Posana in Asheville Creates Menu for Dogs

ID-10055327Hooray for Posana, a restaurant at 1 Biltmore Avenue in Asheville. Recognizing that plenty of dog lovers dot the Asheville streets, Posana has not only welcomed dogs to their outdoor patio, the restaurant has also created a menu especially for culinary canines, according to a recent report in Mountain Xpress.

The menu was kicked off on March 7 in a nod to "Dine to be Kind," a fundraising event in which Posana, along with over sixty other local restaurants, contributed a portion of sales to Asheville Humane Society. Martha Pollay, co-owner of Posana, "worked really hard to find things that were pretty lean and good for dogs to eat," says Peter Pollay, co-owner and executive chef.

"Homemade biscuits, grilled Carolina Bison burgers, grilled Ashely Farms chicken breast, Brasstown Beef doggie meatloaf and a dessert dish of bacon soy doggie ice cream make up the canine menu," reports Mountain Xpress. "Prices range from $3-$8. All orders are served in dog dishes."

So next time you're in downtown Asheville with your doggie, remember that you'll find both a warm welcome and a special menu at Posana.

Going to Europe can be tough for dog owners. You spend the whole trip worrying about your beloved pet, stuck in a kennel, when you should be having a good time. So why not bring your dog with you? It’s not as much of a hassle as you might think.

Craig Manor, a resort overlooking Lake Windermere in England's lakes region that welcomes dogs, has prepared a very useful infographic guide that takes you step by step through the whole process of entering Europe with your dog. It covers things such as what the legal requirements are, booking a flight, choosing an airline, what to check when picking a destination and how to make sure your dog is ready to fly.

The guide is intended to simplify a process that once seemed daunting, into something a lot more straightforward. That way both you and your dog will be able to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

7 Tips to Keep Your Dog Happy and Safe While Traveling

Guest Post by Jennifer Scott

ID-1001930Taking a vacation is meant to be a relaxing endeavor, but when it comes to traveling with a dog there can be a lot of added stress. It’s important to make sure that your companion is safe and comfortable, especially on long, curvy rides on mountain roads. Here are seven tips for safe pet travel:

1. Visit the vet’s office first. You want to be sure that your pet is ready to hit the open road (or open air) health-wise, especially since you won’t be close to his regular doctor while you’re away. Further, many airlines require a certificate of veterinary inspection within 10 days of traveling.

2. Be wary of harsh weather conditions. If you’re flying during the summer or winter months, be sure to check that the airline will accommodate for extreme temperatures. This is especially important if your pet will take the trip below the cabin. If you’re taking a winter weekend getaway to the mountains with your pup, pack him his own blankets and sweaters to protect him from the cold.

3. Choose the right crate for your pet. Crates are required for pets to travel via plane, and an excellent option for car rides. (They’re also a good way to keep pets polite while staying in hotels or with a loved one.) Make sure the crate large enough to allow him to stand, turn, and lie down with plenty of ventilation. It should have a leak proof bottom and be lined with absorbent material like a towel or blanket in case of potty accidents. A “live animal” label should be placed in a clearly visible spot on the outside.

4. Pack a travel kit. Even if your pet is a tenured traveler, the process can be quite stressful for animals. Put together a travel kit for him full of his favorite goodies and toys to create a sense of familiarity: his food, water bowl, bed or blanket, and a couple of his favorite toys. If you’re flying, you may want to consider leaving him a T-shirt that smells like you for added reassurance.

5. Look out for safety hazards. Though you’ll want a leash with you, don’t leave it in the crate as it could be a serious choking risk. Loose collars can pose a similar problem, so find the happy medium between too snug and too loose. Dogs will appreciate a good chew bone to keep their minds occupied, but make sure it won’t break into small pieces that he could choke on (especially on a bumpy flight or road trip).

6. Figure breaks into your travel time. Especially if you’re going on a lengthy car ride, plan to take pit stops every two hours or so to give your pet a break. Give dogs a potty walk and allow them a little extra time to run around, explore the mountain scenery, or play with a ball or Frisbee; it’ll make him feel less restless and maybe even burn off enough energy to let him snooze during the drive.

