OKLAHOMA CITY, December 11, 2018 - Love's Travel Stops (Love's), the nation's industry-leading travel stop network, today announces it is now serving four-legged Customers at multiple Love's locations thanks to the opening of several new dog parks. The project began with four original dog parks at the following locations, with 29 additional sites set to open in 2019:

  • 200 Lower River Road NW. Charleston, Tennessee (I-75, Exit 33).
  • 9155 Highway 321 N. Lenoir City, Tennessee (I-40, Exit 346).
  • 1911 Highway 34 W. Dillon, South Carolina (I-95, Exit 190).
  • 3205 Five Chop Road. Orangeburg, South Carolina (I-26, Exit 154A).

"Catering to our Customers is a top priority for us at Love's and adding dog parks was the best way for us to serve those who travel with their treasured companions," said Greg Love, co-CEO of Love's. "Customers have been asking for safe and secure areas dedicated to their dogs, and we're thrilled to finally announce this much-anticipated addition to select Love's locations."

Each dog park is approximately 50 feet by 100 feet and includes double air-locked gates for pet safety, well-maintained pet waste stations, a bench, smoker's receptacle and an off-leash area for pets to roam. The dog parks are clearly marked from the parking lot and are open to both professional drivers and the traveling public.

Love's plans to open its next dog park at the new Sidney, Ohio, location on Dec. 13 and the Choctaw, Oklahoma, location on Dec. 15. Plans to build additional dog parks at the more than 470 existing Love's locations are dependent upon Customer feedback. To learn more about Love's, visit loves.com.
