Wheeling is major West Virginia city on the north side of the state, located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, and on the eastern shore of the Ohio River. Wheeling was the first capital of West Virginia, and has since become known as "The Friendly City". To dog lovers though, the city is also known as the dog-friendly city thanks to its large variety of dog-friendly parks and trails, and access to five veterinarians.

Wheeling Dog Park is a lovely park to bring Fido that shows how much the city cares for its pooches. The park is 1.3 acres, with separate areas for large and small dogs, and provides great amenities like water fountains, double-gated entrances, a grassy terrain, a walking trail, and benches. The park is in the Tunnel Green, a recreational park with a fenced-in baseball field, basketball courts, and paved walkways that are dog-friendly.

Wheeling Park is the largest public park in the city, and provides a dog and family-friendly atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. With over 45 acres of land, the park offers open space, 2.7 miles of paved trails, a serene garden, and multiple activities. There's a pond for fishing, two picnic pavilions, a playground, enclosed tennis and basketball courts, and restrooms. The park requires dogs to be on a leash inside the area, but also has water fountains, clean-up stations, and benches.

Wheeling is a dog-friendly and people-friendly city, and provides plenty of options to enjoy the day out together.
