Cartersville is located in the northwest corner of Georgia, and has had some hard knocks during the Civil War. The town was finally rebuilt and reincorporated as a town in 1854, which is also when it was given the name Cartersville. The town's motto is "Be Charmed, Be Prosperous, Belong", which the city follows, by making its four-legged residents feel like they belong with eight animal clinics and multiple dog-friendly parks.

The Red Top Mountain State Park is the number one place residents take their adventurous pups, with over 1,562 acres to explore and 1 miles of shoreline along Lake Allatoona. Dogs are welcome into the park while on a leash, and can walk the trails, romp on the beach, or play in the water. Additinal features include benches and trash bins.

The Pettit Environmental Preserve is another natural wonder that welcomes humans and dogs, and offers 3 different trails that range from .25 miles to 1.7 miles. The preserve encircles a lake and provides scenic views of the water and forests. The area does requires a fee to enter, so bbe prepared. Fido must be on leash at all times in the park, and humans must bring water and clean-up bags.

The outdoor activities are endless and dogs really are made to feel like they are put fur-st in Cartersville!
