HISTORIC TRIANGLE — It’s no surprise that our region loves dogs. 

Maybe it’s the colloquial name for Duke of Gloucester (“DoG”) Street or maybe it’s the abundant amount of walking trails and nature parks. Whatever the reason, there is no shortage of places that love dogs. 

Here’s a roundup of all the pupper-themed restaurants and places around the Triangle.
