With twenty dog parks, five dog-friendly hiking trails, and three pet-friendly tours, you and Fido can kick your heels up - or paws - and enjoy Alexandria, Virginia from head to tail.

Spend a dog-day-afternoon cruising along with the Potomac Riverboat Company. Or, continue to slurp up some history and tour the grounds of Mount Vernon, home to George Washington -- and many, many dogs during the time the First President lived here. Ready for a little exercise? Spend a couple of hours at one of the many great dog parks in the city. For a little off-leash frolicking, try the Dog Run Park at Carlyle. Or sniff out some fun at the Beatley Library Dog Park. You'll find plenty of toys and can even get in a spirited game of tug-of-war.

Heading out of town and can't take your pal with you? Not to worry! Rover has plenty of dog boarding options available in and around Alexandria, VA! Our network of pet sitters and dog walkers can't wait to spend the day with your pet.
