Pet Friendly Activities in Arlington

Did you know that The Maxwell is not only FULL of luxury apartments for rent, but, more importantly, pet-friendly* luxury apartments?  We know Ballstonians love their pets just as much as we do (come by to meet The Maxwell “pet,” Max!), so we wanted to make sure that they felt welcome.  At The Maxwell, we know you and your pets will love our outdoor, grass area for walking and playing fetch, but there are so much many more awesome things to do with your pets in Ballston outside of the Maxwell too.

While you’re at work, you can let WOOFS! Dog Training Center work their magic with your smart pups at their Ballston location (4241 N Pershing Drive).  With a wide range of services offered, such as training, doggy play dates, sleepovers (boarding), and even workout classes that you can take with your pup (such as agility training, speed training and more), there is something for everyone to take advantage of at WOOFS!

Arlington in its self is super dog-friendly, as there are eight off-leash dog parks in Arlington, VA.  The Clarendon Dog Park is relatively new, fenced in and features a mulch-covered ground to reduce mud.  But just three miles away from The Maxwell Apartments is the Shirlington Dog Park.  Its claim to fame is the open gate leading to a stream, perfect for your water-loving pups to play in.  That, plus separate parks for small and big dogs, are what make it a local favorite.

If you’re in need of some new home décor, you could pay a visit to one of the Arlington-local pet photographers, like All Paws Pet Photography or Brad Novak Pet Photography, to turn your beloved furry friends into art!  With up to 1,264 sq. ft. in your new apartment at The Maxwell, you’ll have plenty of wall space to decorate.

You can also take your dog out for a special treat at a local dog bakery.  Dogma Gourmet Dog Bakery & Boutique, located just two miles from The Maxwell, makes all of their healthy dog treats in-store, only using human-grade ingredients.  They also offer grooming services as well!  It’s a great way to “kill two birds with one stone,” making pet care easier than ever for a busy dog owner.
