Treasure Coast Cruises is a FUN Dog Friendly Activity in Vero Beach!Treasure Coast Cruises
We've taken this tour twice now and it's worth every penny. Captain Kirby is a great tour guide and very knowledgeable about the area. You'll see waterfront homes, beautiful nature settings, and most fun of all - the dolphins! Our dogs were welcome with open arms. They enjoyed the breeze and loved watching the dolphins and birds. Our group consisted of people from 30-something-years old to 80-years old, and everyone had a great time. You're welcome to bring your own beverages - we chose champagne - with plastic glasses. Definitely a must-do when visiting Vero!

Huc-A-Poos is Dog Friendly!Huc-A-Poos Bites and Booze
Dogs are welcome both outside and inside the bar area that's screened in, making it almost "indoor-like." The staff is friendly and the pizzas are huge. This is a fun place to bring your dog!

Relaxing Fun with Fido at Rising Silo BreweryRising Silo Brewery
We spent the afternoon and tried a beer flight along with their soft pretzel. They have a huge outdoor space with plenty of room for people and pups to spread out, and to walk around with your dog. Staff was friendly and welcoming. We'll be back!
Visit Annually - We Love OHIOlde Harbour Inn
We stay here with our pooch every Christmas. They provide a doggie bag at check-in filled items like locally-made dog treats, toys, waste bags, and a listing of dog-friendly activities and restaurants. The dog-friendly rooms are located on basement level but your view is of the riverfront which is pretty. The rooms also have kitchenettes complete with refrigerators. Dogs cannot be in the lobby/dining area but you are welcome to leave your pup in your room unattended if you need to go somewhere without him. They offer special "do not disturb" door signs so that staff know you are not there but your dog is inside. There is a large grass area that is street-level for your dog to do his business. For us humans, we love the wine & cheese hour each evening and the ice cream treats they leave in your freezer at turn-down service. Breakfast is an additional fee and buffet-style. The only thing that could be a negative is that the walls seem a little thin and you can sometimes hear dogs in other rooms & footsteps from above floor. If you are a light sleeper, or if your pup gets riled up from hearing other dogs barking, this may not be the best option. Otherwise, they are super dog-friendly and the location is perfect.
Very Fun Activity with FidoCaptain Mike's Dolphin Tours
We all had a great time on this dolphin tour and our pup enjoyed the fresh sea air. I would suggest arriving early for boarding so that you can choose the perfect place to sit if you have a pup with you.
Redwood Valley Railway is Dog Friendly!Redwood Valley Railway (Tilden Steam Train)
Located about 20 minutes from San Francisco, this was a fun stop with our small dog. When we took the ride in August 2021, it cost about $3.50 per person and the ride lasted about 15 minutes doing a loop through the redwood trees and one tunnel. The staff were all very friendly to us and our dog.
Seven Magic Mountains is Dog FriendlySeven Magic Mountains
A beautiful, roadside artwork attraction in the middle of the dessert. Great photo opportunities with your dog!