7. Consider boarding your pet. Though it’s difficult to leave your beloved pet behind, however temporarily, it may actually be better for him to skip the stress of travel. You can find a responsible pet sitter who would love to care for your companion, and with today’s technology you can easily stay updated on his stay with daily photos and video chats. Think of it as your pet taking his own vacation in a safe, compassionate environment!

Traveling with a pet can be tricky, but with the right tools and approach even the ruff-est rides can be enjoyable!

A Complete Guide to Pet Travel - Infographic

Planning a trip with your best friend?  Before you do, it's vital that you plan ahead. This helps you keep in mind the best interests of your dog. Traveling with your pet can be either an amazing bonding experience or a stressful nightmare. Proper planning and preparation takes the bite out of your stress.

The first decision you will have to make is whether to bring your pet with you on your trip. Will you have enough free time during your travels to attend to your pet? Not all pets are suited for travel and some pets don’t like to travel. All over the world, millions of pets and pet parents travel every day. The increase in popularity of pet travel has meant many of the leading hotel chains worldwide are now pet friendly.

An Australian organization, Greyhounds as Pets, has produced a handy infographic that gives you all you need to have a fun-filled holiday with your treasured family member. You can download the infographic at the link below.

Summer Travel Tips from the ASPCA

Planning-a-family-vacation-read-these-travel-safety-tips-first(From the ASPCA Blog)

Summer travel season is in full swing, and we think trips are always more fun when you bring your furry friends along. If you’re planning to take a vacation this summer with your pets in tow, we’ve got you covered.

In the car:

Taking a road trip? Here are a few car travel safety tips brought to you by Subara, an ASPCA supporter.  

Practice makes perfect: It’s a good idea to practice having your pet ride along for a series of short car trips leading up to your big trip.

Ride safely: Keep your pets safe and secure in the car by having them ride in a well-ventilated crate or carrier. The crate should be large enough for your pet to stand, sit, lie down and turn around in. Secure your pet’s crate so it will not slide or shift in the event of an abrupt stop.

Road trip snacks: Be sure to pack plenty of water, and avoid feeding your pet in a moving vehicle. Your pet's travel-feeding schedule should start with a light meal three to four hours prior to departure.

For a full list of car travel safety tips, visit our Pet Care section.

Traveling by plane:

Unless your furry friend is small enough to ride under your seat on a plane, the ASPCA advises avoiding air travel with pets. However, if you must bring your pet along on your flight, it’s best to plan ahead. We recommend you book a direct flight if possible. Here are a few other suggestions:

Careful with crates: Prior to your trip, purchase a USDA-approved shipping crate that is large enough for your pet to stand, sit and turn around in comfortably.

IDs, please: Be sure to mark the crate with the words “Live Animal,” as well as your contact information and a photo of your pet. Make sure all vaccinations are up-to-date and that your pet has been microchipped for identification purposes.

In-flight food: Attach a pouch of your pet’s food to the outside of her crate, and freeze water in a dish for your pet to drink as it melts throughout the flight.

For more air travel safety tips, visit our Pet Care section.

No matter where you’re headed this summer, please be sure your pet is wearing an ID tag at all times. Happy trails, and safe travels!


How to Find Your Best Friend's "Home Away From Home"

Guest Post by Joshua Goldstein
 
DfkennelsSo you've bought your flight tickets, or mapped out the roads you will be driving. You took the days off work and cleared your calendar. The big day is approaching and the hardest part lays in front of you. Picking a kennel. You can almost hear the eerie piano music that plays in the background as the horror stories we associate with the word "Kennel" run through your head. 
 
Pause. Take three deep breaths. And smile. Sure, in a perfect world we would always be able to find a friend to watch our 4-legged children. But since we are all tired of canceling our plans just because we don't have a reliable place to watch our dogs, here are some helpful tips to finding your best friend's Home Away From Home.
 
