Willoughby Hills in Lake County, Ohio, sits amongst some of the most beautiful forest areas you will find in this part of the States. With so many dog-friendly options, you will certainly have a full itinerary when visiting Willoughby Hills! There are a vet clinic and animal hospital in town, so help is not far away should Fido unexpectedly fall ill on your trip.

For your first outing, head to the North Chagrin Reservation and check out Squires Castle. This spectacular 19-century building was originally erected as the gatehouse of the country estate, but was never finished, and now serves as the park’s key attraction. There are many trails around the castle to walk your pup, so take some time and go exploring! Many of the trails are looped, but it is worth seeking a map before you head out. After your walk, head to the Strawberry Picnic Area where you will find grills, shelters and restrooms. Pets are welcome at the North Chagrin Reservation, but keep your dog leashed and remove any waste he leaves to help keep the place clean.

For a nice little local park, head to Campbell Park located behind City Hall. Your pup will love taking a walk with you around the grounds, or hanging out while you and the family cook up your lunch on the grills. If you have kids with you, they will enjoy the playground, tennis courts and basketball court too.

    Pleasant Valley Park in Willoughby Hills covers 124 acres of publicly accessible land, perfect for a day out walking and spending some time in nature with your pup. Pleasant Valley was formerly a commercial nursery, and is now a popular place for walking and fishing in the Chagrin River. Cottonwood trees and sycamores provide a wonderful leafy canopy as you explore the woodland and riverbank that reaches 80 foot high in some parts. There aren’t any amenities here except a port-a-potty, so bring water for you and your pooch as well as any food you might like. It is wise to pack a towel for the trip back in case your pup decides to take a closer look at the river too!
