The core mission of the Canine Social Club of Asheville is to provide a place where dogs go to be stimulated both mentally and physically. The Social Club is not just a “daycare” where dogs are dropped off and left to their own devices, but a place that offers dogs supervision through mental games, environmental stimulation and social interaction.

Dr. Mark Ledyard, a veterinarian at Charlotte Street Animal Hospital, along with his wife Ginna Reid, a special education teacher for 13 years, recognized the need for the Canine Social Club of Asheville. They wanted to provide a place that would nurture, support, and encourage dogs’ fundamental need to be social. They worked in collaboration with The Dog Door of Asheville to provide state-of-the-art training to employees so that your canine members receive the highest quality care and interaction while visiting the social club.

Our goal at the Canine Social Club of Asheville is not to be a “daycare” but rather an “enrichment facility.”  We will always strive to be on the cutting edge of proven dog care in a social environment and welcome any feedback you might have so that we can continue to provide the most optimal experience.
