If you were on the Atlanta BeltLine Sunday, you might have seen a pack of hungry dogs making their way down the trail.
No, not like that! They were looking for their next plated dish at one of the popular restaurants on the Atlanta BeltLine. Every month on a Sunday, we treat dogs to their best life ever with this restaurant crawl made just for them. We pad down the BeltLine, stopping at some of the dog-friendliest restaurants, who make a gourmet dish just for the pups, while their pawrents get small bites and a craft beer or soda.
We also take the dogs shopping at fashionable pet boutiques along the BeltLine. Because they get bored with their old toys and treats.
These pet stores give the doggies really cool swag. And they get lots of freebies to take home from small local pet business like Dulces de Luna, who lovingly make homebaked treats, and well-known national brands like Brutus Bone Broth.
Plus, doggies - and humans - even make friends on our crawls. See this beautiful pic of Max giving kisses to Loki. How sweet is that?
Yeah, Barks and Bites is the perfect way to show your dog how much you love them - by giving them people food from some of Atlanta's best restaurants, and lots of fun new things to bring home. It's basically a luxury playdate.
This past Sunday, we had a great turnout for our unique restaurant crawl for dogs, with 8 dogs who brought 12 humans.
If you missed it, our next Doggie Food Crawl is Oct. 22, and will be a fundraiser for the Atlanta Humane Society. We are donating 10% of ticket sales to our human and furry friends there.
In the meantime, here are more adorable photos and videos from Sunday's Barks and Bites: Doggie Food Crawl on the Atlanta BeltLine. Warning: Cuteness overload may occur.
Do you think your doggie would love Barks and Bites? Don't wait to book - this event fills up fast!