We thought this would be a quick stop just to stretch our legs, and we ended up being here for a couple hours! Dogs are welcome throughout the park including the shops, inside the saloon, and on the train ride. It was really fun and the staff could not have been nicer to us and our pup. There is also a restaurant with outdoor seating if you want to have a meal with Fido.
Dog Friendly Bravo FarmsBravo Farms
Not only is there an enclosed dog relief area, but dogs are also welcome inside the shop with you!
Dog Friendly Paris Las VegasParis Las Vegas
We spent two nights here and enjoyed our stay. Our pup received treats at check-in and the staff were friendly to us and our dog. Just like other hotels on the strip in Las Vegas, Paris LV is huge and it will take several minutes to get from your room to the pet relief area outside. We had no trouble finding the relief area after a quick phone call with the concierge for directions. Our room was clean and decorated nicely. Although dogs are not permitted on the casino floor, you can walk your pup through on what looks like the streets of Paris, along the eateries and shops. We would stay here again!
J. Christopher's in Savannah - Truly a Dog Friendly RestaurantJ. Christopher's
J. Christopher's loves dogs! We have been here several times and our pups always receive a bowl of water and milkbones. We have two small dogs so we order them one Puppy Chow from the dog menu to share; it's more than enough for each of them and they split it up into two bowls for them. We've never had lunch here but the breakfast is delicious - some of the best French toast I've ever had.
Captain Derek's Dolphin Adventure - A Fun, Dog Friendly Tour!Captain Derek's Dolphin Adventure
This was actually our third time taking our pups on Captain Derek's Dolphin Adventure tour. We have experienced both the daytime and the sunset cruise and have a great time each time we go! Our pups were scared at first because the boat is loud at times, but then enjoyed the breeze and people watching. We have seen dolphins every time but they have a policy in which they will give you another tour if don't see dolphins. Small dogs can be held on your lap or bench with you, and there is room for bigger pups, too, as they make sure not to overpack boats. Although the back of the boats are shaded, bring some water for your dog because it does get warm when your side of the boat is in the sun. And be sure to bring yourself some libations as well! It's fun to toast the beautiful sunsets on the Sunset Cruise.
Dog Friendly Cafe M in Savannah, GACafe M
Located above River Street in the historic district, this beautiful little French bistro is great place to relax with your pup. Some of the tables are shaded by either umbrellas or the big oak trees. The breakfast sandwiches, coffee, and champagne cocktails are great and our dogs enjoyed people watching and getting bites of a fresh croissant. You can also purchase a lock here for the "love lock bridge" located right next to the restaurant.
Oliver Bentleys Historic Dog Walk TourOliver Bentleys Historic Dog Walk Tour
Our pups had a pawsome time sniffing around historic Savannah, and we had a great time learning the history of the city and some of its squares. We've been on many tours in Savannah yet we still learned things we never heard before on this walking tour. It's also nice to have a tour guide who understands that having a dog along on a tour means stopping a lot to sniff and barking greetings at others. Eric and his dog, Abby, were great hosts and guides. And our pups appreciated the complimentary bag of treats after their long walk.
McDonough's is a Favorite Locals PubMcdonough's Restaurant & Lounge
Our pups love hanging out and people watching at this no-frills locals bar in the middle of the historic district. They have friendly staff, awesome fried shrimp and the best bloody marys in town!
Driftaway Cafe is a Pup Favorite!Driftaway Cafe
We always make a stop at Driftaway Cafe for dinner with the pups when visiting Savannah. The friendly staff loves dogs and they are welcome on the front and back patios - both of which are covered for shade - or the cute grotto area. The food is fantastic and some of the best we've had in Savannah. Try their fresh fish dishes, salmon BLT, and fresh salads. You can't go wrong with one of their desserts, too.
Clary's Cafe Loves Fido!Clary's Cafe
We eat here with our pups several times a year when we visit Savannah. The friendly staff love dogs and bring them water and treats. The restaurant is popular for it's mention in the infamous "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" book, is a local go-to spot, and their homemade shrimp salad is amazing.
Trans-Allegheny Lunatic AsylumTrans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum
We took our two 12-pound dogs on the 90-minute history tour with guide, Pip (who was very knowledgeable), and it was great. The property is HUGE and there is a lot to see and learn about - we even contemplated staying longer to take one of their other tours when we were finished with the history one. The tour went through a few different buildings and outside areas so it was good for the pups to have an outdoor break. There are lots of dark spaces and dark, narrow stairwells so be sure your dog would be OK in that kind of environment. They had fun sniffing all around and we enjoyed the unique experience.
Fun Weekend at Four Paws Kingdom CampgroundFour Paws Kingdom Campground
Dog heaven! We spent the weekend with our two small pups in the Stella cabin. I'm not a huge fan of camping but this cabin made it feel more like "glamping" for me - I was really impressed with how nice it was. The cabin was well maintained and very clean with an equipped kitchen area, bathroom with shower, and TVs (although no time to watch!). We just needed to bring our own bedding and linens. It was nice having a covered porch and fenced-in yard for the pups to run around. We noticed the other cabins and a lot of the RV sites also had their own fenced yards. Plus, there are several dog parks along with two big ponds for dogs to splash around. Our pups were definitely wiped out from all the playing and exploring! The staff were super friendly and helpful throughout our stay, and you can always see them buzzing around on their golf carts. The camp store was cute with a "Bark Bar" area filled with a variety of dog treats. Human items, s'mores packs, camping supplies, firewood, and souvenirs are also available. And even though the campground is filled with dogs, it was super quiet at night - we're guessing all the dogs were tired from playing all day! We will definitely be back.
Fun times!Tails in Town
This is a big local event with lots of vendors, demonstrations & education throughout the day and onsite adoptions! Our Charley had so much fun the past few years attending this!
Our dogs love Lured Market & Grill!Lured Market & Grill
Our dogs love Lured Market & Grill! Located across the street from Lake Lure, they offer several picnic tables with umbrellas and "yard" games like giant Jenga, ladder ball, and cornhole. The picnic tables have leash clips and the market sells "pupsicles" which are a frozen treat (kind of like sherbert) in a small plastic cup, as well as locally made dog treats. Our pups shared a hot dog from the grill menu. Take note that the tables are located on pavement, not grass.
The staff are very friendly!
Friendly Staff & Yummy FoodHenDough Chicken & Donuts
HenDough is a must-try while in Hendersonville! There are lots of outdoor tables, including several in the grass. Their food and donuts are made fresh daily. If it's raining, there are a few tables on the covered porch.

