My dogs are great company and I love to hang out with them. They make me laugh and give me reason to get out every single day. Atlanta is a great city to explore with your dog. Here are a few of my favorite Intown activities to share with my pups.
ParkGrounds: This awesome coffee shop in Reynoldstown has it all. Excellent coffee, fun baristas, free wifi, an incredibly affordable menu (including beer and wine) and an attached dog park. Take a walk, stop for a treat and let your dog play in the park. What a great way to start (or end) your day.
Railside Dog Park: This 2-acre dog park is the only off-leash dog park servicing Downtown Atlanta. The park offers a small dog area separate from the large dog area and amazing skyline views. Bring your dogs and mingle with neighbors from Castleberry Hill, Downtown, West End and Westview.
Splish Splash Doggie Bash: Oct 4-5. Every year at the end of the summer season Piedmont Park pool opens it’s gates to the dogs. Advanced tickets are $25 and all proceeds support the Piedmont Dog Park.
Morningside Nature Preserve: This hidden little gem consists of about 30 acres of forest on the northern edge of one of Atlanta’s oldest and most upscale neighborhoods. Hike, run or walk along the 2.5 mile trail. Take a break along the sandy shores of South Fork Peachtree Creek and let your dog go for a swim.
Blessing of the Pets: Saturday Sept 27 10:00-11:00 am. North Avenue Presbyterian Church in Midtown (just south of The Fox). Every year churches around Atlanta celebrate St. Francis of Assisi, renowned lover of all God’s creatures, with blessings of the pets. What a feel good way to spend the day with your favorite furry friend.
If you are in the market for a new home for you and your furry family, be sure to bookmark our website . It is important to know most condominium complexes have pet restrictions regarding number of pets, weight and breed. The most commonly banned breeds are Pit Bull, Rottweiler, Akita, Bernese, Chow Chow, Doberman, Husky and Rhodesian Ridgeback…mostly because these dogs are hard to insure. Check our website for a new and upcoming tool to search by pet restrictions before you plan your next move.
