“I hope your pup and I can become friends!”
Hey, I'm Nate! I love dogs, I've had dogs ever since I was a born, and I love spending time with them. I've spent a lot of time volunteering for local animal shelters, including a special needs dog shelter, to walk and spend time with the dogs there. After two years with Wag, I’m proud to say I get to hang out with dogs for a living!

Sutherlin, Virginia is a quaint little city in Halifax County where you can go to have access to all of the natural beauty Southern Virginia has to offer with the small-town atmosphere that makes you and Fido feel at home. With a population density of 74 people per square mile, you can enjoy the miles of dog-friendly (leashed in most areas) hiking trails surrounding the city or hit the famous Virginia International Raceway, where you can camp at one of their campgrounds with your pets as long as they are leashed and cleaned up after.
Visitors to Sutherlin who need a pet-friendly hotel can find plenty within a 15-mile radius in places like Danville and Alton, where there are plenty of vet clinics for your and Fido's peace of mind.
You won't find too many pet-friendly restaurants in Sutherlin, but that is not a problem because everything you need is just a short drive away! Besides, you know Fido loves those picnics on the Richmond and Danville Rail-Trail going through Sutherlin, where he can run and play in the woods and then curl up on a blanket under the trees with his favorite human.
Surrounded by places your pet is sure to go dog-wild over, Sutherlin is the perfect relaxing atmosphere to get away for a while.
Right around the corner from Sutherlin, you can find Danville, home of Coates Bark Park where your pups can play unrestricted by the tether of a leash. This park is one of the few dog parks where large and small breed dogs can play separately, and pet-friendly amenities like doggie water fountains, fixed water bowls, and covered shelters are provided to make this park a doggie heaven. A visitor pass to Coates is only $5 for 48-hour access. Please note that male dogs over one year old must be neutered and proof of vaccination for rabies and Bordetella must be provided.
Looking for a break from the peace and quiet? Alton, Virginia is a quick 23 miles up the US 360 from Sutherlin. Here, you will find the Virginia International Raceway just a few miles from the border of North Carolina. Nearby, you can visit the Wreck of the Old 97 Historical Site, where, in 1808, the famous railroad wreck of the southbound mail express train plunged into the ravine -- combining your pup's favorite things: nature and the postal service! Angler's Park is a quick jaunt away for walking trails and picnics, as well as boating.
Considered one of the most charming small towns in Virginia, Chatham is a little two square mile village that is home to Heritage Hill Country Market, a farmer's market with friendly people and fresh bread, meat, and cheese, as well as handmade gifts and other goods. It is a little hidden stop as you go through Virginia to bigger tourist attractions, but you are bound to find something to treat Fido to in this quaint little place! Pets are allowed in some areas, but be sure you bring a leash. You'll want to let Fido take you for a walk through the old farm town after you finish shopping!
The River District in Danville is your best bet for pet-friendly hotels like the Courtyard by Marriott, Comfort Inn & Suites, or the Berry Hill Resort & Conference Center. The Golden Leaf Bistro restaurant is a highly-rated neighborhood restaurant and bar where you and your fur-family can enjoy a delicious meal with beautiful scenery on the outdoor patio while you listen to the live music provided there throughout the week. Hit up Biscuitville before you leave, where dog and people biscuits are served up by friendly staff for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and pets can feel welcome at one of their outdoor tables.
Right next door to Sutherlin and just outside of Danville is the neighborhood of Ringgold, where you can jump on the Ringgold Rail Trail or the Richmond and Danville Rail Trail. These trails follow the old railroad and lead history buffs along the transportation corridor that was used by the Confederacy during the Civil War. While your furry friends may not appreciate the history as well as you do, they will surely love the trek through the farmlands and woods that take you along the 2-3 miles of mostly flat land that make up the trail. While the area is pet-friendly, leashes are recommended, and you must clean up after your pets.
