6 Pet-Friendly Places to Enjoy in Charlotte

Charlotte is bustling with activities for everyone to enjoy. But what about for our furry friends?

Well, if you're looking for places to take your fur babies, we’ve got you (and your dog) covered! Here are 6 dog-friendly things to do in Charlotte.

(1) Grab a drink at one of Charlotte’s dog bars

Skiptown, Lucky Dog and NoDa Dog Bar are doggy daycare facilities that are not only a retreat for our furry friends, but also for us humans! These places offer unique beers, bath nights, and live music performances, too.

(2) Spoil your dog at the Canine Cafe

This dog-focused bakery and supply store has all kinds of delicious doggy treats that are handmade on site. Their daily selection includes petit fours, cannolis, tarts, Doggie Daiquiris, brownies, and the Pawty Cakes for those special occasions.

(3) Hang out on a dog-friendly patio

Most Charlotte breweries allow dogs on the patio, and here are some of our pup’s favorite spots:

  • Seoul Food Meat Co. – 1400 South Church Street

  • 1501 South Mint – 1501 S Mint Street

  • Angry Ale’s – 1518 Montford Drive

  • The Lodge – 7725 Colony Road

  • NoDa Brewing Company – 2921 N Tryon Street

  • VBGB Beer Hall & Garden – 920 Hamilton Street

Seoul Food has its own mini fenced-in dog run.

(4) Visit one of Charlotte’s six leash-free dog parks

“Dog zoomies” are one of the funniest things ever. And taking your dog to a dog park is a great way for them to run off any excess energy and have some fun.

Frazier Park is a favorite for those near Uptown, but McAlpine Creek Community Park, William R. Davie District Park, Ramsey Creek Park, Reedy Creek Park, and Shuffletown Park are also great places to take your pup. And they’re all open seven days a week until sunset!

(5) Cheer on the Charlotte Knights at Bark in the Ballpark

Bark in the Ballpark is a specially designated Knights game where spectators can bring their dogs to join in on the fun. The furry fans get the royal treatment all game long, starting with a pet-themed giveaway, a Doggie Vendor Showcase, and in-game activities and contests.

(6) Go paddleboarding with your pup

Head to the U.S. National Whitewater Center for an adventure with your furry friends. Dogs are allowed on the hiking trails (on-leash), restaurant patios, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards. If you’re looking for an out-of-town adventure, Happy Tails Tours offers several dog-friendly tours like kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding.

If you're thinking of living in Charlotte with your dogs, you'll surely have a blast in these places. And you also won't have any problems finding an affordable home because we at Better Path Homes are dedicated to making high quality, affordable housing in the Charlotte market.
