Hi! My name is Brianne. I have always had family dogs growing up and they were always treated as “our babies”. For the past four years I have been working in the doggy daycare field and volunteering at a local dog rescue. I am confident with all different sizes and personality types of dogs, and treat every one of them as if they were my own.

Dog Walking in Phenix City

Phenix City, Alabama has several pet-friendly attractions, starting with the community’s parks. Dogs are allowed on-leash in these areas, as long as they are well behaved and cleaned up after. The popular Austin Sumbry Park has multiple amenities, from basketball courts to a scenic small pond. There is enough space to play fetch and run around the park, or enjoy a family picnic. 

Nearby Idle Hour Park has a beautiful nature trail and children’s learning trail, so it’s perfect for dogs and small children. A popular fishing spot, Moon Lake is located within this park. You’ll see wildlife from rabbits and deer, to fish and birds enjoying this beautiful natural area.  Meadowlane Park also has a jogging path, as well as shade pavilions and restrooms.

A popular Georgia trail, the Chattahoochee Riverwalk also meanders into Alabama. This 22-mile trail features landscapes and environments that reflect the changing history of the area, from steamboats carrying cotton and traveling to Columbus, and the abandoned railroad tracks that once created the economy around Phenix City. Dogs are allowed on-leash. If you need more to explore, try the extension of the Chattahoochee Valley Railroad Trail, which covers another 7 miles into Alabama. The trail begins in Shawmut and goes towards Riverview.

Lakewood Park is the perfect slice of southern pie. Tall pines and oaks create plenty of shade and stand guard of the property featuring lakes, gazebos, park benches, and open spaces. Dogs on leashes are welcome. This is the perfect place to teach your dog how to fish, as the lakes are open to licensed fisherman. Despite not having thumbs, most dogs are highly interested in this activity. Watch their eyes light up and mouths water as you reel in a fish and take it off the hook. Just be sure not to let them get their paws on it for the sake of the fish and your dog. Lakewood Park also features winding paved trails, connecting all of the day’s activities. Check out the baseball fields, playgrounds, and public access grills, for an all-American Saturday

Southside Park is truly a beautiful example of what a great park should be. The grounds are amazingly well-maintained, and the grass is a shade of vibrant green only seen in storybooks. Everyone can find something to do here. While you and your dog are exploring the nature parks and sniffing the natural stream that runs through the property, let the kids swing at the playground and cool off at the splash pad. Friends can enjoy a pickup game on the basketball courts. If that's not their style, there are tennis courts and a swimming pool. Take your pick! Then, gather up around a grill for some lunch and relax under the pavilion. The park is open 10am to 8pm. Dogs must be well-behaved, leashed, and cleaned up after.

Humans aren't only animals to have a love affair with the delicious dairy treat we call ice cream. Dogs love it too, and they don't care what it's called. In fact, you could tell them it's 'cold, white fat and sugar', and they'd go crazy for it! Bruster's Real Ice Cream understands the affliction, and wants to help you help your dog quench the need for cream. At the Lee County Rd location, dogs get a free 1 oz doggie sundae when they visit with a parent. Isn't that sweet?
