You won’t find a better choice in the Asheville area for your pets than Top Dog Kennel. They are anxious to please their clients and want you to give them any information that will enable them to give expert care to your pets. Everyone connected to Top Dog is warm, friendly and knowledgeable, fully capable and eager to meet your and your pets’ every need. I have taken my pets there for over ten years and would not go anywhere else.

★★★★★ My dog absolutely loved it here! Their rates are great and the property is wonderful.
I was really impressed by the fact that Michael took special note of my little Suki and worked on getting her to be more sociable with other dogs during her stay. She tends to be shy and get overwhelmed by multiple dogs but when I picked her up, she seemed very comfortable there.
The staff members were all lovely and professional and I love the options they offer for keeping my fur-babies active and happy during their stay.
I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a clean, safe, caring environment for a puppy vacation.

I wanted to say that you guys are not only great for dogs but also cats!  Our cat Jesse loves Top Dog, always comes home happy and in great shape.  He has stayed with you numerous times, and we appreciate your kindness to him and the special attention you pay to your cat visitors!

★★★★★ Top Dog Kennel was so good to our dogs, Bandit and Meya. They gave Meya the extra attention she needed to feel comfortable. We will be taking them back there again soon. Thank you, Michael, for your extra time with our babies.

The only kennel I will use. As a breeder/show/trainer, I want a kennel that understands DOGS and what their needs are, not a kennel worrying about curtains and decor! Staff is knowledgeable and always will to note any special requests. They deal with my spoiled dogs and give extra care to “disabled veteran”. Love them – recommend to all my clients!

Top Dog Kennel gives us peace of mind that our dog is well-taken-care of, safe and comfortable while we’re gone. The staff is friendly, professional and caring, and they truly make an effort to cater to our beloved pet’s particular needs. Also, we were permitted to tour the facility before deciding to board him here, which made us feel comfortable right from the start. We appreciate having Top Dog Kennel – thank you! :)
