Chincoteague Island is an island and a city on the eastern shore of Virginia. Dog lovers enjoy a spectacular view of the ocean and the bay waters from anywhere in the area. You will find plenty of animal hospitals in the cities surrounding Chincoteague as you move inland. The staff at all of these facilities will treat your dog like family and make sure he is in tip-top shape. You will need to keep your dog safely on his leash while making your way around the town. It's also a good idea to have your pet micro-chipped, especially if you plan on being in the area during the warm summer months.
Both pups and people love Chincoteague Island's charming and friendly atmosphere. You will find plenty of dog-friendly parks and green spaces, as well as a handful of pupperific restaurants that will keep you both busy all weekend long. Woody's Beach Barbecue is a local favorite that welcomes four-legged patrons at the outdoor tables. You can work off that amazing meal by heading over to the Maddox Family Campgrounds. If you don't have time to camp out, you can just enjoy a long walk along the paths with Sparky until you are both ready for a dog nap.
