Top 7 Pet-Friendly

Top 7 Pet-Friendly Experiences

Everyone is welcome in Door County, including your furry four-legged friends. In fact, they might love the beautiful outdoor scenery more than you. With plenty of accommodations, outdoor-dining options, and lots of activities, there’s something for you and your pup to do during your trip. Here are the top 7 pet-friendly experiences around the area.

  1. Take in the great outdoors

There’s no shortage of outdoor space here. Put your dog’s nose to work on a walk through the park or along the side of a long country road. See how daring he or she is by hiking up the bluffs near the water’s edge.

  1. Make new friends

All of Door County’s parks are wonderful, but when it comes to your dog, nothing can beat the dog park. Run, play and sniff in our off-leash dog parks.

  1. Pamper your pooch

If you love to spoil your pet, you can find a lot of homemade treats, pet accessories and decorations in the boutiques around Door County. Stop into Pet Expressions/Door Co. General Store to cover all of your pet’s fashion needs and pick up something for yourself too.

  1. Grab a bite

No one likes al fresco dining like your dog does. Good thing there are numerous patios for you two to dine on so you can enjoy great food with the best company on earth.

  1. Go for a swim

While many beaches don’t allow dogs, there are plenty of areas in Door County where your dog can splash around. You can find dog beaches on Washington Island, in Rock Island State Park, Newport State Park, Whitefish Dunes State Park and Potawatomi State Park. Make sure to look for posted signs or ask a park ranger to show you.    

  1. Stay in style

Whether you prefer a cabin, hotel or resort, you can find one that accommodates your pet. Check with the hotel while you’re booking to make sure you can reserve a pet-friendly room.

  1. Spend the day at doggy day care

Can’t stay with your dog the whole time? Take them to one of the area’s dog kennels or day care facilities. Your dog can make new friends and play while you explore the rest of Door County.
