5 Groomers

Approximately 20 miles from Annapolis, the state capital of Maryland, lies the city of Bowie. The community of Bowie has always had a strong bond with animals. In the first half of the 20th century, Bowie was widely known for the Bowie Race Track and Belair Stable, one of the most notorious racing stables and breeders of thoroughbreds in the country.

After the large influx of people in the ‘60s, the focus shifted from horses to companion animals such as cats and dogs. The construction of the Bowie Dog Park is sure tell sign that there are a large amount of dog owners in the area. The park offers an enclosed play area which is a total of 1 acre in size and has a special area for small dogs.

Another popular area where the locals walk their dogs, or simply go for a hike, is the Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis (WB&A) Trail. This newly constructed trail is not entirely finished and currently stops at the Bowie Race Track. While the trail mostly stretches through urbanized areas, there is still a fair amount of wildlife to see. Dogs, therefore, have to be on a leash.
