Pet Smart


This is one of the nicer Pet Smarts. The staff is friendly but they don't carry some items that other stores carry. They carry their own ice melt instead of Safe Paws which is widely carried in most stores which is safe for pets, decks, lawns, gardens and doesn't damage carpet if it is brought in. This is huge if you live in an area that has snow 5 mon. out of the year.

Historic park with trails and woods to walk in


Walk through one of Vermont\'s most beautiful landscapes, under the shade of sugar maples and 400-year-old hemlocks, across covered bridges and alongside rambling stone walls. As you walk on the trails everything you hear about Vermont is right in front of you. Our favorite time to go is the fall. You feel like you are walking in a painting. Dogs are supposed to be leashed at all time, but deep in the woods, we may have broken that rule. You must pick up after you dog at all times. Please keep it clean for the others.

A beautiful park near downtown


White Park is a beautiful park to take a walk in. Dogs have to be leashed and picked up after at all times. This is a large park and a wonderful place to walk, read or just hang out with your pooch. You will see many people with dogs, this is a great dog friendly city. If you walk down town on a week end you will see a lot of familys, human and fur. Have a great time!!

Beautiful Park on Charles River


This is a beautiful quiet park on the charles river in a lovely neighborhood. Is a historic spot where Revolutionary soldiers practiced, cattle grazed, Vietnam War protests were held, a pope has said mass. People can assemble for a cause so check ahead to see what's going on. It's a wonderful place for a nice walk or just to sit and people watch. Dogs must be on a leash, in control and picked up after at all times.

oldest public park in the country


The starting point of the Freedom Trail. The Boston Common is known to be one of the oldest public parks in the country. The park is almost 50 acres in size. The "Common" has been used for many different purposes throughout its long history. Until 1830, cattle grazed the Common, and until 1817, public hangings took place here. British troops camped on Boston Common prior to the Revolution and left from here to face colonial resistance at Lexington and Concord in April, 1775. This is such a beautiful place to take your dog. There are people enjoying the park reading, walking, playing frisbee, picnicing...you name it. Please keep you dog on a leash or long line, so many people love dogs but not everyone does. There is a leash law and in this family park please respect it and clean up after your pooch at all times. You will want to make this a regular stop and part of your routine. However, like any large park, I would NOT reccomend going in at night. And as always carry a cell phone, you never know when you'll need it.

Our favorite park


This park is located around the tidal basin. You can walk by the Jefferson memorial and the Franklin Delano Roosevelt memorial. There are also Japanese Cherry trees and it is heaven on earth in the spring. Walk the whole loop and your dog will love you. Make sure they are on a leash and you pick up after them. This will soon be your favorite too.

beautiful park known for the statue the awakening


This is a great park to go for a walk in. Located between the Potomac river and the washington channel you have water views on either side. At the end of the park is the famous statue The Awakening. This is something you won't soon forget and spooks some dogs. It is of a man climing out of the ground! I wouldn't go after dusk and bring a cell phone in case anything happens...safety first. Enjoy, bring a lunch and sit on a bench.

If you are in the city and you want to take your dog for a wonderful nature walk or run this is the place to go. Located a short walk from the metro along the wooded trails you will be able to see whitetail deer, raccoons and foxes. The park is safe but with any remote area especially in the city women shouldn't go alone, you can never be too safe. The city park run by the National Park Service. Dogs on leash are allowed in the park. There is a paved trail and lots of picnic areas, trails and activities. The park extends from near downtown Washington to Maryland. Breath the fresh air and go for a walk with your best friend

You will be in awe when you walk up to the memorial and see Abraham Lincoln sitting in his chair. If you are seeking inspiration, hope and peace...please go. Walk around the memorial, soak in the emotion that surrounds this place. Bring a book or lunch for you and your pooch. Watch the emotion on all who come. It is a tranquil place to walk your dog around the tidal basin. According to the National Park Service, well behaved, leashed dogs are allowed at the memorial except underneath the dome. This allows a pretty close view of the statue for your pup.

The best Memorial to visit during Cherry Blossom


This is by far our favorite memorial to go and relax. It is located right on the tidal basin an surrounded by Cherry Blossoms. It is hard to find a more beautiful and tranquil place in the spring. On New Years,watch couples get engaged, during the sring and summer there are people from all different walks of life breathing it all in. Walk your pup around or sit back and take it all in. According to the National Park Service, well behaved dogs are allowed on leash except in the area underneath the dome.

People wait until it opens for the season...


