Local Dog-Friendly Activities

There are plenty of options for dog-lovers who want to chase after some fun. Here are a few ideas to show you the best spots for a doggone amazing time!

 

Make your walks a little more fun with some pet-friendly activities for some quality dog-time. Take a stroll over to our local dog friendly restaurants, or make your way to Myrtle Beach where dogs are allowed before 10 a.m. and after 5 p.m. until Labor Day.

 

Take a fast 10-minute drive over to YMCA’s Dog Park, where you’ll find shade as your dog socializes in one of the yards specifically designed for small or large dogs. Checkout a list of dog parks with reviews to see what the locals recommend!

 

We love our four-legged friends! Bring your dog to the office for a treat, or take them to our bark park and let them run free! We provide a quarter-mile walking trail around the pond, perfect for a relaxing walk where your curious dog can sniff the turtles and ducks. Keep an eye out for our pet stations throughout the community – we want to keep everyone safe and clean!

 

We hope you found some inspiration for the next adventure! Have fun exploring all of the convenient opportunities to enjoy a nice day out with your pet!
