Translated, Baton Rouge means "red stick," and this extended community of 800,000 people definitely enjoys playing fetch with dogs. It's a comparatively young city, with Louisiana State University, Southern University and other college students making up almost a quarter of the population, largely female (100 women for every 86 men)... and seemingly they all have a dog and need a pet sitter. Baton Rouge boasts five off-leash dog parks, four sponsored by the Raising Cane's Chicken-Finger chain. Taking a pet for a stroll is a great way to beat the heat and humidity, and dog sitters frequent Comite River City Park, the Mississippi River levee or LSU Lakes, where dogs can go for a swim or mingle with other canines. When it comes time to leave town, pet parents trust DogVacay.com to find the best Baton Rouge dog sitting and home dog boarding hosts.
Downtown has two of the pet friendliest cafes anywhere - The Bulldog, and Lucy's Retired Surfers Bar and Restaurant, where pet sitters can dine with their furry guests and enjoy ice water and tasty Cajun cuisine. But if you try to head indoors with your dog, to the state capitol (34 stories, tallest in the United States) or the Mall at Cortana or Mall of Louisiana (the state's biggest shopping centers), they'll tell you take a hike... and the 12-mile Capitol Historical Trail that winds through town doesn't allow dogs either. Not to worry, say hello to DogVacay.com and find a pet sitting or home dog boarding host in Baton Rouge to care for your pup.