Ask to take a tour of the kennel: You will enjoy your vacation a lot more when you can visualize the yard your dog will be playing in and the kennel they will be sleeping in. This is also your opportunity to get to know the people that will be taking care of your dogs.  
 
Ask the right questions: Find out exactly how much outdoor playtime your dog will have each day. What time the kennel locks them up for sleep. Is there someone present overnight. Do they require proof of vaccinations (avoid kennels that do not require you to provide proof of vaccinations). 
 
Ask what makes them different: You are looking for a long term relationship with your kennel. A place you can rely on. To take care of all your dogs for years to come and a place that your dogs will look forward to going.  A kennel should not just be a business. It's a lifestyle. Like devoting your life to childcare. Look for a kennel where dogs are family and not just a transaction. 
 
Now all that's left is a quick search for kennels in your area. Expand your results by clicking on more results at the bottom of the A, B, C options Google provided based on proximity, and look for a kennel with good user reviews. A good dog boarding facility will have garnered more than just a couple of reviews. Don't be afraid to broaden your search area. Sometimes you may need to drive 50 or 60 miles to find the perfect match, but it is not something you will have to do on a daily basis and our pups are worth it. Give your favorites a call and book your tour. You know all the questions to ask so you can pack your bags relaxed, knowing that your kennel has everything under control.

Restaurants and Your Dog

Dining dog A surprising number of dog lovers would like to take their dogs with them to restaurants. This is not an impossible dream. While it is rare (and sometimes illegal) for restaurants to permit dogs inside the premises, restaurants with outdoor dining facilities are often accommodating to dog owners, as long as local ordinances do not prohibit dogs from being in restaurants.

Happily, many restaurants in the Carolina mountains welcome dogs in outdoor seating areas as long as they are well-behaved. Some restaurants may restrict the offer to small dogs only, however. Asheville and Greenville are particuarly dog friendly. Of course, it always pays to call a restaurant in advance to inquire about their dog policy.

If you're traveling with your pet in Arizona, California, Florida or New York, or in the Chicago area, check out the "Dining with Dogs" website, www.diningdogs.com. The site lists dog-friendly restaurants (including reviews) in these areas. Who knows, as the site expands, restaurants in the Carolina mountains might someday be listed. (Offer to post reviews of local restaurants and it could happen sooner than you think!)

CANINE CRUISIN': Cashiers, NC

Cashiers village green Cashiers is one of those places you and your dog won't easily forget. While it is about 1-1/2 hours southwest of Asheville, its elevation is higher -- 3500 feet -- and that makes it considerably cooler. This charming, quaint, upscale town has both mountains and lakes -- the smaller Cashiers Lake and the larger Lake Glenville, where you'll find pet-friendly rentals (check out the lakeview cottage or cabin at www.sugarbearlodge.com, for example) and water sports of all kinds, including kayaks and pontoon boats for rent. There are a number of public boat launches and low spots where your dog can paddle around -- take Pine Creek Road off of Route 107 in Glenville to reach them.

Woofgang-cashiers Cashiers is a worthy destination for its shops and restaurants, but there are some notable spots that are great for your pup, too. There is the Woof Gang Bakery on Pillar Drive, just off the center of town, where you can lavish your dog with baked treats, natural foods, and plenty of boutique and accessory items. Also in the center of town, at the intersection of Routes 107 and 64, is the Village Green -- a beautiful 12-acre park with flat walking trails, including one that wanders through natural wooded forest. The park features sculptures, a gazebo, a chldren's playground, a picnic area, and more.

Half an hour away, and at an even higher elevation, is Highlands -- worth the trip if you like a winding road leading to tony shops along a busy main drag. (You'll find a pet store called Whiskers there too.)

For more information about Cashiers, visit the CANINE CRUISIN' page.


Safe Car Travel with Your Dog

Dog-harness A recent survey of "dog parents" conducted by the American Automobile Association revealed some disturbing facts. For one thing, 59 percent of those responding said they participating in at least "one distracting behavior" while they were driving with a dog. For another, more than half of the respondents said they pet their dog while driving, and 21 percent allow their dog to sit in their laps.

