Buncombe County Opens Its First Dog Park
May 25 @ 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
Buncombe County Sports Park

It can be ruff out there for our canine companions, but we have pawsitively great news. Buncombe County’s first-ever dog park is now open at our Sports Park in Candler. While this is a soft open, the park features two fenced-in play areas; one for large dogs and one for smaller pups. “We do have plans to add other amenities and water fountains,” exclaims Recreation Services Program Coordinator Mac Stanley. “People are very excited about this new opportunity. Since it was announced, we have gotten letters of support as well as many emails questioning when will the project be completed.”

So join us in a round of apaws as we celebrate the opening of this new venue for hot dogs and cool people. “It’s an amazing place to bring your dog to run free without a leash and interact with other dogs,” says Stanley. “One of my favorite aspects of this new dog park is being able to cultivate a community. Hopefully, this dog park will be instrumental in connecting dogs as well as people within the community.” Paw-yeah, sounds great.

Dog Days at the Veterans Healing Farm
May 25 @ 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm
VHF

Veterans Healing Farm (VHF) is excited to announce Service Dog
Training in collaboration with the Warrior Canine Connection (WCC) of Asheville. Classes will
take place at the VHF, located at 38 Yale Rd., Hendersonville, NC from April 6 to May 26th,
weekly on Wednesdays from 2:30-4:00. There are four spots available with each veteran having
their own dog to train. “This is the first class in what we hope will be an ongoing program,” said
Al Yeck, Executive Director for the VHF.
WCC utilizes a Mission Based Trauma Recovery model to help recovering Warriors reconnect
with life, their families, their communities, and each other. Warrior trainers are taught to praise
and provide treats to their dogs when they experience a startling event, such as hearing a car
backfire. Rather than turning inward to focus on their past trauma, the trainers must get outside
of their own heads to focus on the dogs and their mission to help another Veteran. Additionally,
dogs offer opportunities for Warrior trainers – who often isolate themselves from society – to
experience positive interactions with members of the community. Their training requires
emotionally numb Warriors to demonstrate positive emotion in order to successfully teach their
dogs.
