More on Washington DC

Though this is a leash-required area, the photo opportunities are incredible.

Of course, some dog parents prefer a more rustic environment. Well, D.C. has that too! Travel few miles north to Rock Creek Park and discover a national playground with plenty of trails and smells for your dog to enjoy.
