Let’s be honest, our 4-legged friends are more than just pets. They are a part of the family! While we are planning out our weekend activities, we don’t want to leave Fido out of the fun. The good news is-Atlanta is a majorly pet-friendly place. If you are out for a stroll, you’ll notice storefronts throughout the city leave a refreshing bowl of H20 out for our furry friends. There are also countless dog parks throughout the city, and there are even some great pet-centered activities and events! Check out a few of our picks below.
