Dog-Friendly Cities

Friday, January 06, 2017 05:16:34 PM America/Los_Angeles

For dog owners, it's a no-brainer that dogs are our best friends – but for landlords and city planners, that logic isn't always so obvious! Any dog owner knows the stress of looking for a new apartment, or a place to go out to eat and constantly being turned down because the establishment isn't dog-friendly. But what if you visited or moved to a city where that was less of an issue – what if your whole city was dog friendly? This sounds like a dream come true to us, so for this blog, we'll list a few of the most dog-friendly cities in America.

Portland, Oregon


It probably comes as no surprise that this northwestern, forward-thinking oasis is a haven for dog lovers, but you may be shocked by the statistics. Portland is home to more than 33 dog parks in the city's 145 square miles! It's also home to the Lucky Labrador Brewing Company, a dog-friendly brewpub crawling with canines and events that benefit charitable causes for dogs. On that note, Portland is one of only a few cities in the world where you're free to take your dog into a pub.

Seattle, Washington


Sister city to Portland, Seattle is equally dog-friendly in its mindset. In fact, there are more dogs in Seattle than children! The city allows dogs on all forms of city public transportation, and you'll even find an indoor dog park for when you need to take a walk but stay out of the rain.

Austin, Texas


For those in search of a drier climate, Austin is the perfect place. Most restaurants in the city are happy to welcome dogs on their patio, and you'll find no shortage of dog-friendly activities in the city. If you're looking for some good stretches try Austin Doga – a dog-friendly yoga studio – or you can take your pup to Red Bud Isle, the city's dog-only swimming pool!
