Dog Walking in McDonough

McDonough is a typical Georgian city with a small-town feel. While the city is not that far away from downtown Atlanta, the community of McDonough can be identified by its many traditions and customs such as the annual Geranium Festival in May. Gatherings like these bring local talent to the stage and makes for a tight-knit neighborhood.

According to AVMA statistics, 27.3% of the homes in Georgia own a cat. This may look like a large number, but in reality, Georgia has one of the lowest cat ownership rates in the country. The numbers point out that in Georgia people much rather have the company of a dog and there are therefore more dogs than cats in McDonough.

The Henry County Council has given the green light to the construction of an off-leash dog park to cater to all the local dog owners in the county. This off-leash playground can be found in McDonough and is large enough to provide a separate area for smaller breeds. The park is also equipped with benches, water fountains, trash cans and agility equipment.

It is a breeze to find a hotel in McDonough, Georgia, even for those that bring pets with them. As the city is very pet-friendly, almost all hotels allow pets to a certain degree in their rooms. There are also various campgrounds in the McDonough area where you can bring along your dog(s).
