I am currently in college and have time between class and think would be a fun way to spend it! I would love to be able to get a dog myself but know it’s not the right time. I grew up with a family dog and have had experience dog sitting. I’ve volunteered at a vet hospital and have experience with administering medicine.

Dog Walking in Ashland

Although Ashland may be a city, its small-town vibe and beautiful scenery has long since attracted nature-loving people, as well as their four-legged companions. With so many parks, nature reserves, three veterinarian clinics, and several other dog-friendly businesses, no dog ever leaves Ashland feeling disappointed!

You are never too far away from a park in Ashland, and one of the larger ones in the city is Brookside Park. This park is actually split into two, with the main Brookside Park featuring sporting facilities, seasonal concession stands, and picnic pavilions. A short walk away is Brookside West Park, and this is the part that your pup will likely enjoy more, thanks to its pawtastic hiking trail and fishing pond.

Parks are always fun, but many dogs also enjoy taking the time to relax with their owners at a restaurant, and there are definitely plenty to choose from in Ashland. Buffalo Wild Wings is a fun, sports-focused restaurant with dog-friendly outdoor tables, serving up burgers, salads and sandwiches along with their specialty wings. If your pup would like more of a view, head to Bella Bleu's restaurant, which is situated at Water's Edge and serves fresh, gourmet dishes.

Set in such a picturesque part of Ohio, Ashland's natural beauty, coupled with its dog-friendly activities, make it the perfect city for dog owners.

The England neighborhood boasts plenty of greenery, as well as two of Ashland's finest parks. The Davis Road Park is perfect for a leisurely, on-lead dog walk, with sports facilities, picnic areas, and a hiking trail that your pooch will love. If you would like to take your pup somewhere a little more stimulating, the Audubon Wetlands Preserve is also in this neighborhood. This huge park stretches out for 215 acres, and features several hiking trails. Since there are state-threatened plants and animals living at this park, Fido will need to be kept on a lead, but with so much diversity in the scenery all around, he won't mind!

This Ashland neighborhood is home to quite a few shops, meaning that your pup will always find people to say hello to when taking a stroll along the streets. After doing some window-shopping, head on over to the Cahn Grove Park, which is a city park complete with a basketball court, tennis courts and ball diamonds. The park is filled with a variety of trees and plants, so do not expect that tail to stop wagging! With so much going on here, the park's picnic areas are the perfect place to relax and enjoy your surroundings, with picnic tables and charcoal grills available for public use. Just don't forget to bring along some water, as well as something to grill, for Fido too!

Being home to Ashland University, the Claremont Avenue neighborhood is quite a busy part of town, but there are a few green areas where you and your pup can get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a while. One of these is Freer Field, the most popular of Ashland's parks. The park extends out for 78 acres, 30 of which is a mixture of pine forest and mixed woodlands, while the rest consists of grassy meadows. There are two miles of hiking trails to explore here, but make sure that you keep Fido on a lead, and bring along some water and doggie bags too.

Although not technically in Ashland's city boundaries, Bailey Lakes is just a ten minute drive from the city center, and is where you will find Ohio's first dog park. The privately-owned Peppy Paws Pooch Park actually consists of two designated off-lead dog parks, both of which are fenced in. The first is a large, five acre park, which has a nature trail winding its way around the back, while the second is a smaller, one acre park. You will need to purchase either a day pass or an annual pass to use this park, and make sure that your pup is over four months old, as well as up-to-date on all vaccinations.

The Miller Street neighborhood is a popular one, and a good area to visit if you would like to treat your pup to a meal out. Belly Busters BBQ has four dog-friendly tables, at which you and your pooch can enjoy some of their signature barbecued meat and fish. Just nearby is Ashland-Wooster, and although this is a drive-in, they do have two pet-friendly picnic tables outside. You and your dog can try everything from hot dogs with a home made coney sauce to hand-dipped floats. To walk off all of that food, take your pooch for a stroll along Center Street, which is a historic part of town with some exquisite architecture.
