Carey is a quaint village in central northern Ohio. The town was established in 1843, and was named for the prominent judge and congressman John Carey. With a low population, the village only takes up 2 square miles, which is mostly made up of residential buildings and open land. With all that area available, you'll be sure to find some favorite dog walking spots around town.
One of those favorite spots is waiting at Shrine Park. Taking up about 10 acres of land, the park dedicates its efforts to maintaining the paved walkways and lawns found throughout. Dogs are welcome at the park while on a leash, and can take a stroll along the paths, play in the open fields, or relax on one of the many benches found in this pawsome green space.
If all that play works up an appetite, you'll appreciate the Smokin' Buckeye BBQ Restaurant. With its dog-friendly, outdoor seating, friendly staff have been known to serve complimentary water and treats to good pups, and some knockout BBQ dishes, it'll be sure to become a favorite.
This small town doesn't offer any vets within its borders, but traveling south to the town of Sandusky will give any dogs the choice of four different vets.
In the center of the city, you'll find the lovely Memorial Park, a dog-friendly place for you and Fido. Dogs are welcome on-leash anywhere around the park. Here, you and your pup can play in some of the free areas, explore the recreational baseball and football fields, walk along the paved paths, or sit on a bench in the shade of an oak tree and watch a game. For a unique adventure, head north towards the Indian Trail Caverns, a cave formation site that's open to the public and dogs. Dogs are welcome to accompany you on the tour to explore the outside of the place, but dogs cannot enter the cave.
