Pet-Friendly areas in Bellingham, WA

Ask any pet owner why they love their dog or cat, and you’ll receive a variety of different answers. Some folks will tell you that their pets are great company. Others may say that their pets keep them active. If you asked those same pet owners if they could live without their pets, all of their responses would be the same: “No way!”

Pet-Friendly Restaurant & Shops

Grabbing dinner or drinks with friends and family can be difficult for dog owners. You have to watch the clock in case your night out interferes with walk time. Or maybe your pet doesn’t do well if you stray from your normal schedule. The good news is that many Bellingham restaurants and shops welcome dogs. So you can feel free to bring your pooch along to these great places!

In addition to offering a fine selection of beer, wine and ciders, Paws also hosts a variety of dog-related events, offers doggy daycare services, and partners with area dog rescues for adoptions. 

When it’s time to enjoy a delicious lunch or dinners, you’ll find lots of great dog-friendly options. The outdoor seating section of the Aslan Brewing Company lets your pooch hang out while you feast on bison burgers, pulled pork sandwiches and other dishes from its diverse menu. If you enjoy Mexican fare, Los Cantaritos lets you authentic cuisine in a dog-friendly environment. Just want a simple cup of coffee and a snack? Stop by Woods Coffee for specials brews and tasty pastries. 

In addition to the above restaurants (and many others), you’ll also find lots of local shops like Village Books that allow dogs on the premises. 

Local Pet Stores and Veterinary Services

Dogs love to play. Cats prefer to snuggle on the couch. They both love dinner time! If you need to pick up kibble, kitty litter, toys or accessories, you’ll be happy to know that there are lots of fine pet shops in the area. Both Mud Bay pet store and Bellingham Pet Supplies and Aquatics are both less than ten minutes away by car.

You and your dog can enjoy these neighborhood favorites and other great dog parks throughout the year! 

Pet-Friendly Hotels

And boarding a pet is expensive and sometimes problematic for the pet itself. Luckily, Bellingham is home to multiple pet-friendly hotels. Now your out-of-state friends and family can visit you - and bring their pets along with them!
