Pick up your pooch and hit the lake this summer! Deep Creek Lake is a major dog friendly destination, so you don’t have to leave man or woman’s best friend behind while you enjoy everything the lake has to offer!
A recent addition to the wonderful Deep Creek Lake community has been the newly constructed HART for Animals Center. This tremendous new center offers many luxuries that cater to your pups and old friends alike!
Recently, in February of 2014, the center opened the Bredel Veterinary Care Center, a full service clinic, theBed ‘n Bark Inn, a pet hotel so that your pet can enjoy a stay at Deep Creek Lake even if your vacation rental isn’t dog friendly, the Head to Tails Salon, where your puppy can be pampered like the king or queen he or she really is, and the HART Shoppe, a modern store with a great lineup of basic puppy essentials! All four of these operations in the new HART for Animals Center are a tremendous asset to pet owners looking to escape to Deep Creek Lake!
Don’t forget to check regulations before you bring your four-legged friends to the Deep Creek Lake State Park! This park and many others have seasonal restrictions on pet admittance, and many don’t allow dogs until later in the summer.
Don’t fret though, as there are numerous activities you and your best friend can enjoy! There are several trails and hiking paths that provide great exercise for you and your dog. Year-round access to the Browning, Beckman, and Garrett Camp loops and several other locations near Deep Creek Lake are great opportunities for a little exercise for your pooch.
That’s not all! As you’ll see, Deep Creek Lake is an incredibly dog-friendly destination that is well-known for its consideration for dogs. There are many dog friendly vacation rentals available to book for your summer vacation to Deep Creek, and many local restaurants that welcome dogs with open arms as well!
Some of the local restaurants that cater to our four-legged friends are The Crab Shack, Sorellee’s Pizza Pub, Lakeside Creamery, Archie’s Barbeque, and Trader’s Coffee House, which even has a canine hitching post! Check out Deep Creek Lake’s nearly endless pet owner perks, and be sure to check out the many dog friendly rentals available at Dog Friendly Deep Creek.
