The Dog is a nice intermediate level creek run under sane boating conditions. It is exceptionally beautiful, with little evidence of human intrusion and only minimal pollution.
The Dog’s teeth consist of technical rapids, tricky converging currents, grabby holes, strainers, undercut rocks, and all kinds of private landowners who would prefer you not scout from the bank. The river may be tempting because of its easy proximity to Atlanta, but don’t tri?e with it. When it’s runnable at all, it’s pushy, technical in spots, and demanding.
