Dog Walking in Rockport

This place rocks. Because it is Rockport! Located close to the shore, the city of Rockport is a number one touristic destination for marine adventurers. Boating, fishing, and swimming are the main activities, paired with a number of historic districts and museums. Rockport is extremely dog-friendly with shops, eateries, parks, and hotels welcoming every canine friend. Travelling with Fido is always a challenge, but you'll have nothing to worry about here. There are three veterinary clinics in the area that can help you out with any problem your mutt have.

Who doesn't love the beach? That's right: nobody. Especially if it is Rockport's beach, which has an extensive dog-friendly area. The public beach welcomes families with kids and dogs alike next to the pier and aquarium side. Let your mutt chase after a Frisbee or dive to rescue a toy from the water!

If this marine atmosphere made you curious about the underwater world, take a tour of the Aquarium at Rockport Harbor. This is a fun and entertaining facility where you can learn about the marine life in the local area. Leashed and well-behaved pooches can join their masters for a tour of a marine adventure for free!

If your pup has fallen in love with Rockport, stay for a weekend at one of six seaside hotels with dog-friendly policies, comfortable rooms, and soothing views of the waterline.
