Dog Walking in Gloucester

Tucked between the York River in the west and the Chesapeake Bay in the east is the rich farming county of Gloucester, Virginia. Named after Henry Stuart, the Duke of Gloucester in the late 1600s, this town has been a site of historical importance ever since. The county is split into two areas. The central part, where the courthouse sits, rests above Gloucester Point — an affluent community crested against the York River. Gloucester was initially inhabited by indigenous hunters and gatherers. The tale of John Smith's contact with Chief Powhatan of the Werewocomoco Tribe also took place within Gloucester and is regarded as the lost site of this Native American tribe. Living in this place really captures the arcane mystery of the country's past. Good thing Fido has the sniffer for detective work!

Dog owners across the county love living here. There are 5 veterinarians, 6 pet groomers, and 4 pet shops here! You and your doggo will never have to drive far to get anything Fido needs! Dogs also love visiting any one of Gloucester's 10 parks, like Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park in the Hayes neighborhood, or Beaverdam Park toward Ashdon Woods. If you're looking for a bite to eat, there are 5 restaurants throughout the county that are dog-friendly, within even more across the Coleman Memorial Bridge leading into Yorktown. 

Grab your dog and his leash and get outside into the beautiful places of Gloucester!

Does your dog like to play sailor and head out on the water? If you live in the northern Ashdan Woods neighborhood, you can visit the Beaverdam Park. Some call it the Beaverdam Swamp, but either way, it's a freshwater paradise for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, boating, and more. The 635-acre park welcomes dogs that are on their leash and also asks that you bring the pooper scooper! After a day out on the water, you can satisfy your hankering for sugar at Sweet Tooth Bakery & Woods, which is a pet-friendly bakery that serves up cake in various arrangements. They also have cupcakes that'll have your pooch howling! Don't give Fido too much! It might give him a stomach ache!

Does your dog like frozen yogurt? Living in the central part of the county in the Dunston Hall neighborhood puts you within close walking distance to Sweetfrog Frozen Yogurt. This is a hot-spot for doggos, especially during the hot summer months when there are tons of dogs hanging out while their owners grab some gelato. You can enjoy something sweet while Fido gets to sniff out his furry friends! Sweetfrog serves four different categories of frozen yogurt ranging from nonfat to no sugar added, with a few dozen options in flavors and toppings. Bring some treats so Fido doesn't get too jealous!

Does your dog love the morning because that means bacon and morning walks? If you live in the Hayes community, you can start off your morning at Sunrise Donuts & Sweets, a pet-friendly local joint that welcomes the doggos. This place makes yeast-raised donuts, cake donuts, filled donuts, and other sweet pastries like apple fritters. If you're craving something savory, you can also get a Sunrise Sandwich, like a Turkey Turkey, Mr. Beefy, or a Porky. There are also lunch options if you and Fido are late risers. After eating, you can head down to Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park for a camping trip or to let Fido hang out with his furry brethren. The park pays actors to dress up as Yogi Bear and his friends! Too fun!

Does your dog like exploring huge state parks that hug the banks of a river? You'll get exactly this opportunity in the New Landing neighborhood, which is less than an hour drive across the York River. The York River State Park is 2,531 acres. The park has a complex trail guide with both challenging and easy routes to pick from. Many of the trails are named after the Native American tribes that once traversed the same lands. York River also plays host to fossil beds and Indian mounds and is very rich in eco-diversity. Dogs are welcome to explore and camp as long as they're on a leash. Fido will love it here!

Does your dog consider himself a bourgeoisie member of high society? He'll love accompanying you to the idyllic but upscale restaurants that sit across the water from Gloucester Point! The point itself is a great place for a stroll, with views of the Chesapeake Bay curtsying the horizon. A drive across the Coleman Memorial Bridge will land you in Yorktown, where you can eat at a variety of dog-friendly restaurants, like the Waterstreet Grill or Riverwalk Restaurant. Whether you're getting steak, seafood, or a salad, this place is sure to impress even the snootiest of pups!
