The trails around Doctor Bower’s Lake are a particularly pretty place for you two to stretch all six of your legs! You’ll also find some fantastically fur-friendly hiking options in the area, and if your furry friend needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find plenty of off-leash exercise options a little fur-ther afield!
You’d need to be barking mad not to take your best buddy to the Montgomery County Bark Park! The size alone makes this park well worth the eight-mile trip from Englewood -- there’s a a whole six acres of space for your pooch to leap about and tire themselves out in. There’s also some well-maintained doggy agility equipment, so fitter furry friends are guaranteed a thorough and entertaining workout! There’s plenty of shade, seating for tired owners, and waste bags for your convenience. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that the water is shut off in winter -- you might need to bring your own bottle!
