Phoenix is a haven for pet parents. And these top spots are where pet parents can go to be surrounded by fellow dog lovers and their fur babies. Phoenix’s warm weather year round means you can spend time with Fido alfresco on the patios on many different establishments. From two different breweries to one of the best dog parks in the country, check out these dog-friendly places.

Short Leash

Short Leash Hotdogs started as a food truck back in 2010 and since then the business has blossomed into two standalone locations and three food trucks. And Short Leash’s devotion to dogs is undeniable. When Phoenix residents send Short Leash a photo of their dogs, Short Leash will create a signature, unique hot dog named after your pooch.

Pro tip: If you visit Short Leash when your dog is featured, you get a free hot dog. On the back hallway of Short Leash’s Roosevelt location in downtown Phoenix, you can find photos of featured dogs.

O.H.S.O Brewery and Distillery

All three locations of craft brewery O.H.S.O. in the Valley (with one coming soon in Gilbert) welcome dogs. Pet parents can enjoy complimentary dog biscuits and are welcome to bring their dogs as they down craft beers and signature heavy fare like burgers and pork wings on the outdoor patios here. You’re likely to spot dogs cozied up next to their owners on bar stools.

Uncle Bear’s Brewery & Grill

The Valley’s other top dog-friendly brewery? Uncle Bear’s Brewery & Grill. Uncle Bear is named after the owner’s black lab mix who passed over a decade ago. Just like Short Leash, Uncle Bear’s proudly displays its regulars’ dogs on the wall of its locations. Dogs are welcome on the patio. Customers can enjoy craft beers and other bar food like queso, steak cut cheddar fries and burgers on the patio.

Smelly Dog

Since 2005, Smelly Dog in West Phoenix offers full-service washing, grooming and daycare for Valley pets. Smelly Dog owner Jackie Brenda owns two Boston Terriers and says she can show her love of all dogs with her store. Brenda also provides complimentary nutritional consultations where pet parents can learn more about their individual dog’s food, treats and exercise needs. Smelly Dog also sells baked goods and other pet products like leashes, collars and shampoos.

Cosmo Dog Park

Gilbert in South Phoenix is home to one of the best dog parks in the entire country: Cosmo Dog Park. Highlights include one large “dog beach” complete with a lake featuring a dock where dogs can jump off, separate areas for timid and more active dogs, and roughly four-acres of fenced-in space where dogs can roam free. Dog owners can mingle with other dog owners here.
