In a national ranking of fastest-emerging dog-friendly cities, Alexandria took third place.

The ranking looks both at where dog-owners are registered on the dog boarding and walking site Rover and where there are the most page views of pet-friendly single-family home rental listings on real estate marketplace site Zillow.

The city was beaten by Baltimore, Maryland and Antioch, Tennessee.

It’s not the first time the city has gotten praise for it’s dog care: in January it was listed among 70 best cities for dog care.
