As the leaves change and the breezes get cooler, it’s a great time to get outdoors and enjoy time with our four-legged friends. For dog lovers, our pups are beloved family members and make Alpharetta outings even more fun. Luckily, this city has so many ways to spend the day or weekend with our furry loved ones in tow!

Check out these Alpharetta tail-wag worthy activities:

Waggy World Paw Park at Wills Park


Waggy World Paw Park is the perfect place to take your dog for a morning or afternoon of burning off energy for both of you. Your pup can make new friends in this open roaming park, where many Alpharetta’s canine enthusiasts bring their pets to run out their zoomies. For more guidelines on park rules, check out the Waggy World Paw Park page. If you’d like to get your own steps in while at the park, put your dog on a leash and walk through the treelined walking trails throughout Wills Park!

Big Creek Greenway

The Big Creek Greenway features 8 miles of dog approved pathways. With multiple access points throughout the city, it’s super easy to decide what route you’d like to take with your exercise partner! The 12-foot wide paths are great, whether you’d like to walk, run or skate alongside your pooch.

Heavenly Pet Spa

After a hard day of play, spruce up your dog’s glam game with a trip to Heavenly Pet Spa. Offering multiple package options, you can choose to get your pet a quick scrub-a-dub and get back to your plans, or you can choose a lengthier service including teeth cleaning, nail trimming, hair trimming and more. Snuggling with your pal will be so much more enjoyable when they’re so fresh and so clean!

Shop it Up!

After you pamper your pet, take them to The Unexpected Pooch for fun and unique pet accessories, outfits, toys and treats. With Halloween around the corner, you can find the perfect pet costume or get them a furr-tastic trick-or-treat!

For outdoor enthusiasts, Orvis at Avalon offers a collection of dog accessories and toys in their pet-friendly store! Let your pup pick out a squeaky duck toy or find their new favorite bed to bring back home! Reward yourself for a successful day of spoiling your fur baby by treating yourself to a cold brew and snack at Barleygarden Kitchen & Craft Bar, where your pet can relax with you on the patio.

With so much for you and Fido to do, why not stay the weekend? Plan a getaway at one of Alpharetta’s 28 modern and upscale hotels – many of which are pet-friendly! To search the Alpharetta hotels that are pet-friendly, look for the dog icon and then book your stay here.
