I have recently retired from full time employment. I love to walk daily and try to get 10,000 steps every day. I enjoy walking my dog Abby, and my Grand-dogs when I visit my children. Giving a dog attention, love, and exercise during a long stretch of time at home alone, is a wonderful thing!

Dog Walking in Columbus

Columbus is a small town located in the beautiful foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With the stunning mountains, hiking trails, and even the House of Flags Museum, it's no wonder you and your furry friend decided to come and visit Columbus. Home to nine veterinarians that Fido can get a health check at, you don't have to worry about anything when you're chilling in Columbus with your pup.

Take Fido out to one of the lovely parks that surround Columbus for a a lovely stroll. Stearns Park is open year round and located right in the middle of downtown Columbus. The park includes a paved walking trail that loops around the park, a playground, gazebo, and picnic tables where you and Fido can relax. The park offers grass for Fido to run around on, but there aren't many trees for shade.

While visiting Columbus, stop into Larkin's Carolina Grill. This pawsome restaurant is just the place Fido was looking for to grab a bite to eat with you. They offer burgers and steaks, and they have a beautiful outdoor patio that welcomes your furry pal to join you for a great meal. After a fun day out, check into the Pine Shadows Chalet for a good night sleep with your furry friend by your side.

The Foothills Equestrian Nature Center is a great spot to let Fido roam around and explore. The site usually houses horse and has equestrian events, but it is also filled with great trails, streams, ponds, and woods for Fido to explore. The nature center is 384-acres of hardwood forest, meadows, and wetlands, which gives your dog a quiet area to explore. The two of you can watch for birds, or stay until it is dark and watch the stars. The trail near the nature center is six miles long and features a hard-paved surface for people that are physically challenged.

The Book Shelf is four miles out of Columbus in Tryon, and the perfect spot to get a little shopping done with Fido by your side. This small independent bookstore offers books in a variety of subjects, and welcomes your pup to wander around the store with you. After a fun day out shopping, head into Huckleberry's Tryon and grab a bite to eat. Huckleberry's serves everything from lobster tolls to sloppy Joe waffles. They have a BYOB (bring your own beer) policy, and best of all, they offer a menu specially catered to your pup.

Up in the mountains of nearby Saluda is the Pulliam Creek Trail. This pawsome trail is great to go on an adventure with your pup by your side. The trail is 6.5-miles, is moderately difficult, and generally takes about three hours to complete in full, so be aware of the time if you want a shorter walk. The trail will take you by a river that Fido can splash around in, but make sure to keep him on leash when hiking. The trail is also known to be used for hunting between September and May, so throw some orange on Fido so he will be seen. Don't forget your water and clean-up bags.
