People aren't the only ones taking advantage of Nashville's famous Centennial Park; their furry friends are just as happy to take a stroll or bask in the shade provided by the full-scale replica of the Parthenon. But Nashville's leash-free dog parks are just some of many exciting sights, sounds and smells for dogs and their humans when they visit Nashville, TN.

All-natural, healthy pet treats, food and supplies can be found at dog bakeries like See Spot Eat. Pampered pooches will love the toys, treats and haute-dog couture at Come. Sit. Stay. Take Fido to school at Dogs and Kat, the premier pet training academy of Nashville. Long a pet-prioritizing establishment, Loews Vanderbilt Hotel spoils its four-legged guests as much as their owners. Complimentary toys, dog bowls and treats are Loews' doggy equivalent of a mint on the pillow. The Dog Days of Summer promotion adds a Frisbee, delicious "Scooby BBQ Sliders" and tips on how and where to walk Fido.

Nashville also made our Top 10 Manly Cities list, which is an added bonus for man's best friend.
