It’s Time to Bring Your Pup to D.C. Pet-friendly activities abound in our nation’s capital, so bring Fido along for the ride.


Who says politics and pets don’t mix? Washington, D.C., is full of dog-friendly zones so you can bring your best friend on your next mini-vacation.

Feel free to bring Fido to federal land. Part of the National Park Service, Rock Creek Park is a 1,754 acre oasis in the heart of D.C., with miles of paved and connecting trails to explore. Within Rock Creek, the cascading fountain and reflecting pool of Meridian Hill Park is also open to leashed dogs.

The National Mall is also pet-friendly and open for strolls at any hour of the day. Best of all, you can pay a visit to the statue of Fala, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s little Scottish terrier.

Spring is in full bloom around the Tidal Basin, so you can take in the natural beauty, get a glimpse of attractions like the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and the Washington Monument, and spend quality time with your pup.

With plenty of patio dining and beautiful spring air, it’s always yappy hour in D.C. Wet Dog Tavern was literally inspired by a beloved golden retriever, and is open for reservations to grab a drink, snacks and relaxed outdoor ambiance.

The Midlands beer garden has a wide-open garden area, perfect for a stein of Belgian ale with a giant soft pretzel or nachos on the side.

Dascha Beer Garden has two locations in Shaw and Navy Yard, serving a huge variety of craft beers, cocktails and German-inspired cuisine. The setting is just right for you to enjoy an afternoon or evening with your two- and four-legged friends.

Don’t forget that Club Quarters Hotel, Washington DC, White House welcomes dogs less than 50 pounds, fee-free, so plan your stay and start exploring.
