While not all national parks are very dog-friendly, for their own valid reasons, there are plenty of parks where I’ve been able to get outside and hike my heart out—at least until I get exhausted from over-excitement, and then my dads will need to carry me. These are some of my very favorite dog-friendly national parks I’ve explored so far, and where you should take your bark rangers, too!
Humans aren’t the only ones who love national parks! For nature-loving dogs, these are the best places to explore. So much to see! So much to smell! Just don’t forget the leash.
Ultimately, I get the sense that homesickness is something that really doesn’t affect me, and I guess that’s because my idea of home isn’t really a specific location; rather, it’s about the people I’m with, no matter where that may be. This is why our RV is the best sense of home I’ve ever felt.
