Dog Adventures at John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge

​One of the great things about Philly is that you don't have to travel far to take your pups for an adventure. Last weekend we took our own dog Jax to John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge for a wander around the wetlands as signs of Spring were starting to emerge. We saw loads of turtles, birds and even a few fish jump right out of the water. Even though the parking lot was packed (it was the first warm weekend of the Spring), there are enough miles of trails that we didn't feel like we were right on top of other hikers/fishers/birdwatchers/dog walkers. Jax loved sniffing the trails and was happy to take a break when we stopped for 15 minutes to watch turtles on a log. ProTip: If you stop in
