James Lyon of Ilio Canine Care.

Hosted by Guidon Brewing Co.
Complimentary four-week program Saturdays June 15th–July 6th @12 PM
Donations to the Blue Ridge Humane Society are appreciated!
Sign up on Facebook or call (828) 595-7976

This program will help you enjoy a beer at your favorite brewery in the company of your four-legged friends.

Many of us want to do the right thing and adopt a furry friend rather than buying one.
Unfortunately, we don’t know what these animals have been through and why they’re acting the way they are.
If you’ve been wanting to take your dog to a brewery or cafe, but are afraid of how they may behave, this program is for you.
