Dog Friendly Restaurants & Stores in Metro Phoenix
Can you make a day of it with your dog?
First, it all depends on the weather. Don’t even think about taking your dog out on a hot day but if it’s a beautiful Arizona day, then there are increasingly more places you can go with your little Fido.
If you are planning to take your dog out on the town, it’s always a good idea to doublecheck on the establishments’ policies. Also, bring along a leash, treats for good behavior and some poop bags just in case.
We’re constantly updating our list. Let us know if you find another great dog-friendly place. Or Facebook us!

There are some locations such as grocery stores and larger chain stores that are not going to let your pooch accompany you. And there are a lot of urban legends out there as far as which stores will allow you. Possibly the best course of action is to play it by ear: call ahead and ask or bring your well-behaved, leashed dog to the store and see what happens (it wouldn’t hurt for you to be charming as well). Just make sure to bring along Plan B if you get the bum’s rush.
