Spending time with doggies is one of my very favorite things to do. I love the fun and simplicity of a stroll with a dog, and getting to know each dog’s distinct vibe. Dogs always bring a smile to my face and as corny as it may sound, I want to show them how much I appreciate them!!

Dog Walking in Southport

Southport, North Carolina is a city that has been around since the 1500s. It originated as a fortification, established to protect its citizens during King George's War. Because it sits right at the mouth of the river and the Atlantic Sea, it was a great spot for trade as the city grew. Modern-day Southport has been featured in many films because of its natural beauty.

While you are visiting, you have three different touring options. You can book with a tour guide and walk the city to learn its history. Most guides will let well-behaved dogs join the tour as long as they are on their leash. This pet-friendly city is full of outdoor activities that your pet will enjoy. A quick call to any of the three vets in the city will let you know what seasonal events will allow your pet to join in the fun. 

You could head over the Bald Head Island and walk the grounds of Baldy Lighthouse. This is a six-mile island that showcases its history through informational plaques. You and your pup can take a self-guided tour of the island or, if you choose, just walk the perimeter taking in the view of the city in the distance. The lighthouse is open to visitors, but only the two-legged kind, unfortunately.
