Rome in New York is also known as the City of American History, thanks to the number of events and historical findings throughout history. Nowadays, Rome is a unique and wonderful town, with wonderful assets to anyone looking to work, play, or even raise a dog. Thanks to five veterinarians, lots of dog-friendly activities, and a city-wide love for dogs, Rome has become known as one of the best dog-friendly places to live.

Dog lovers in the area love to head out to the City of Rome Bark Park, which is a 7-acre area that's fenced-in for off-leash play. There are separate areas for large and small dogs, double-gated entrances, and water bowls for pups. Owners can also enjoy a clean-up station, benches, picnic tables, and lots of shade for you and your pooch to sit in.

The Rome Sand Plains Unique Area is another great place to head for dog-lovers, thanks to the dog-friendly trails and open areas at the preserve. The area is 1,786 acres featuring 4 miles of trails that wander through sand dunes and wetland areas, with fishing, hunting, and camping access. Dogs must remain on a leash at the park, and owners must bring water and clean-up bags.

Whether it's taking a hike in the wilderness or letting your pooch run around with other pups, Rome will be the best place to live for you and Fido!
