Welcome to the coastal town of Wells, Maine. You might think the city is named Wells because of all the water, but its actually named after "Father of Wells", a man who used a lot of well water in his mills. Because of this, the name was born, and 400 years later, the city is still booming and attracting people and their furry best friends. Today, Wells is a summertime destination for a lot of vacationers who fill the beaches and downtown area every year. Resident and visiting pups have ther choice of five veterinary clinics, with many more available in the surrounding areas.

Well's Beach can get pretty hectic during the summertime, but Wells still tries to include its four-legged residents! Dogs are allowed anytime in the off-season, but are only allowed on the beach between 6 and 8 PM between June 16th and September 15th. There are clean-up stations, trash bins, and benches located throughout the beach.

Wells Harbor Park is another popular destination for dog lovers, located right on the water and surrounded by marshland. Dogs must remain on a leash, but can enjoy the comforts of a water fountain, benches, the shade under the gazebo, and some paved walking paths.

There are plenty of other outdoor places to go, like the Wells Barren Preserve and Gregoire Campgrounds for camping adventures. With all these options and more, it will leave you and Fido going mutts for more!
