Score bonus points from your girl for packing up a picnic and blanket to enjoy a day in the park.
Tip: Most of the parks have water fountains for your pet but if you want to save your car’s interior, be sure to also bring a towel or blanket to protect your backseats.
If you’re thinking of a beach picnic, the only beach that you can bring dogs to at this point is Hobie Beach on Key Biscayne. And although dogs aren’t allowed in the sandy part of most other beaches, South Beach certainly has more than enough accommodations to bring your precious companion along.
There are plenty of pet friendly restaurants but bring your dog’s ID because they only allow dogs to drink if they’re of legal age. Pamper your pooch and check out some of our favorite pet-friendly restaurants below:
