The crown jewel of Surry’s furry-friendly offerings is the Grand Pup Resort Hotel & Spa in downtown Mount Airy. Check-in your dog or cat for an hour or for overnight. The resort will pamper your pet with luxury private suites, private green space, a full-service spa and an affiliated veterinarian. Be sure to check out the Wet Noses Boutique on the property and go next door to the Mayberry Bark & Meow Co.

Another must-see stop in downtown Mount Airy is the Dapper Hound, which features a wide array of items and clothing for dogs and cats.