Fun Fall Fun with Fido!Layman Family Farms
We had a fun afternoon on the farm. Dogs are welcome throughout the huge property including the corn maze. Our Charley checked out the farm animals (from a distance), helped us pick out a pumpkin, shared an apple blossom, and help lead us to the exit of the corn maze!
Great Spot to Chill and Right Off the GreenwayHang 10 Hawaiian Ice & Cream
Lots of outdoor tables to enjoy your ice or soft serve dole whip with your pooch. They also had several water bowls outside for the dogs. Hang 10 is located just a few steps off the Roanoke Greenway in the Wasena neighborhood. A great spot to stop during your walk or bike ride.
Friendly Staff, Good LocationBest Western Hendersonville Inn
We have stayed here multiple times with our pup. The dog-friendly rooms are located on the ground level giving you easy access to the grassy areas behind the building. Rooms are always clean and the staff are super friendly. Their free hot breakfast buffet is also really good (grab a piece of bacon to-go to share with Fido). They are located less than 3 miles from the historic downtown area that offers several dog-friendly shops and restaurants, and just a few miles from the "apple country" area of Hendersonville (including Grandad's Apples which is dog-friendly).
Good Wine, Friendly Service, Very Dog FriendlyBlue Ridge Vineyard
Covered and outside seating is dog friendly so you can visit no matter the weather during their season. Their property is HUGE with tons of space to walk and offers a variety of different seating areas with beautiful views. They sometimes have live music so check their website or social media pages for current schedule. Bring a picnic (and treats for your Fido)! Any tips the staff receives are donated to a local animal rescue.
Fun Tourist Attraction!Dinosaur Kingdom II
We only stopped to take some photos of our pup with the weird figures outside of the attraction. The owner was very friendly and let us know it was dog friendly. Our pup is a little guy at only 10 lbs and was not scared of any of the noises, but I can see how some dogs could be. The tour starts in an "old town" and then proceeds on a trail through the woods. It was definitely a weird experience but we had a lot of fun!
Charley Gives It 5 BonesStarlite Drive-In Theater
We love drive-in movie theaters and love them even more when we can bring our pup along! Great hot dogs, snacks and kind, friendly staff make this one even better. Charley Approved!
Great ExperienceBeliveau Farm Winery
We visited with our pup in May and can't say enough good things about the staff and wine at Beliveau! They even have dog treats for furry visitors. The property is beautiful with tons of space for seating and to walk around. Although they have a lot of seating in different areas (patio, grass, gazebos, etc), we opted to bring our own blanket and have a picnic in the grass with our dog. You can't bring your own food, but they have a small menu with different items for purchase. If someone in your party doesn't like wine, they also make their own beer (and it's all gluten-free). We will definitely be back!
Good Food and Large PatioRockys Hot Chicken Shack- South
We like it here because the food is great and the outdoor patio area is pretty big and covered to keep you and Fido out of the sun or rain. Friendly service!
Local HangoutLake Lure Riverside Tiki Bar & Grille
This is definitely a local hangout but we had a lot of fun. The server brought out water and bacon for our pup. The drinks were great and the bar was good. It's kind of a dive bar which we love and right next to the river. Seating is covered and heated in cooler months, fans in the summer.
Great Local BrewerySouthern Appalachian Brewery
This brewery is super dog friendly with a huge jar of dog cookies always on the bar and water dishes around.

Definitely try their smoother brandy martini with jalapeno olives!
Dogs are welcome at tables along the sidewalk or inside!
