Top 5 Dog-Friendliest Cities in the US and Why
Listed here are 5 of the dog-friendliest cities in the US.
San Francisco, CA
Topping our list is San Francisco, due to the high number of amenities it boasts for dogs. San Francisco has the 7th highest number of dog parks per 100,000 people in the United States and is also highly walkable. Perhaps the biggest reason this city is on this list, though, is because restaurant owners love dogs. Nearly 200 restaurants in the city are dog-friendly. With a climate that never gets too hot or too cold, your dog would love to live in the bay area.
In Denver, it seems like everywhere you go someone has brought a dog (which obviously isn’t a bad thing!). Nearly every brewery in the mile-high city is dog-friendly, and many even have their own dog parks. In addition to breweries, the city is home to a high number of dog friendly restaurants, coffee shops, and hotels.
Las Vegas, NV
When most people think of sin city they don’t think about Las Vegas’ dog-friendliness. However, Las Vegas is high on this list for multiple reasons. For one, Las Vegas has the fifth highest number of dog parks per capita in the United States. Second, many hotels and casinos cater to the needs of dogs. Whether your dog is looking for a special dinner, spa treatment, gaming experience, limousine ride, or magic show there are plenty of pet-friendly options!
San Diego, CA
Even though San Francisco was already mentioned, San Diego shouldn’t be left out. San Diego has the highest number of dog-friendly restaurants, with nearly 10 dog-friendly shopping areas as well. If you can’t stand the thought of leaving home without your pup, consider this west coast city.
If your dog is a Siberian Husky or other winter-loving breed, consider the windy city. Chicago ranks fifth highest in the nation for dog-friendly dining and shopping and is also highly walkable. If your dog can get past the cold, he or she will love the amenities that Chicago has to offer!
The cities listed here are ranked the top dog-friendliest cities due to their ability to provide dogs with what they love: walking, companionship with their humans, and a general acceptance from city residents. After all, what more could a dog ask for?
