9 dog-friendly vacations for 2021 – dog-friendly vacation spots

If you missed the memo: we’re going on a trip again. Be blessed, vaccines !! But if you’re one of the 89,241,018 people who adopted puppies in their 40s, traveling probably seems a little more stressful than before. Having a dog is like having a child, right? You have to worry about walkers and kennels and baby dog cameras when you really want to get away from it all. (Real parents please don’t come for me in the comments.)

Or, you can just take your dog with you !? Yeah, alright, it’s not this easy. Not all hotels accept dogs and not all destinations are meaningful to them. (I to know you don’t want to take your pup on the New York subway with you.) But there are * plenty of places you and your dog can thrive beyond just a hike in the great outdoors. Yes, canine massages exist. Yep, that sounds amazing.

Please read this carefully curated list of the dog friendly vacations you need to treat yourself * both * ASAP. Don’t forget the dog sunscreen! PS Yes, all hotels offer welcome dogs, and some even have fancy perks.

Bend, Oregon, United States

This idyllic central Oregon location is so obsessed with dogs that it has (allegedly) the largest per capita dog population in the world, with 49% of residents owning a puppy. At least according to the official Bend tourism website. But whether or not they hold that title, Bend has over 40 dog-friendly restaurants and 13 off-leash areas your Fluffy Highness will love. Come on, they even edited this cute little shit video. Sold yet?



Key West, Florida, United States

You already know it as the birthplace of lime pie and the southernmost point in the continental United States, but it also has an off-leash beach and perhaps the best sunsets in the world. Yes, there is a puppy bar that is literally called Island Dogs Bar. Just shop for the matching Hawaiian shirts, stay by the marina, and lean into the ambiance of Margaritaville.



Paris, France

Tell me you never wanted to sit outside in a Parisian cafe wearing a #fashion cup and having a latte with your best friend at your feet. I won’t believe you. But beyond the really extra outdoor restaurants, the City of Love is very dog ​​friendly and they are welcome in most establishments. In fact, if you want to splurge on a fancy hotel, the Mandarin Oriental has a VIP package that includes, but is not limited to, a dog bed, treats, and a full-service menu for their sensitive bellies.



Napa, California, United States

Surprised to find this candle spot on the list? Well, even the locals know the best person to share a glass of pinot with is your dog. (I mean in the spirit!) Head to dog-friendly wineries like Raymond Vineyards, where your fluff can relax in their own dog suite (!) “With contests, treats and photo booths at galore.



Auckland, New Zealand

Take your dog wherever you go in Lorde’s hometown. Literally. From the many beaches to the beautiful botanical gardens and quayside reserves, they will never have to leave you. Highly recommended to stay at a scenic location on the beach for all #views all the time.



Bar Harbor, Maine, United States

This small island town right next to Acadia National Park is a must see if you love lobster and the outdoors. There are so many trails for your puppy AND so many outdoor restaurants on the water to relax after. If you’re in the mood for some truly iconic lobster rolls, stop by Beal’s Lobster Pier, an island staple. In fact, the Bar Harbor tourist office is begging you to bring your dog. There is no excuse!



The Grand Canyon, Arizona, United States

If that gram doesn’t convince you to take your dog to the Grand Canyon, then I don’t know what will. While you can’t take your four-legged friend to the bottom of the canyon, you can hike (and pause for some truly epic photos) along the outer rim. Once you’re done with all the natural wonders, relax in your dog-friendly glamping tent at Under Canvas Grand Canyon with all the s’mores your heart desires.



Los Cabos, Mexico

The southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula is known for its stunning resorts, sunsets, and landscapes. While you can be active with your pup and go visit the iconic Arch and many dog ​​friendly restaurants, I’m pushing for a day at the spa. If you stay at Las Ventanas al Paraiso, you and your puppy can enjoy massages. Ugh, I wanna cry, it’s so cute and luxurious.



Huntington Beach, California, United States

Fun Fact: Huntington Beach hosts the annual Corgi Beach Day. Remember those viral photos of a million and a corgis playing together a few years ago? Ofc you do. The glorious event returns from fall 2021 after a brief COVID hiatus. But there is more than the festival. Take your puppy to one of the nearly 100 dog-friendly beach restaurants and bars, like Wahoo’s (grab the fish tacos) and stay at the Kimpton Shorebreak Huntington Beach Resort for easy access to famous Huntington Dog Beach.
