Latest NewsTop Outdoor Dog-Friendly Spots to Spend Time with Your Pup in Westchester and Fairfield Counties!

April 21, 2022

April is finally here! With that comes more daylight, warmer weather, blooming flowers, and the desire to spend more time outside. Most likely, our pups are itching to enjoy this warm weather as well. However, not all outdoor spots are equal— some locations are more fun, practical, and suitable for our furry friends.

Figuring out which parks, trails, and locations are best for pups can be tricky, so Pets a Go Go pulled together some of our favorite outdoor dog-friendly spots in Westchester and Fairfield County for your consideration. We hope that you will enjoy these spots as much as we do!
