Festival Season Is Almost Here!

Heart Spot participates in several festival and activities throughout the year. While I can't be at all of them I want to give my clients & friends this valuable resource to help plan a great day out with your furry, feathered or scaled family member!  Check back often for monthly upcoming pet & pet friendly events.

April Pet Events

Tails on Trails Club - All Month

7 participating Georgia State Parks


Cost: $15  membership fee

From the coast to the Atlanta-area with lakes, mountains, forests and more in between, hikers and their four-legged friends are challenged to explore specific trails at seven Georgia State Parks. We'd love to see your photos! Tag #GaStateParks and #TailsOnTrails. To join the Tails on Trails Club, stop by one of seven participating park offices,  and purchase a $15 membership card, or buy a card on-line. Hike all seven parks with your dog and get your card punched by rangers. Finish them all and you'll earn a bragging-rights t-shirt for yourself and a bandanna for your dog.

You don't need a dog to be able to complete the challenge on your own. No time limit applies, so hikers can take as long as they wish to visit all seven parks. Dogs must be kept on a maximum 6' leash when in the park. Please clean up after your pet.