People wait until Memorial Day when it opens and are sad when it closes down in Labor Day. Drive up, and eat in your car or take your food over to the picnic tables to enjoy. Make sure you have a cone after. Your only complaint you will have is the long lines, but it's worth the wait. You won't be surprised when you see families, people with pups and soft ball teams getting a treat whether they won or lost. Make sure you stop by. They even serve dog ice cream and give you a bowl of water for your pup.

Drive In with Classic favorites


This is a place where you can get the largest home made ice cream cone you have ever seen. They have a restaurant with seating inside year round and must pick up food orders inside. During the warm months the ice cream window is open. The only problem you will have is trying to find a place to park. We always get our favorites and drive 2 miles down the road to lake masabesic to eat at the picnic tables. While you are there you will see so many others who do the same thing. Although you can't swim in the water because it is the resevoir, there are many trails to walk your pup around while eating your cone. Enjoy, like many of us have been doing for decades.

legendary food and ice cream


The backroom restaurant is outstanding but no dogs. You can get the same food at the front take out stand which is always busy. The quality never wavers. Known for their Chicken Tenders and home made ice cream it has made this special place world known. Prices reasonable and large portions. In the summer there is an Ice Cream window that will always have a line. Get your favorite cone and sit on one of the large granite benches in front or walk across the street to watch a softball game or walk around Dorrs Pond. THIS IS A MUST STOP!!!! Once you go, you will go again and again. Then you will have them programed in your cell phone.

Gentlemans Karaoke bar...not for dogs


You know when you are there when you see DIK in neon, Dupont Italian Kitchen. Not really known for it's food, it is a Karaoke bar for mature gentleman and partners. It could be fun if it weren't for the numerous people who have had a dozen too many cocktails and the trouble with the sound equipment. I have heard it is a regular problem. If your a man looking for a new friend and willing to scream over the music, then check it out. I wouldn't go back or bring my dog. Dogs are allowed at the outdoor tables but they should change this...dogs shouldn't be subject to this loud noise, it gave us a headache...can't imagine what it would do to a pup.

Must like TRADIONAL AUTHENTIC Greek food


It was a little too much for me, but my friend loved it so I gave it 5 paws. You must like Authentic Greek food, there is nothing Americanized about this restaurant. It serves home-cooked Greek dishes including Moussaka and Spinach Pie. As an appetizer, sample traditional Tzatziki - a yogurt dip, or Dolmadakia - stuffed grape leaves. Meats were too seasoned for me. Dogs are allowed at the outdoor tables. The restaurant has outdoor tables only in the summer

This is not your cookie cutter Mexican restaurant. All food is home made, you won't want to go back to your chain restaurants. Margaritas with fresh lime juice, you won't want just one so plan on a cab. This will be a favorite while you eat on the out door tables with your pup, they will bring them a fresh bowl of water but don't give him the food, it will too seasond for his tummy. Enjoy!

a true destination for you and your pup


This park gets 100 paws!!!!!!! This national park ranks high on the tail wagging meter. Dogs are allowed on most of the hiking trails, which is unusual for a national park. There are miles and miles of both hiking trails and carriage roads. Pets are also allowed at the campgrounds, but must be attended at all times. They are not allowed on sand beaches or on the steeper hiking trails. Pets must be on a 6 foot or less leash at all times. There is one exception to the leash rule. There is an area in the park that is privately owned where dogs are allowed to run leash-free. It is called Little Long Pond and is located near Seal Harbor. Overall, this is a pretty popular national park for dogs and their dog-loving owners. There is a $10 entrance fee into the park, which is good for 7 days. You can also purchase an audio tape tour of the Park Loop Road which is a self-guided auto tour. The driving tour is about 27 miles and takes 3 to 4 hours including stops. Audio tapes are available at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center.

They are open for lunch, afternoon tea and popovers, and dinner. Enjoy entrees like the Grilled Maine Salmon, Steamed Lobster, and Maine Crab Cakes. The restaurant also offers salads, beef, chicken, desserts and a children's menu. The dining traditions of Jordan Pond House date back to the late 1800's....still works, classic and a find!

Yes you can get your supplies here, but as far as standards go, this one needs some help. I was there picking up some nylabones and a bobo for Bella and there were 4 different puddles of pee in the store and no one was picking them up. It was really gross and a little girl stepped in one. Not sanitary for humans or dogs. One missed puddle ok, 4? No way! Also, many agressive dogs on long lines that the owners don't pay attention to. I refuse to bring my dog in.

This is one of the jewels of the city that starts in Boston and goes through surrounding cities. It is the most beautiful area, the charles river on one side, lush grass on the other with the city scape behind it. You will walk by many historic, scenic sites along with bridges all built100 s of years ago , go though havard square and into towns with more lush areas. If you are in Boston you MUST take advantage of this walk.

The BEST vet service in New England


If you have an emergency by all means go to your local service clinic. If they can stabalize and it is a complicated case...DRIVE TO TUFTS! I realize some will have a long drive, but it is worth it. They are open 24 hours, have the best specialist and every possible equipment to diagnose and help your pet. It is a university which accepts maybe 2% of aplicants so these are the best and the brightest. Your pet will be monitored 24 hours by a team always supervised and cared for. They care for horses, down to small animals. My dog had surgery there and I wouldn't want to go anywhere esle if I had a real problem. The only other surgeon who worked on my dog, went to school there, and did his residency there. TRUST TUFTS, GO TO TUFTS, THE BEST CARE POSSIBLE.

A great park with lots of history


This is a wonderful park built over 100 years ago. Named after General John Stark who coined the phrase, Live Free or Die...NH State motto. In the park is his fenced resting place with iron gate around it and a large monument of him riding a horse. There are cobblestone roads that intertwine through out the park. Up, down and around. Great exercise as there are many hills. Between the roads are large luch areas for resting or walking. There are lots of people who picnic there and several trash cans for, of course trash and dog poop.

This is such a beautiful park. They have several softball field, tennis courts and large playground, picnic benches and grassy areas in trees and a large LARGE open area for all to enjoy. A leash is required in the city, but people with extremely well trained dogs will take the leashes off and the dog heals at the owners side. Walking your dog around the park is a treat. Bring a lunch, watch people fly kites and enjoy the day.

A "dog friendly" hotel


I'm not going into the saga of having to go to 3 different rooms, one wasn't the one that I reserved, and 2 were filthy. The hotel is set up as a square with a courtyard in the middle where dogs can be "on leash" Also in teh courtyard is a bar and deck where the entire hotel can hear loud noise from the deck and bar. I had to cross the court yard 6 times. There were dogs there off leash and 2 tried to attack my girl each time. When I reported this nothing was done. I had her on a leash and putting her behind me and pushing the dogs with my foot were the only ways of protecting us. The staff was useless, the rooms unclean and your dog probably won't be safe as mine wasn't. I didn't stay and drove hours and hours home. Do not waste your money or time here!!! I would have given 0 paws if that was an option

This is a beautiful area with wooded trails that you can hike around the pond. Useing a leash is a must but some do take theirs off and you never know what will be around the next corner. You don't want an off leash pup getting hit by a skunk. Mix up your places to walk and have fun. But think about bug spray, it is a wooded area around water.

I went to the park at off hours. Your exerience will depend on the dogs and their owners. There are some great people who have "play dates" and times that they go so there won't be anyone else there. The rest of the time it is a zoo. People hang out in a pack and it is free reign for the dogs. Too many people don't pay attention to their dogs and you dog gets mauled, jumped on and mounted! The regulars pick up after their dogs, others do not. I would NEVER go on a weekend, it is filled with dogs that have no manners. People bring their dogs there after never walking them and they are insane. Beware.

I was amazed what Joyce was able to do with my girl. The Aqua Treadmill was a miracle machine. Joyce went in with Bella everytime and adjusted the water level and speed through out her treatment. Hot, cold packs and massage along with basic agility...no jumps! Sensaishi turned my dog into an addict, she was depressed on days that we didn't go. They also have grooming, day care, rehab for different injuries and boarding. Tell them Bella sent you, you won't regret it!

The Best Clinic in NH !


We have followed Dr. Jim Mckiernan from a vet at a local clinic to his own clinic an hour a way. We would follow him to the ends of the earth he is so good. He is what you wish for in a vet and a clinic. They love the animals and treat them like family. We consider them part of our family. They always seem to have room for you and give you an honest diagnosis and options. Dr. Jim is constantly reading journals about new medicine and attending conferences about new procedures. If they can't help you they will get a referral to the specialist for your problem. They bring in leading surgeons to work in their state of the art facility to make sure your pet is taken care of. The clinic is on the grounds next to a boarding facility that offers doggie day care. Although we have never used it (Bella doesn't get boarded) we have heard wonderful things about them. They are also 20 min from the beach which makes it a fun reward to Bella to go romp on the beach after a visit. I can't say enough good things about this vet and his clinic. If he moved out of state...I might have to move too :-) Is that considered stalking? LOL. Please have confidence if you are in the are to go to Great Bay Animal Hospital. Tell them Bella sent you!!!
