Situated in the heart of scenic Virginia Wine Country and less than half an hour from Charlottesville, Barboursville, VA has a long and storied history. The town is older than the United States itself, and the old Barboursville mansion (home of James Barbour, 19th governor of Virginia and the town’s namesake) is the only building in Orange County to be designed by founding father and third US president Thomas Jefferson. The entire town is on the National Register of Historic Places, but hound-dog history buffs might also be interested in a leashed walk around a portion of the wider Madison-Barbour Rural District, an area that stretches between Barboursville and nearby Montpelier and incorporates many Federal and Georgian style homes, as well as some agricultural buildings and churches.

There’s no designated dog park in Barboursville, but you and your pooch are still sure to sniff out something to do! Barboursville Community Park is a lovely little spot for a leashed walk, and many local wineries allow pups at their tastings. You’re also close by to some furrifically Fido-friendly hiking options. In terms of pet care, there’s one veterinary clinic in Barboursville, and emergency services are available right in town. And if your furry friend needs to run free, don’t fret -- you’ll find plenty of op-paw-tunities for off-leash adventure in the surrounding area!

    #1 Winery Rd

    Since Barboursville is right in the middle of Virginia’s Piedmont wine region, it’d be a huge faux paw not to go for a tasting! Luckily, Barboursville Vineyards welcomes wagging tails with open arms. Located on the aptly named Winery Road right on the edge of town, the dog-loving owners of this winery allow leashed doggos both on their outdoor patio and in their main tasting room (though the library tasting room remains off-limits). Be sure to try the Octagon Red! As an added bonus, the vineyard is actually located on the ruins of Barboursville Mansion, so you two can take a tour while you’re there!

    #2 Lake Acres

    You’d need to be barking mad not to bring your buddy to the dog park at Chris Greene Lake Park in Charlottesville! Tucked away in the city’s quiet and residential Lake Shores neighborhood, just a twenty-minute drive from Barboursville, this park truly is a pup’s paradise. Not only is there plenty of room for your pup to run around and tire themselves out, but the dog run also has lake access, and water-loving pooches are sure to have a whale of a time swimming or just splashing about. There’s also a short, wooded trail leading up to the off-leash area, ideal for a warm-up or cool-down. Bags and water are provided, but keep in mind that there’s no separate small dog area, so be mindful of your fur-baby’s temperament.

    #3 Constitution Hwy

    James Madison’s Montpelier is a real mutts-visit! The historic home of the former president and architect of the US constitution is situated in the unincorporated community of Montpelier Station, seven miles away from Barboursville. Your pooch won’t be able to enter the house or museum itself, of course, but don’t worry -- not only can you two appreciate the estate from outside, but the grounds also have plenty of trails for you and your four-legged pal to sniff and explore! There’s a whole eight miles of well-marked paths for you and your buddy to investigate, running through wooded wonderland, bucolic pastoral landscapes, and wildflower meadows. Don’t forget to bring waste bags and water!

    #4 Downtown Gordonsville

    Looking for somewhere to chow down with your pup? Look no fur-ther than Downtown Gordonsville! If you fancy something you can really get your teeth into, consider stopping in at The Barbeque Exchange. This locally joint does a grrreat hickory smoked pork shoulder, and they cater to canines outside. Mexican more your bag? Check out Burrito Baby, a true Gordonsville gem that makes a mean, fresh pico de gallo and allows doggos and their well-behaved owners at their outdoor tables. Or for a sweet treat, head out to Tastee Freez for a creamy frozen custard. They have a drive-in window, so there’s no need to tie up your pooch while you order!

    #5 Woolen Mills

    Make no bones about it, Riverview Park is certainly a pretty place for you and your pooch to stretch all six of your legs! The Rivanna Trail system in this pawesome park has designated off-leash days -- free roaming fur-balls are allowed on the route on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Not only that, but the two-mile path is both paved and flat, making this an accessible day out for pooches of all ages and abilities, from the most athletic animals to older furry friends that can’t quite move like they used to. The trail is tree-shaded and offers fantastic waterside views, and it’s a favorite of local doggos and their owners, so your pup might even make some new friends!
