Savannah Georgia and your Dog

Pet Friendly Savannah Georgia

This has been my second time visiting Savannah, Georgia and it is becoming more and more pet friendly! It’s a great city, especially for city dogs as there are a lot of people milling around the squares. Old town Savannah is great to explore because it’s really flat. Walking from square to square is an awesome way to see and smell the sights. Be careful of fetching or sniffing in the moss, I got some in my eye and it hurt really bad. Walking along the river is pretty awesome too, lots of new smells to check out and people are always smiling and wanting to pat you.

The best thing about being in Old Savannah is that there are a lot of walking tours and we get to go on them. I am a bit of a history buff so even though it may appear that I was too busy sniffing, I was actually taking in all this information about Savannah that I never knew! The Savannah heat catches up with you though, so make sure you carry some water to stay hydrated.

Places to Eat

There’s a great pet store, https://woofgangbakery.com/ with 2 locations in Savannah. Check out the Bull street store for pet food, they carry the best and the St. Julien street location in City Market is really good if you need some treats. While you’re there, visit Sorry Charlies for some truly yummy oysters (raw, fried, grilled), sip some rosé and watch the world walk by. https://www.sorrycharlies.com/ Not too far out of downtown, I walked there but it was a bit of a hike, there is a Petco that is one of the best Petco’s I have ever been in. Literally, everything and bonus, right next door to a Whole Foods.

Dog Friendly Parks

Outside of the Historic District, Savannah has a bunch of dog friendly trails. Alltrails is a great resource, for any place to hike. https://www.alltrails.com/us/georgia/savannah. I enjoy walking around Bonaventure Cemetery and Skidaway Island State Park for longer hikes. Tybee Island is really special, too. Unfortunately, the beach does not allow dogs – even on a leash and beware of a hefty fine, $300. Ouch!
