Dear PoP – Question for Dog Owners


“Dear PoP,

I recently became the proud owner of a wonderful Lab, my first dog in my adult life. She’s very well behaved and loves people but not so fond of her fellow canines. I don’t have a lot of outdoor space and would like to take her out for more than a walk on the sidewalks of Columbia Heights. She only likes the dog park a Park and 11th when she’s the only one there which isn’t too often. I was wondering if your readers could suggest some dog friendly parks, cafes and other neighborhood public places where I could take her, especially now that the weather is going to get cooler. BTW, she loves to go to Eastern Market on Sundays.”

Hmm, I’m curious what others offer but I know their is a new dog park coming to 17th and S, there is also one at 11th and R and another in Adams Morgan in the park right after the Ellington Bridge. Where do other folks like to take their dogs?
