Families with two legs and four have found a great, pet-friendly place to live in the town of Sellersburg, Indiana. The town was founded back in 1890 by a man named Moses Sellers — hence the name. Citizens of Sellersburg refer to the town as simply the "Burg." There is an amicable resonance in the air in Sellersburg. The community gets together for various outdoor events like the Farmers Market, craft festivals, and The Sellersburg Street Dance, which offers live music and food booths. The "Burg" even puts on parades to celebrate the different seasons. You can take your dog with you to all these festive events which take place year-round.
Dog owners love living in this remarkably friendly locale. Sellersburg plays a great host with 3 veterinarians, 3 parks, and a handful of pet-friendly restaurants with outdoor seating areas. You and your pooch will have a hard time deciding where to go first in this dog-friendly town! If you're looking to get outside with your dog, any of Sellersburg's 3 parks are beautiful places to enjoy a stroll. The town even has a poem commemorating the pride and joy felt by those that live here. Grab the leash and head to the "Burg!"
Does your dog love the Halloween season and enjoy spooky strolls through the woods? In the Sellersburg neighborhood, you can visit the Haunted Woods, which is an outdoor haunted house set up in Pepper Upper Club park. The installation spans 30 acres and is a spooky way to enjoy a walk with your dog. After a fright, you can cool off with Fido at Chillers Microcreamery. Chillers offer sundaes, cones, and hot dogs for you and your pup to enjoy. The ice cream parlor has been serving the community — including the dogs — for over 10 years! Great place for a sweet treat!
Does your dog like arts and crafts? If your pup is a natural "Salvador Dog-li", then he'll love visiting Speed Park, pawticularly in August. This furrific park in the Memphis neighborhood hosts an annual event that lets you and your pooch get in touch with your creative side! You can also enjoy some snacks and adult beverages from the booths set up while jamming out to some live music. Even when the festival isn't happening, Speed Park is still a great place to enjoy a leashed walk with your best furry friend. Just make sure to bring waste bags with you to keep the park clean.
Does your dog love tagging along with you everywhere you go? If you live in the Allentown neighborhood, you and your dog can visit the dog-friendly restaurant The Fireside Bar & Grill. This local joint offers all the classic diner options like meatloaf, country fried steak, and veggie plates. There are also seafood and vegetarian options, so no matter what you're in the mood for, you and Fido can find it at The Fireside. The restaurant has an outdoor patio area which is typically frequented by other neighborhood doggos. Tails are always wagging at The Fireside! Maybe, if your dog's lucky, you'll give him a bite of your meatloaf.
Does your dog crave going to the park so he can play in the grass? Living in the Research Park neighborhood gives you quick access to the Silver Creek Township Park. If you visit during the day, you'll most likely see tons of your neighbors' dogs also at the park enjoying the day. There's a mile-long track to walk around, as well as basketball courts, baseball fields, and plenty of sports fields where you can have a picnic or play a game of fetch. The park is kept nice and tidy year-round, so Fido will love playing here! Just remember to bring your waste bags.
Does your dog like to walk by running water so he can splash around in the shallows? If you live in the southern part of town, in The Meadows neighborhood, you can walk by Silver Creek. As you walk among the cedars and white pines, you might have the opportunity to see a beaver making a dam in the creek! You and Fido might even be lucky enough to see a cotton-tail rabbit or a red fox. You will need to keep Fido on a leash as you enjoy the natural land around Silver Creek. It's a "fetching" good time!
