Plenty of cities understand how important it is to cater to dog-owners, and welcome dogs in restaurants and all around public areas. Here are some of the most dog-friendly cities to visit.

Keswick, England

If you’re visiting the UK and you’re looking for a place to bring your pup for a fun day, the Keswick district is full of swimmable lake areas and mountains and trails to climb. The area is full of dog lovers, and the nearby pubs even often have treats for them behind the bar.

Tel Aviv, Israel

Tel Aviv has the highest ratio of dogs to people in the world, and there are tons of dog parks and dog-friendly beaches in the city. Dogs can be seen sitting with their owners at just about every cafe and bar as well as on the buses and trains. There are also plenty of places to stay that can accommodate your furry friend, just be sure to double-check before booking.

Toronto, Canada

Toronto is super accommodating to man’s best friend, especially in summer. There are dozens of dog parks and a dog beach in the city where your pup can have a blast. Many restaurants even open their doors, or at least their outdoor seating, to dogs happily. Check out the Hazelton Hotel to give your little buddy as top-shelf a hotel experience as you’d expect for yourself.
