Hey! I am from Raleigh and go to school in Boone. My family has two dogs and I am about to get my first puppy of my own. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any awesome resources in the area. I remember taking Murphy to a summer dog event called "Bark Around the Park" in Raleigh about 8 years ago and it was a blast. We actually won 10 lbs of dog treats for first place in the dog-human race. Ive found a few dog parks which is great, and have researched a few cool pet stores, but I was wondering if anyone had first hand experience with anything they would recommend. Dog friendly places, great pet stores, puppy classes, etc. Anywhere in NC is fine! If its not close to me it would still be interesting to know.
Actually, if you know anything SUPER cool nationally, I think it would just be fun to share. But that is just me.
Also if you are from NC and just want to respond, Id love to know that I have North Carolinian brethren on the Daily Puppy!
