This isn’t your average dog walk.
It’s time to celebrate the fall season by grabbing your pup’s leash and heading to Mount Vernon, where every Saturday in October, visitors can take a one-hour, 1.25-mile walk through historical grounds to discover how dogs influenced George Washington.
The All the President’s Pups tour teaches guests about Washington’s love for dogs, his dogs’ unusual names and his efforts to breed his very own hunting dogs, all while seeing five historic locations around Mount Vernon.
Looking for even more fun for your four-legged friend? The Howl-o-Ween celebration (yes, it includes doggie trick-or-treating) is set for Sunday, Oct. 27, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., where guests can bring their pups to the grounds for a photo op in front of the mansion, meet friends from Washington’s world and enjoy puppy-friendly treats throughout the day (while supplies last).
