Dog Walking in Charenton

Charenton is a small community in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana. It surrounds the Chitimacha Reservation and is just minutes from the Bayou Teche. The bayous are great for dogs who love to go out on boats with their humans! Just make sure you have a harness on your dog and she is comfortable listening for your voice while out on the water. 

Herbert Washington Park is on the northern side of Charenton. It is a pupperific place to take your dog for a walk after a long day away from him at work (or whatever it is that humans do all day!). It is a small park but not bad for a short walk or a weekend picnic with your dog and even some friends! 

The nearest animal hospitals are just fifteen minutes away in nearby Franklin. The staff at all of these locations are compassionate and welcoming, whether you are stopping in for a quick exam or need some specialized care to keep your pup happy and healthy for years to come. Keep a leash on your dog while walking through this small town. There may be plenty of room to roam, but roaming with you is always the safest option!
