Dog-Friendly Hendersonville NC

Dog Friendly Hendersonville NC

You may know how pet-friendly Asheville, North Carolina is, but do you know that Hendersonville, NC is also super pet friendly? Your dog is welcome to stroll the streets of downtown Hendersonville with you and there will be a bowl of water and treats to welcome you at multiple spots along the way. Your pooch will be begging you to stop by Wag! Pet Boutique for a toy or treat! If you want to exercise your dog you can walk around downtown, go for a hike, or take your dog to a park in the area. If you’re looking to let Fido run free, there are multiple dog parks in town. You can take your doggie to the dog park section at Jackson Park not far from downtown. Another city park is Pets’ Own Place on Seventh Avenue. Unlike Jackson Park, Pets’ Own Place is a fenced park that allows for separation of small and large dogs. Both parks are located by downtown Hendersonville, NC. Outside of Hendersonville, Fletcher Community Park has another wonderful dog park. After your pup is exhausted from play and you’re ready for a cold one, you can bring him with you to Sanctuary Brewing Company or Southern Appalachian Brewing. If local beer isn’t your thing, you can bring your pet out to Bold Rock Hard Cider in nearby Mills River, NC.

If you’re hungry don’t worry, your pet can come with you too! For breakfast or lunch downtown, Mountain Deli has an outdoor pet friendly patio area and excellent sandwiches. For lunch or dinner downtown, check out Never Blue or Mezzaluna, two restaurants that have an outdoor patio that’s pet friendly. They’ll make sure that your furry friend is hydrated too. Outside of downtown in Flat Rock, there are two great restaurants to eat at – Hubba Hubba Smokehouse or Flat Rock Village Bakery. They both share a nice outdoor area that is dog friendly, as long as your dog is leashed. They have free-ranging chickens around there, so keep that in mind!
