7 Top Dog-Friendly Activities to Enjoy in Savannah, Georgia

At South Key Management, we personally understand the bond between an owner and their dog, and we know how hard it can be to leave our four-legged friends for vacations. The great news is that Savannah is an incredibly dog-friendly city and there are many things that you can do here with your furry friends! 

Here are six ways to spend time with your dogs in Savannah:

1 – Explore Savannah’s walkability together

Since Savannah is such a walkable city, it will be easy to spend time outside exploring with your dog. A few of our favorite spots to walk are:

  • River Street
  • Forsyth Park
  • Broughton Street

Forsyth Park is an ideal place to snap some cute pictures of your dog among the famous Forsyth Fountain scenery and seasonal flowers. 

2 – Learn the History with your pup

Savannah is so pet-friendly that there is even a historical walk dedicated to dogs! The Oliver Bentleys Historic Dog Walk is a 1-mile tour that lasts about 90 minutes (or longer depending on the dogs’ pace) and covers 7 of the 22 historic squares. Your tour guide will also help point out some of the dog-friendly restaurants around the city. 

All dogs will receive a little goodie bag with Ollie B. Biscuits and Bites, making this a really fun event for both you and your pup.
