The Fort George G. Meade is located at the halfway mark between pawpular Baltimore and Washington, D.C., giving it a most convenient location for both military families and civilians. The Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard and Marines all call Fort George G. Meade and the surrounding area home, and over 115 plus organizations and government agencies work around the clock at Fort Meade including the National Security Agency. If you live inside Fort Meade, the Fort Meade Family Pet Care Center offers families boarding, grooming, care, and other doggie services.
Although Fort George G. Meade has restricted access for military members and families, it is heavily surrounded with bustling towns and cities, like Severn, where you can take your pup for a nice day out at the Severn Run Natural Environment Area. Go on a dog-friendly hike at the Severn Trail for a pawpular 1.3 mile loop trail or enjoy the area's underrated natural beauty set on over 1,600+ acres of protected land. You both can also enjoy a game of fetch on the grassy fields at the local Severn-Danza Park. Watch out for speeding motorbikes on the park's pawsome BMX tracks!
Fort George G. Meade is a home away from home for many families and furry families. Whether you're in the surrounding area for a visit or living within Fort Meade's boundaries, there are many dog-friendly places to enjoy with Fido.
Craving fresh seafood? Then leash up Fido and head a block west of Fort George G. Meade to dig into a plate of whatever seafood you like at Casey's Crab Co., located in the East Laurel neighborhood in Laurel. Grab your seat at the doggie-friendly picnic table and enjoy slurping down fresh crab with melted butter! Hungry hounds might want to order seafood by the pound (yes, that's possible)! If you're passing through for the evening, call ahead to the canine concierge at the Motel 6 Laurel for a cozy night's sleep curled up with your furry best friend. Up to three pets are allowed at no additional cost. ZzZzz...
