Southbury is a small town in western Connecticut that is made up of areas of old farmland, gardens, and suburban communities. Unique to the rest of the cities in the country, Southbury is the only city with that name. Not only for that reason is it unique, but visitors and resident dog-lovers will fall in love with the city thanks to the dog-friendly shops and parks around town.

The Southbury Dog Park is one of a kind, providing a large area filled with grassy terrain, open areas, and an open stream for pups to play in. The whole area is not completely fenced-in, but allows dogs to run around safely off-leash, with an enclosed small-dog area, forested trail, benches, trash bins, dog-sized water fountains, and clean-up stations.

The Kettletown State Park is one of the best outdoor experiences in Southbury, where you and your pup can enjoy 605 acres of lush woods, nature trails, paved paths, camping, and waterholes along the Housatonic River. Dogs are welcome on the trails while they remain on a leash, with access to water fountains, trash bins, and benches in the recreational areas.

Southbury is also home to three veterinarians, many nature walks, and a dog-friendly atmosphere that will leave you and Fido ecstatic.
