What we're about
Welcome to what I hope will be a great source for all things Dog Friendly. Be sure to check out the recurring 'event' on the first Monday of every month. It's not actually an event, but does give you lists of dog friendly places to go and things to do. Feel free to RSVP if/as needed. And, if you know of a place that's not on any of the lists, PM me with information so I can get it added.
There are always fun, dog-friendly events - festivals, fairs, adoption opportunities, restaurant patios, live music, hikes, runs, etc. - happening around Nashville (and surrounding areas - Franklin, Brentwood, Bellevue, Hendersonville, Murfreesboro, Thompson's Station, etc.), almost every weekend.
This is primarily a place to share information about dog-friendly events, and secondarily, an attempt to create a community of like-minded people who also try to include their dogs in at least a portion of their weekend activities (like I do). There is a companion Facebook page that I encourage you to LIKE and follow: https://www.facebook.com/DogFriendlyThingsToDoNashville/
A little about me... I moved to Tennessee almost five years ago now and love researching, sharing, scheduling and attending dog-friendly events with my dogs Stormy and Sunny. It would definitely be more fun for my fur-girls and me if we had companionship... of the human and canine variety! If you see us at an event, or want to make sure we connect during an event, be sure to comment or PM me so that we can make plans. Many events span many hours/days, making it sometimes complicated to narrow down a place/time to meet, but I'm more than willing to meet up if you'd like to pre-plan accordingly.
Your ideas, suggestions, comments, etc. are welcomed. If you know of an event, activity or patio that is dog friendly, please share it. Thanks and I look forward to meeting you!
Jane, Stormy, Sunny (& Katy the cat, too)
