Dog Walking in Blythewood

Located about twenty miles outside the capital of South Carolina, Blythewood is a prime example of a quaint southern town! The Main Street district is abuzz with little restaurants and shops, making for the perfect way to spend a morning or afternoon. A large part of Blythewood, though, consists of subdivisions and homes; the town has actually seen a population increase of over 1,000% percent since the year 2000! Many adults who work in Columbia see the growing town as the perfect place to settle down. Everyone seems to know each other, and the thirty-minute commute to the city is a breeze!

If all you’re looking for is a place to take your pup on a walk, Blythewood’s beautiful sidewalks are perfect for that! However, if you want to get out and have some fun with your pup, you may want to venture into Columbia. Blythewood has one dog-friendly restaurant, but the town has no dog parks. You can, however, take your leashed dog to any local park. Blythewood does have a few vets for you to choose from, allowing you to pick one that works best for your family, including Fido. Blythewood is a beautiful town, and if you’re willing to go for a short drive, it’s also a great town for your pup!

Groucho’s Deli is a local chain restaurant with restaurants scattered throughout South Carolina’s midlands, and if you’re looking to get your grub on, you gotta grab Groucho’s! This deli serves up mouthwatering sandwiches, salads, and sides, including potato salad. The best part about it? Your dog can dine with you! If the weather’s nice, grab a seat on the patio, where your well-behaved canine companion can join you. If he’s lucky, you might even sneak him a fry or two. Your dog will need to be on a leash at all times, and he can’t come inside with you.
