Whether it's a walk around the neighborhood or taking a trip to the dog park, I'm always looking forward to my walks. I have experience with walking 50 different breeds of all sizes, and it's a pleasure meeting new pups. The more the merrier. The time I get to spend with a dog, young or not so young, small or not so small, makes the day that much better.

Dog Walking in Fort Belvoir

Fort Belvoir is a community associated with the Fort Belvoir United States Army installation, and it supports the employees and families of the many government agencies that are housed on the property. Fort Belvoir and its surrounding communities are also home to natural resources that attract outdoors-minded folks and their pups. Should your pet become ill while in the area, rest assured that Fort Belvoir has 1 veterinary clinic, and there are at least 3 others in nearby Alexandria, all ready to help.

The dog-friendly Accotink Bay Wildlife Refuge provides a habitat for wildlife of all kinds, including deer, smaller mammals like fox and raccoons, snakes, turtles and other amphibians. The protected wetlands and wildlife habitats connect with Accotink Bay to the west, which empties into the Potomac. This 1200-acre refuge is a smorgasbord of sights and smells for your fur-pup as you walk the more than 8 miles over 14 hiking trails. Most are unpaved and natural, but there is a short, paved trail that is wheelchair accessible. An observation station at one end of the Great Blue Heron Trail provides pawsome sightings of waterfowl and other water-loving wildlife, and you will find free parking and a restroom at the Tulley Gate entrance to the refuge. Woofderful!

Whether you’re visiting the Fort Belvoir area or are a resident here, you’re sure to find lots to do outdoors with your fur-baby!