The ASPCA suggests that drivers with dogs in the car keep their pets safe and secure in the car's back seat in a well-ventilated crate, pet carrier, or specially made harness. A crate should be large enough for standing, sitting, lying down, and turning around, and it should be secured so it doesn't slide. Click here to read the ASPCA's top 10 tips for safe care travel with your pet.


CANINE CRUISIN': Mt. Mitchell, NC

Mtmitchell-dogs If you're looking for a cool (sometimes even cold) spot to take your dog, Mt. Mitchell's the place. It's a perfect destination on a hot summer day, and just as delightful during the fall.

Just under 6700 feet high, yet easily reachable via car, Mt. Mitchell offers spectacular views and temperatures at least 10 degrees, and sometimes as much as 20 degrees, cooler than Asheville.

Mt. Mitchell is in Yancey County, 33 miles north of Asheville, accessible via the Blue Ridge Parkway (mile marker # 355). Off the Blue Ridge, turn left on NC 128, which leads to Mt. Mitchell State Park. You can drive to the top of Mt. Mitchell and walk your dogs a relatively short way to get to the observation deck (see photo). There's a restaurant at the park, but the shady picnic area is a better bet for dogs. There are a number of hiking trails in the park as well.

Go to the CANINE CRUISIN' page for additional information about Mt. Mitchell.

The resort’s exclusive dog park features a fenced walking trail bordering the natural wetlands around the park. Inside the trail, guests can choose from a variety of different play areas, including a 3,300 square-foot area covered in artificial turf, a 4,500 square-foot area with shade trees, and a 1,300 square-foot “canines only” water park.

Camp Unleashed Coming to Asheville, Sept. 23-26

CampuUnleashed The concept of Camp Unleashed, which started in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, is to get dogs and their owners together for an extended weekend of fun and learning. After an initial introductory period, dogs remain for the most part unleashed during a four day, three night outing that includes everything from hiking to agility to canoeing to learning about dog behavior. It's a jam-packed agenda, but dogs and their owners can do as little or as much as they wish.

Now Camp Unleashed is coming to Asheville, September 23 - 26. (It will actually be held at Blue Star Camps, a 500-acre property outside Hendersonville.)

For more information about Camp Unleashed, watch the accompanying video, and go to: http://campunleashed.com/asheville.html

Craggy Gardens, Blue Ridge Parkway, NC

Max Patch, NC

Montreat, NC


Dog-friendly Black Mountain, NC

Black Mountain is a charming, laid back town east of Asheville, right off Route 40. It's also remarkably dog friendly.

Blackmountaindogpark5 In Black Mountain, you'll find a small but nicely appointed off-leash dog park at the River Walk Park. It is a fenced-in, bark mulched area with shaded seating for owners and a water spigot for dogs. There is also a plastic doggie pool for splashing and cool-downs. It's known primarily to locals but anyone can use it. Just head for the Bi-Lo shopping center on NC 9, gong south out of Black Mountain. Go around the back and to the left of Bi-Lo and you'll see a parking area and the entrance to the dog park.

Blackmountain-laketomahawk1 Another great dog-friendly spot is Lake Tomahawk Park. It's located at 401 S. Laurel Circle Drive, not far from the center of town. This lovely lake has a half-mile flat path all the way around it, perfect for a low-impact walk with your pal (on-leash, please).

While in Black Mountain, be sure to visit Bone-A-Fide Bakery in the heart of town at Cherry Street Square. The bakery features homemade treats and doggie birthday cakes, as well as dog food, soaps and shampoos, collars and leashes, doggie clothing, and gifts. Bone-A-Fide is open Monday 1-6 PM, Tuesday through Saturday 11 AM - 6 PM, and Sunday 1 - 5 PM.

