Paws in 

We can help you discover how to unleash the best in your dog

Local Attractions

So, once you have met with Paws in Motion and your dog is happy, depending on what your family is into, try these:

Awesome hiking is available in Dupont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest.  We love Cat Gap Trail (moderate) and Looking Glass Rock (kinda hard).  If ya don't hike much Looking Glass may impair you for a few days.  It's a mild stroll in the beginning, and then...bring water.
Once you've had your water, it may be time to visit Beer City, USA. Asheville, NC is home to lots of brews, but Brevard is catching up! Check out
Brevard Brewing Co. and Oskar Blues Brewery (just a 10 minute drive from us :)

The Oskar Blues Trolley is a safe and fun way to get to what's happenin'.

Brevard Brewing Co.
is a great place downtown to chill and sip some local brew.  They also have local music playing on most nights.  Spencer and the String Ticklers are one of our favorites.

During the snow season here, you can visit Wolf Laurel or Ski Beech. 
A lot of the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed for the winter season, but there are lots of great trails open for business.
If you are looking for organic health foods,
Healthy Harvest (828-885-2599) is a great place.  Stella is super nice.  They are across the street from College Plaza and The ABC store (in case you need something not so organic)

Tina and I believe in doing business with places that treat people greatly, so the businesses that we listed are the ones that have treated us and our friends well, consumer sovereignty.

Bracken Mountain Bakery has great breads, tea, coffee, and croissants. Our favorite is the Sunflower Oat bread.  The dog sitting out front is Bracken. It is on Broad St next to Local Color.

We have lots of great places to visit here, and while your dog is with us we always have great things to do.  We often visit places to socialize our dogs.  Here I am with Mya at
Downtown Chocolates.

Food Matters Market is a great place to find organic produce, local grass fed beef (Hickory Nut Gap), and many other health foods. They are in Strauss Park--ask for Skip--he is awesome. They also serve sandwiches and soup if you are hungry for lunch.

Duckpond Pottery
(Hwy 276) has music on Thursday nights during the summer and has some of the coolest pottery around.  Nick just put in a new pizza oven, so the sky is the limit for fun.

A big attraction is the Mountain Song Festival at the Brevard Music Center.  It benefits the Transylvania County Boys and Girls Club.  It features cool people like Shannon Whitworth and Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers.  If you need your dog to have a great time while you are, give us a call.

Brevard Music Center is in full swing.  If you love Beethoven, Mozart, or some opera, they are ready to share their extraordinary talent. Lawn seats are available and make for a great picnic. 

If you're into cakes, pies, and other sweets, Blue Ridge Bakery is definitely a place to visit.  Matthew's favorite is the chocolate pie and Tina's favorite is the apple pie.  They are located on Broad St.
(828) 883-8444

Rockin' Bowl is a cool place--we have been to many bowling alleys in the southeast, and this bowling alley is the best!  They have Karaoke on Saturday nights, and they have $1 bowling nights on Wednesdays.  The lanes are smooth, and the employees are so friendly. You never have to be afraid of a shady crowd--this is a family friendly place, and it is a non-smoking place, and it doesn't smell like it ever was. The equipment is new, the beer is cold, and the music is rockin'.

       Attention Vacationers

Alrighty, so while you're in the area you'll need a place for your family to sleep.  There are some hotels to choose from. There is a Hampton inn and a Holiday inn Express in Brevard.  They didn't seem to accept dogs last time I checked.  Your family dog is welcome to stay with us while you get great rest in your hotel room.  While your family is checking out the awesome local attractions, you won't have to keep in mind how long your dog has been alone, he won't be alone.  He'll be enjoying his vacation as well.  We'll see to it that he gets exercise, play, and lots of affection. See the slumber party page for details.

This is us at Dupont State Forest (Triple Falls)  Definitely take the family there.  Another great thing about Dupont is it is 5 min. From Paws in Motion, so before or after you hike your dog can become a part of our family.

If you're looking for a great Bed and Breakfast, this one is awesome.  The owners are a friendly couple with a GREAT dog, Copper.  This is the
Red House Inn.  It's located on Probart St. in Brevard.  It is close to everything, so you can walk around town.
