Dogs are so much more than a pet. They are part of our families. That’s why when looking for a home, pet owners look for places that will be a good fit for not only themselves but also their furry loved ones. Nashville is a great city for those pet owners. Don’t have a pet? Did you know the Nashville Humane Association actually just started a new program that allows you to go on Doggy Dates? This program allows you to take the shelter dogs outside the shelter for the day and go for a walk, get a bite, or just give lots of ear scratches in the fresh air. So, whether you have your own furry loved one or have a buddy for the day, here are some of the pet-friendly parts of town.
Bring your fur baby to run and play with other dogs at the local dog park. Located on West End Avenue, this dog park is close to several parts of town.
This amazing park is big and has so much for your fur baby. It has a large open space for your dog to run and play, plus a walking loop. There are even some large rocks and benches for us humans to rest.
With large fields to run and play, Edwin Warner Dog Park offers a great place to bring your furry one and is located on Vaughn Road in Nashville across from the sports complex.
Mars Petcare, the company, also has a beautiful park located in Thompson’s Station. With beautiful wood fencing and paved walking paths, this one provides great spaces for the dogs and an amazing view for you. Mars Petcareis also one of the few workplaces that you can bring your pet to work.
Nashville is also full of great restaurants where your pet can tag along. Here are some better-rated ones.
With a large front porch where dogs are able to join the fun, you can enjoy a great handcrafted beer and tasty food. Don’t know what to get? I suggest The Champ burger. It won’t disappoint!
Get some delicious Tex-Mex and BBQ at Drifter’s BBQ. Drifter’s has a huge dog-friendly deck that you can enjoy. The BBQ Brisket Nachos are definitely a tasty choice.
Looking for a quick pick me up? Frothy Monkey is a local coffee shop that has some of the best coffee in town. Don’t worry if you get a bit hungry though. There are some great options for food too. If you are there during breakfast, try the loaded biscuits and gravy.
If you enjoy being active, try some of the many trails in Nashville.
Percy Warner Park offers some great trails to escape the bustle of the city. With over 12 miles of primitive trails, you and your pup can explore the hills and valleys of Warner Park.
With several trailheads, the Nashville Greenway offers miles of paved trails for you to navigate. Some trailheads have parks that you can enjoy as well.
