Dog Walking in Portsmouth

Portsmouth is a town in Newport County. It sits on the northern end of Aquidneck Island and includes a few nearby islands. Originally settled in 1638 by dissenters from the nearby Massachusetts Bay Colony, it is now a beautiful seaside community. And with three pawsome veterinary clinics, this town definitely has canine health as a top priority.   

Portsmouth has some great parks, large and small. Take your pup to Founder’s Brook Park for a little history lesson. She can learn about Anne Hutchinson and Mary Dyre, some of the founding members of Portsmouth.  Wander around the glen and check out the memorial benches. There is also a waterfall and an herb garden. 

Bristol Ferry Town Common is another great spot for some history. This small park is where farmers used to wait with their livestock for the ferry to Bristol. Your pooch will love the great view of Mount Hope Bay.

Treat your furry BFF to a night on the town and head over to the Portsmouth Publick House. Menu items are all made from scratch, and there are nine outdoor tables that welcome four legged diners. This place also features live music by local musicians. Be sure to also check out the other pet friendly restaurants in town.

Hop on the ferry and take your pooch over to Prudence Island. Located just 3.5 miles west of Portsmouth, this stunning island provides hours of hiking and exploring. Spend some time in Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. As you wander around the trails, you’ll discover several types of coastal habitats including forests, sandy beaches, rocky shores, salt marshes, and grasslands. Your pal will love getting her exercise in such an amazing place. Various other trails lead to historic points of interest, like Baker Farm and Prudence Island Schoolhouse. Before leaving, be sure to stop by the Sand Point Lighthouse and take a photo with your pup.

The Sakonnet Greenway Trail provides some great mileage for your pooch to stretch his four legs. At 10 miles, this trail is the longest contiguous nature trail on Aquidneck Island. Not only will your pup get some much needed exercise, he’ll also get to enjoy some beautiful scenery. The Portsmouth section of the trail passes near cornfields, around a black gum swamp, and over wetlands. If your pup is still energetic, follow the trail down to Middletown or Newport. Dogs must be on leash while using the trail. Be sure to bring enough water, as all that walking will make your pal thirsty!

Is your pup bursting with energy? Then it’s time for a trip to the Portsmouth Dog Park. Your pal will have an absolute blast as he romps around with new four legged playmates. He can run free and chase his buddies, or just sniff around on his own. If he’s on the athletic side, he can give the agility equipment a try. Small pups have their own area, so petit pooches can play at their own speed. The park has benches for pet parents, and fresh water is available for two legged and four legged guests. This park will make your dog’s tail wag!

If your pup loves breathtaking views of the ocean, then make your way over to Brenton Point State Park. It’s located on the southern tip of Aquidneck Island in Newport. Pack a lunch, water, and some snacks for your dog and stay the afternoon. Walk your pup around the mile long ocean front path and soak in the views of the Atlantic. You can also check out the ruins of an old estate that once sat on the property or roam around the large open fields. This area is a kite flying haven, so bring your own or purchase one at the park. Sounds furrific!
