After filling your bellies, take a tour of pet friendly Savannah by accessing the walking trails and bike paths. The City of Savannah’s Leash Law does require that all pets be leashed when visiting city parks, squares, business and residential areas. It’s also good to carry a “scooping” device when escorting your animals. There are several tour companies that accept pets as well.

Plantation Carriage Company and Old Savannah Tours, Inc. are available for pet owners with small pets that can sit on the lap of their owner. Savannah Movie Tours has a leash-requirement, and to bring your pet along on Historic Savannah Carriage Tours, just call for permission.

Another hot spot is Troup Square, which is commonly called “Dog Bone Square” because of its elaborate pet friendly fountain. It’s located at Habersham and Charlton Streets near Firefly Café.

Finally, stop by the Grateful Hound, which is the first pet boutique of its kind in Savannah. It offers unique dog-themed gifts, environmentally friendly toys, pet-inspired art and high quality food and treats.

With so much to do and see, you won’t have a problem finding options for fun in pet friendly Savannah. If you need help with reservations or suggestions, don’t hesitate to call our team!