CANINE CRUISIN': DuPont State Forest - Part 2

Fawn lake In Part 1 of Carolina Mountain Dog's coverage of DuPont State Forest, we discussed the forest's primary attraction: its waterfalls. But there are other natural attributes of DuPont State Forest that make great destinations for you and your doggie.

Consider, for example, that there are some 90 miles of trails and dirt roads of varying difficulty, so you can hike to your heart's content. Then there are several other water features, aside from the falls, that make for enjoyable and refreshing visits.

Fawn Lake is one such destination. This lovely lake is hidden away in an access area beyond the falls, so it attracts less attention and therefore less crowds. Fawn lake has a small grassy area and sand sloping down to the water's edge, plus a short wooden dock that swimmers use for diving. The lake is very dog-friendly; in fact, no one seems to mind dogs being off-leash. Your dog will love frolicking in the shallow, warm water near shore or chasing a ball or stick further out. Be aware, however, that there is no shade, so come prepared with sunscreen, hats, etc.

Dupontwithdogs Another interesting place to take your dog is Corn Mill Shoals, which is on the way from DuPont State Forest to Fawn Lake. Corn Mill Shoals features a slippery but inviting shallow swimming area on the Little River.

Finally, try Lake Imaging if you're looking for a quiet spot for a picnic. It's a pond-sized lake with a covered picnic pavilion, located in its own access area, just before the Hooker Falls access area.

For directions to Fawn Lake, Corn Mill Shoals, and Lake Imaging, visit the CANINE CRUISIN' page.


CANINE CRUISIN': DuPont State Forest, NC - Part 1

Dupont18 DuPont State Forest, located between Hendersonville and Brevard, NC, is a hiker, biker, and dog owner's paradise. This 10,000-acre forest has numerous outstanding trails (some of the best mountain biking trails anywhere), waterfalls, lakes, and dense, cool forest. It definitely qualifies as a premier Canine Cruisin' destination -- so exceptional that it deserves more than one blog post. That's why Carolina Mountain Dog will cover it in two parts.

This first part covers DuPont's most visited attractions -- its waterfalls. There are six different falls, Triple Falls, High Falls, Hooker Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Wintergreen Falls, and Grassy Creek Falls. Each one has its own unique qualities. For a description of each, visit http://www.dupontforest.com/attractions.asp

The falls are accessible from two parking areas, the Hooker Falls Access Area, and the Buck Forest Access Area, which has access to the high falls. If you park at the Hooker Falls area, you can walk all the way up a path and see several of the falls.

For driving directions to DuPont State Forest and additional information, visit the CANINE CRUISIN' page. In Part 2, we'll explore some of DuPont Forest's other natural attractions.


Greenville, SC: A Dog's Best Friend

Falls park greenville Greenville, SC is a dog-friendly city, worthy of a visit with your pooch.

Dogs can go off-leash at Canine Corner at Cleveland Park, a fenced, mulched dog park on Woodland Way in Greenville. For leashed walks, try Falls Park in downtown Greenville (pictured here), right along the Reedy River. It features waterfalls, gardens, and the beautiful Liberty Bridge. For ambitious excursions, there's the Greenville Hospital System Swamp Rabbit Tram Trail. It's more than 13 miles long and goes from Travelers Rest to Greenville, running along the Reedy River.

Many Greenville restaurants welcome dogs in the outdoor seating areas. If you're looking for special treats just for Fido (baked gourmet goodies as well as boutique items), head over to The Barkery Bistro, 118 North Main Street.

For lake recreation, Paris Mountain State Park is just four miles away from the city. Paris Mountain features 15-acre Lake Placid, hiking trails, and picnic and camping areas.

And if you're from the area and looking to adopt a pet, don't forget about the Greenville Humane Society.


Cruisin' the Lakes

Furman lake Over the past year, Carolina Mountain Dog has covered a number of beautiful lakes in our CANINE CRUISIN' and POOCH PATHS sections. With the warm weather upon us, lakes make a great outing for you and your dog, so we thought it might be useful to provide you with links to all of the lake stories in one place. Enjoy!
