Dog Walking in Canton

Dogs have been a big part of Canton, Texas since its incorporation in 1919. The town is known for its First Monday Trade Days, a monthly flea market in Canton, which would bring visitors from all around the area to swap cars, machinery cattle, and even dogs! Although dog-trading is not allowed anymore, dogs are welcome at the market, along with anywhere else outside in the town. Canton only has 1 animal hospital, but plenty more dog-friendly parks and trails around the city.

Duke's Travel Plaza Dog Park is a unique place to bring your pup, with a travel center for shopping, gas pumps, and a fenced-in area to let your dog run around and stretch his legs. The park is open to anyone who stops by and has a water spigot with bowls, a double-gated fence, grassy terrain, clean-up stations, and benches.

Cherry Creek Park is another great place to head out to for a day out with Fido, offering a large, mostly undeveloped area for hiking and play options. There's one open area, surrounded by forests and nature trails that wind around 1.5 miles. Dogs are welcome at the park while on a leash, and have access to clean-up bags, water fountains, benches, and trash bins.

Canton residents will enjoy the urban and natural areas all around town that are not only open year round, but always dog-friendly.
