“It's always a nice day for a walk !”

Hello, I'm Tuan. I recently retired from a long career as a software engineer in RTP. Now, my daily exercise is to walk and explore the various neighborhoods in the triangle. I'd love to have your dog as my companion. The walk will do both of us good. I grew up with dogs and cats always underfoot. Unfortunately, my kids have pet dander allergies so no pets in the house for the long term. My wife and I handle our addiction by doing fostering weekends for one of the local shelters.

After unpacking and settling down in your hotel room, be sure to visit pet-friendly restaurant Parker and Otis for a delicious, freshly prepared meal made with local ingredients. When it comes time for a walk, venture no further than Northgate Dog Park. This celebrated fenced, off-leash dog park includes a separate small dog area, benches, and water spigots for your furry friend. Whatever it is that brings you to Durham, you'll be sure to have a great time with your favorite companion.
