Charlotte is a city teeming with history, culture, and entertainment. Its many museums and theaters attract visitors every day, and its parks keep travelers of the four-legged variety amused throughout the year.

The city boasts a variety of dog parks, including one located at Frazier Park. The park itself has a multipurpose field, as well as tennis and basketball courts. If you’re on your own, stop by the community garden for some fresh air, or else bring your pup to the attached dog park for some fun socialization.

For a place that was built with both humans and dogs in mind, visit The Dog Bar. This pet-friendly bar is completely fenced in, so your dog can roam off-leash both in and outside the bar. It's easy to watch your dog while enjoying a drink and chatting with other animal lovers at the counter.

The 700 acres of the U.S. National Whitewater Center offers more than enough room for you and your dog to roam, as well as different trails to explore. Whether you’d like to be getting active outdoors or taking it easy on a restaurant’s patio, you and your pet are sure to find something that suits both of you in Charlotte.

"Thomas is hands down one of the best walkers I've had! He has taken my pups on multiple walks and is always great about spending some extra attention on my recent rescue who is still learning his leash manners. He leaves very detailed report cards which I absolutely love to read. As an overprotective dog-mom I'm always a little nervous when someone else is walking my puppies but I definitely trust them in Thomas's hands!"
