    #4 Cabin John Regional Park

    If you find yourself back in Maryland proper, make your way to Cabin John Dog Park, known by locals as an utter oasis for your pup. Instead of the usual gravel that covers the ground of some dog parks, the mulch here is said to be much easier on puppy’s paws. Additionally, the park is very large and your pup is sure to enjoy their share of off-leash fun. If you’re looking for something a bit more personal, leash up for you pup and take them on one of the many trails! Either way, you can’t really go wrong!

    #5 Capitol Hill

    If you’re anywhere near the area, you should always make time to stop at the Nation’s capital, specifically Capitol Hill. There, you’ll find one of the prime locations on any doggy to-do list: National Mall. Though dogs need to be leashed, you’ll have plenty of opportunities for adventure in this location. Bordered by many of the nation’s most precious monuments, you’ll be able to get a good look at everything Capitol Hill has to offer while keeping your pup along for the ride -- or, well, walkies. Small dogs will especially enjoy the trip, as you can get up close and personal with some of the monuments as long as your precious pup is cradled in your arms. So bring your tiny tot along for the time of their life!
