What are some dog-friendly neighborhoods in Charlottesville?

Wherever you go in Charlottesville, you will be able to find neighborhoods with tons of activities and things to do with dogs. North Downtown is within walking distance of the main downtown core and also has access to lots of parks perfect for walking dogs of all sizes and endurance levels. Another neighborhood that is closer to downtown Charlottesville is the Belmont neighborhood. It is close to restaurants, shops, and outdoor activities like festivals, and is great for city walks with dogs. Fry's Spring is also a great neighborhood in Charlottesville and is home to Azalea Park, a 23-acre sprawling park with on-leash trails and a designated off-leash area too.

Why do dog owners love Charlottesville?

Home to the Downtown Mall, one of the largest walkable malls in America, Charlottesville is close to Washington DC (about a two-hour drive) and boasts lots of charm and character that dog owners love. With four distinct seasons, dogs and owners get to experience a true spring, summer, fall and winter, and the many neighborhood parks and communities make walking and playing with dogs easy and fun. History buffs beeline to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson's 1769 mansion, while the Virginia Children's Museum is the spot to take the kids for a little hands-on learning. Meanwhile Michie Tavern, established in 1784, is a hearty eatery with serious history, and there's more history to be had at The Rotunda, designed by Jefferson and located on the original grounds of the University of Virginia.

What are some great dog-walking parks in Charlottesville?

Charlottesville dog sitters and owners have lots of places they can take their dogs to for fun adventures. Popular Azalea Park has over 23 acres of fields, trails, and even an off-leash area, so you're sure to find something for every dog there! Greenbrier Park is another large recreational area with walking and biking trails along Meadow Creek. It's perfect for strolling along with small dogs, or taking a jog with larger, more active dogs. Pen Park is Charlottesville's oldest park, and is seen as the go-to park for both country and city residents. A 1.5 mile trail gives dog sitters a nice, quiet place to take dogs for a walk that is still in city limits and within walking distance of other places.

A walk in one of Charlottesville's picturesque parks, a stroll down a neighborhood street - whatever your dog sitter chooses to do with your dog in Charlottesville, you can rest assured your dog is in good hands with Rover!
