They say dogs are man’s best friend, and you’d hate to leave your best friend at home while you’re out enjoying the city! Here are a few great places to take your dog in Detroit.
Detroit Dog Park
Detroit Dog Park recently opened up the first official dog park in town, adjacent to Roosevelt Park (corner of 17th and Rose Streets) in Corktown. In addition to hosting doggy hangouts at their permanent home, Detroit Dog Park hosts occasional dog parties at the old Tiger Stadium site. Check their Facebook page for upcoming dates and rules.
Woodbridge Pub (5169 Trumbull Street) offers a great patio for dining, drinking and people watching. It can get a bit crowded on summer days, but dogs can grab a shady spot under one of the big picnic tables and enjoy the great outdoors.
Midtown Dog Park
The newest dog spot in town is the Midtown Dog Park, which opened June 20 at the corner of Cass Avenue and Canfield Street in the heart of Midtown. It’s a great spot to take your dog to play, and then you can walk up the block for a drink at…
The Bronx Bar
Midtown’s Bronx Bar (4476 Second Avenue) is a perfect neighborhood bar and is dog-friendly. In the summer, you’ll see dogs sitting on and next to the patio, and even a few well-behaved pooches inside the bar during colder months. The burger, pickle soup and veggie sandwich are top-notch.
At St. CeCe’s Pub (1426 Bagley Avenue) in Corktown, you’ll find a cozy spot with an inventive menu of upscale snacks. There’s a little something for everyone here with a huge bar, stand-up bar tables and a big dining room with a stone fireplace. And word on the street is quite a few dogs have been spotted hanging out.
Canine to Five Detroit
As much as you love to take your dog out and about with you, sometimes dogs are just not allowed. For those occasions, you’ll be glad to have Canine to Five (3443 Cass Avenue) in town. This full-service facility offers boarding, grooming and doggie daycare for dogs of all sizes.
