For many of us, our dogs are family. It’s hard leaving them home day after day. Those big glassy eyes and drooping ears can be somewhat heartbreaking. So next time you hit the town, why not bring your pup along? Be sure to check out these dog-friendly spots in Farmville, where your furry plus one is welcome! Tail-wagging ensured.

Virginia St., just a few blocks off Main St. in Downtown Farmville, this new dog park offers fenced-in areas for both large and small dogs as well as watering stations.
