Knowing of the many mental and physical health and social benefits that owning a dog can have, such as better heart health and greater happiness, the Simms community at The Cottages at the Highlands Yankee Trace in Centerville is completely dog friendly. Our Homeowner’s Association allows for up to three dogs and all types, both large and small, are welcome. Quite a few of our current homeowners enjoy the many pleasures and advantages of dog ownership.
Quiet streets at The Cottages and paved walking paths throughout Yankee Trace entice owners and their dogs out for a walk to get some exercise and enjoy the beauty of the natural surroundings. Sidewalk and street improvements on Paragon Road are ready for longer walks.
While out walking, many stop by the model home to say “Woof” to Bronwyn Graham-Duteil, our salesperson at The Cottages. A dog-lover and an active supporter of SICSA (Society for the Improvement of Conditions for Stray Animals), Bronwyn reminds us that, of course, dogs must be leashed when out for a walk, and their owners are responsible for “picking up” after their pooch! To help with this, the community provides pooch pick-up dispensers at strategic locations.
For more fun activity, Centerville-Washington Park District offers a Dog Park at Oak Grove Park on Social Row Road, located approximately 3.5 miles from The Cottages. They have activities for canines throughout the year and separate areas for large and small dogs to socialize and run. Check out their website at http://www.cwpd.org/oak_grove_dogpark.html.
Also nearby are three pet supply stores, three veterinary clinics, and 19 parks within a four mile radius of The Cottages.
