Dog lover? Check out any of these dog-friendly cities in the world in your travels, so that you are your furry companion can have a good time.

Chicago, Illinois, USA

Chicago has many dog-friendly places including 3 dog beaches where you can splash around and get some sun with your pooch. Check out Beggin’ for Brews Barkin’ for Bubbles, a charity event for beer and dog lovers, happening soon at the Lagunitas Brewing Company; have a beer and get a dog wash!

Portland, Oregon, USA

You can do almost anything in Portland with your dog, including dine! Visit any of their dog-friendly restaurants that offer special doggy treats. As with many restaurants, Tin Shed Garden Café on Alberta Street offers a separate dog menu.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada

You will rarely find a resident of Toronto that does not own a dog, so this city is definitely dog inclusive. Woofstock happens biannually in Toronto, which is the largest outdoor dog festival in North America with tens of thousands of dog visitors each time:

Paris, France

Having a dog does not restrict what you can do in the city of lights. Enjoy French cuisine at any of their dog-friendly restaurants (L’Astrance and Folks and Sparrows are recommended), or do some shopping at any of their dog-friendly boutiques. Many hotels are also dog-friendly (although some charge a fee).
