I’d say this is the most dog friendly spot in Charlottesville area. It’s hard to go Downtown and not see a dog there. They even have an event every year during Halloween called “Doggie Howl-O-Ween” where people bring their dogs and enter them into a costume contest.

2. Trump Winery

With an incredible view and large area to explore, your buddy will be very happy you brought them. While you get your wine on, your doggie can mingle with the other dogs there. The dog pictured above is my parent’s Bernedoodle, Cooper. He’s on Instagram, so go and follow him! (@CooperChauncey0410)

With the weather being so lovely, take your dog on a walk around UVa grounds. The Corner is a great spot to walk around. The Lawn on grounds is a staple when the weather is this nice. Some restaurants on The Corner even have their own water dog bowls so you don’t have to worry about it!
