Weekend Get Away With Your Dog

As the weather warms up everyone is heading outdoors to enjoy the warmth and wonderful spring weather. Sometimes it is difficult to find a place where you can enjoy a relaxing weekend with your pets. Maybe you have a new dog or a dog that could use some training? We have the perfect solution for you! A longtime friend of Dr. Holman’s, Nan Wells, is owner and operator of Canine Connections Dog Training Vacation. Here is what Nan writes about this great vacation idea:

Nestled in the mountains just outside of charming Brevard, North Carolina lies the ultimate dog and owner vacation.  Stay in a guest house or lovely cabin on Black Knob, at altitudes of 3000 feet, with thousands of acres of forest surrounding you.  Come to "the Land of Waterfalls" and relax in the beauty of the forest enjoying the slow pace of the Western North Carolina mountains.  Bring your family and best friend for a week to explore this beautiful area with optional training sessions for you and your dog available.   You are centrally located to all the great places in this area.  Some of the many activities in the Brevard area are world-class trout fishing, hiking, rock climbing, rafting, river tubing, horseback riding, and mountain biking.   The Western Mountains of North Carolina are known for their hospitality so come and join us in the mountains for the ultimate vacation experience with your best friend. 

The gateway to the Pisgah National Forest with its 157,000 acres of forest and its hundreds of miles of hiking trails lies just below.   At the top of the Forest road lies the Blue Ridge Parkway with high altitudes of over 6400 feet and some of the most beautiful sights on the entire parkway.   On the other side of you is the DuPont State Forest with 10,000 acres of trails and stunning waterfalls.  Within minutes lies the city of Asheville with its historic downtown and the Biltmore Estate.   In the opposite direction are the quaint towns of Hendersonville and Lake Lure.   Head south and the road takes you over to Caesar's Head State Park in South Carolina.   Yet another way will lead you to Lake Toxaway and further on to the towns of Highlands and Cashiers.

Our goal is to make this your best vacation ever!  During your vacation you can opt to receive customized training sessions with Nan Wells, APDT of Canine Connections Dog Training during your vacation stay with us or just enjoy our lovely pet friendly lodging.  Dog training vacation is dedicated to helping you and your dog with your specific needs.  Whether it be therapy work, Canine Good Citizen, formal obedience, problem solving we will tailor a plan to meet your needs or simply advice on what to do, where to go and places you might enjoy taking your dog with.

Dog beds are provided within the lodging and we have exercise pens and crates for your use when visiting should you need them.  We also carry a good assortment of training supplies, treats and toys.  And of course we are always available to watch your dog(s) while you enjoy some of the attractions where you might not wish to take them.  Dogs are allowed most places here, even at most of the outdoor dining restaurants and if you spend a day at the Biltmore Estate they have now even added a kennel for your convenience during your tour of the home.
