Summer is the perfect time to hit the road and explore new sites with your pup. Pet-friendly cities like Austin, Texas and Portland, Oregon make it easy to fill your day hiking through scenic parks and grabbing a bite at outdoor cafes. But if you're looking for something a little more unique, here are a few activities you don't want to miss.
At The Dog Bark Park Inn
—which is located approximately midway between Yellowstone & Glacier National Parks—sleeping in the doghouse is a good thing. Meet the world's largest beagle: a standalone bed-and-breakfast that comfortably houses four humans and several canines. Breakfast is served in-the-dog, and there's a deck for hanging out during the evening hours. Be sure to check out the owners' chainsaw art in the gift shop; you might find a sculpture in your pup's likeness to take home with you.
In the Windy City, where dogs can roam lakefront beaches and kick back at posh hotels
, there's no shortage of sights to take in. But the best view by far is from the water. Step aboard Mercury's Canine Cruise
, which welcomes owners and well-behaved pups for 90-minute tours every Sunday in the summer. Learn about Chicago's rich history and architectural highlights while your pet curls up beside you.
We all know that dogs love a good game of fetch, but did you know they could attend a MLB game
with you? Stadiums across the country open their gates to four-legged fans during dog-friendly baseball games. Watch the action from the bleachers and share a hot dog with your best friend... This definitely ranks on the Bucket List of summer activities. Here's a full schedule of 2017 dog-friendly MLB games.
