Looking for a fun excursion for you and dog? Rover.com, the world’s largest network of five-star pet sitters and dog walkers, has released its first set of Dog’s Day Out which highlights the best city walks to take with your dog in 20 American cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago and Seattle. Learn about dog-friendly hotspots in your own backyard with a guided walking tour (including a downloadable audio guide that will give you additional insider tips) that you and your dog can do together in one day.
Routes range from under 1 mile to 3 miles, and all feature dog-friendly parks, trails, city monuments, bars and restaurants as well as unique local businesses. Not only do the locations welcome dogs, they cater to them — offering amenities like water bowls, patio areas and separate doggie menus.
