There are a number of colleges that bring therapy dogs onto campus to help de-stress students. UNC has done this in a unique way that intersects with their powerhouse sports program. The UNC baseball team's head trainer added a young golden retriever named Remington (Remi, for short) to the roster in 2017. Remington is a trained therapy dog and his job is to provide the comfort only a big furry canine can to UNC baseball players who might be injured, experiencing a slump, or just plain anxious. He's a welcome and reassuring sight in the dugout, and also has a few tricks up his sleeve, which include holding his hat in his teeth when standing at attention while the national anthem is being played and being able to open the refrigerator to retrieve bottles of Gatorade for players.

Also new to the UNC campus is Franklin, a chocolate Labrador retriever, who works with the UNC campus police as a support dog for students and faculty who may be experiencing anxiety, emotional stress, or trauma. Hats off to UNC for making dogs a part of campus life!

And your pup can get in on the action with his down "doggy dog" for free!

For Southern cooking with a twist, we love Weathervane Restaurant, which has a lovely secluded pet friendly patio. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, menu choices include Pulled Chicken Cobb Salad, Fried Green Tomato BLT, and Blackened North Carolina Catfish Tacos.

Just a short ride from the college is The Spotted Dog in Carrsboro, which has a fantastically creative menu and a pet friendly patio (as it should!).

And when your pup is ready to romp, let him race off leash at Chapel Hill Dog Park or Southern Community Dog Park. Both have areas for large and small dogs and offer complimentary poop bags.
