6 Surprising Dog-Friendly Spots You Didn’t Know About
We’re always looking for new places to hang with our pooches. Here, six unexpected spots where your pup is totally welcome. How does a mimosa for you and a bowl of ice water for Fido sound? OK, we’re in.
Loews Miami Beach Hotel
Sandy fur and salty swims await your favorite pup at this beachfront high-rise. For $50 per stay (that’s on top of the Homo sapiens rate), your canine will receive a welcome package with a pet tag, food bowl and treat to start her sunny vacay on the right paw. Bonus: There’s even a dog-friendly room-service menu for those late-night steak cravings.
1601 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-604-1601 or loewshotels.com/miami-beach
Take your precious pup for an early-morning workout (or leisurely stroll) on Hobie Beach. The water is even shallow enough for some of the smallest breeds. Who’s up for a game of fetch?
Matthew Kuscher’s Lokal or the Spillover
While you feast on burgers and beer at Lokal, or seafood and cider at the Spillover, your pooch can be right there with you, munching on doggie treats like Bowser beer, Marmaduke’s meatloaf or Yeyo’s chicken and rice.
3190 Commodore Plaza, Coconut Grove; 305-442-3377 or lokalmiami.com
2911 Grand Ave., Coconut Grove; 305-456-5723 or spillovermiami.com
Shake Shack on Lincoln Road
This burger joint loves pups so much that they get their own special menu. We recommend the Pooch-ini, a sweet treat made with vanilla custard, peanut-butter sauce and ShackBurger biscuits.
1111 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach; 305-434-7787 or shakeshack.com
Downward with Your Dog
On the first Saturday of every month, enjoy a free sweat sesh for you and your pup. The full-body workout, nicknamed Downward with Your Dog, incorporates yoga, running and other outdoor activities to help create a deeper connection between owner and pet. The event takes place at different parks each month.
Amelia Earhart Bark Park
Gather your favorite four-legged friend and head to this Hialeah park for an all-day excursion. Start with a stroll through a fenced-off dog park, then gawk at the more than 500 acres of open green space before claiming a barbecue for some afternoon grilling.
401 E. 65th St., Hialeah; 305-685-8389 or miamidade.gov
