Dog-Friendly Adventures 

Just like us, our pups love an opportunity to get out of the house to socialize with others and to bond with their human. Not only is it good for their socialization skills, but their mental and physical health as well! Below we’ll share some of Charlotte’s Best: pup tested, dog parent-approved, things to do! 
(Be sure to call ahead as Covid could affect current open/closed dates and times)
First on the list is McAlpine Creek Park! Our seasoned clients know this to be our home away from home. This 115-acre park comes with two fenced-in sections, one for the big bois and one for the small ones. It has a 1.5-mile nature trail, a 3-acre lake, and more! This is just a general park that includes a dog park section so there are plenty of things for your pups humans to enjoy as well!
This is Charlotte's first and largest indoor, heated pool for the doggos! It’s a 26ft x 18ft pool for your dog to play in alone or with friends! Only the AquaPups staff is allowed in the pool but you are welcome to watch and cheer on your pup from the sidelines. You must call to schedule your first visit which will be an orientation to go over the rules and costs $30 per pup. After the initial visit you no longer need to make an appointment, but there is a per/dog swim fee or you can purchase an Aquapups Swim Club membership. This place also offers doggie pool parties! 
This dog park is based in Kannapolis, NC. This park comes fully loaded for fun with an Olympic-sized swimming pool, two water slides, an 18 hole training course, an unfenced area, and 12+ acres of fenced-in areas. After a quick 5-minute screening process you have full access to the park and have the option to purchase a day pass or a 30-day pass! 
This 2,100 acre Fort Mill park is sporting horse, bike, and dog park trails. The dog park itself is 12 acres of enclosed natural space for dogs of all sizes to play in and enjoy! You must become a Dog Park Member to enter the park and follow some simple park rules. This park includes hydration and dog washing stations, plenty of benches, and seating with a mile-long trail leading to lakefront access. 
This preserve offers 16 miles of leash-on trails for you and your pup! These trails include a creek, a lake, and plenty of opportunities for close encounters with nature and wild animals.
