Kettering is the largest suburb of the city of Dayton in Ohio. The metropolitan area was once home to the inventor Charles F. Kettering, whom the city got its name, and who invented the world's first aerial missile. Nowadays the area hasn't had many inventions, but has made over 284 outdoor acres for humans and pups living in the city to enjoy. And with eight veterinarians, you can feel safe exploring all of them with your pup.

The most popular place for humans and their pups is the Hills & Dales MetroPark, a 63-acre area filled with rolling hills, open space, dense forests, and scenic creeks. The natural areas are dog-friendly to leashed pups with over 5 miles of paved and dirt trails, a pond for fishing and swimming, picnic shelters and pavilion, and lots of space to run around and play. Additional features include clean-up stations, water fountains, benches, and nighttime lights.

Indian Riffle Park is another spot perfect for a pleasant walk with Fido. The area includes over 2.5 miles of paved trail that roam through the open spaces and thick forests throughout the park. Dogs must remain on a leash, but can also go into the picnic, barbeque and pavilion areas with access to water fountains, clean-up stations, and benches.

The bustling suburb of Kettering is always expanding its parks to include more dog-friendly and human-friendly activities for all its residents.

Fido can get plenty of exercise here with a good walk, or just roam in the baseball fields. There's also access to water fountains and benches. Ernst Park is right across the street and has the same amenities as Irelan Park, with additional tennis courts, gazebo, clean-up stations, and soccer fields that are public to leashed pups.
