars, doggie sweaters and outdoor gear – our favorite pet supply resources have the best of everything you need to completely spoil your pets rotten, in all the good ways.
