Traveling with your dog can be fun for both human and K-9, especially in Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains! Long known for being a dog-friendly city, Asheville has accommodated man’s best friend to such a degree that we have a Dog Welcome Center! See our Pet-Friendly Guide.

Many downtown Asheville restaurants welcome dogs onto their outdoor patio- offering water bowls, dog biscuits and even a dog menu! There are also many dog friendly breweries where well behaved pooches are welcome throughout both indoor and outdoor spaces. Asheville even has a dog-friendly bakery serving up freshly baked all-natural treats, cakes, party trays, biscuits and more!
Stop by Asheville’s Dog Welcome Center (the first official in the United States!). It's located at The Dog Door on Battle Square in downtown Asheville. They have potty areas, water fountains, free goody bags and info on dog-friendly attractions in Asheville. Read more on Asheville Dog City USA.
