Paws & Play During the Dog Days of Summer in Staunton


Whether your dog is your necessary therapy animal, your best friend, or part of the family, you probably like being together as much as possible! If you hate to leave home without your fur baby by your side, you’ll be pleased to learn that Staunton loves dogs. Here’s our guide to dog-friendly restaurants, lodgings, parks, and activities. Enjoy the dog days of summer with your pet!

Grab a Drink

There’s nothing better than bonding with your best buddy over a brew.

Have an Adventure

Hit the park or the trails with your four-legged friend.

  • Gypsy Hill Park has a walking loop, open spaces, and doggy bag stations. The dogs will love the Gypsy Hill Bark Park, which has enclosures for small and large dogs. The park includes tunnels, training ladders, “fire hydrants,” and benches for humans to sit. 

Get a Room

Some Staunton lodgings let you share your room with your pup.

Dine Together

Staunton has several dining spots where you can dine with your pup. They might even bring him water and a doggy menu!

  • Every weekend you can have a meal with your pup at Blu Point Seafood. They now offer your pooch their own menu with some favorites like The Pup Patty, Paw Lickin’ Chicken, and a Sweet Pup Cup.

Go Shopping

It’s not surprising to come across a dish of cool water waiting on the sidewalk on a hot day in downtown Staunton.
