If you’re like me, you want to do EVERYTHING with your pup. But sometimes it’s hard to find a place that welcomes both you and your dog. What to do when society shuns your dog love? Turn to a place that understands how important it is to have ALL of your loved ones with you, whether dining out, staying in a hotel, or going for a quick coffee.

Here are 27 establishments that will cater to your dog.

1. Starbucks

One of the items on the Starbucks secret menu, the Puppuccino is a small cup filled with whipped cream for your pup,  a.k.a. all things good in this world. Next time you get that grande non-fat chai latte, treat your pup to the puppuccino! Editor’s note: WebMD lists ice cream and dairy as a food your dog shouldn’t eat. Just like humans, some dogs get upset stomachs from eating dairy so if you have a pup with a sensitive tum, might want to stay clear of this one!

2. Rock & Brews

This American comfort food restaurant not only has a dog-friendly patio, but they have a doggie menu and will bring water in a bowl for your pup upon request (on the house). The perfect place to dine and rock out with your pup.

3. Shake Shack

Would you like a Pooch-ini to go with those fries? Shake Shack offers delicious desserts custom made for your pup. The Pooch-ini is composed of dog biscuits, peanut butter sauce, and a vanilla custard. You can also order a Bag O’Bones, which is a bag of five ShackBurger dog biscuits made by Bocce’s Bakery.

4. Johnny Rockets

At select Johnny Rocket locations, such as the Chino Hills, CA branch, a specialized menu is offered for our four legged friends. Items include doggie hamburgers, lickety split ice cream, and even pupcakes (nomz). Dogs are welcome at all locations and are provided with fresh water upon request.

5. Sprinkles Cupcakes 

Not only does this chain have Cupcake ATM’s (satisfying your cupcake needs 24/7), but it also offers Doggie Cupcakes. These cupcakes are sugar-free and topped with a yogurt frosting.

 6. In-N-Out 

The Flying Dutchman, an item on the secret menu, simply contains two beef patties and two slices of cheese. While it is not officially a dog item, per se, rumor has it that it was created for people to feed their dogs at one of the original In-N-Out locations.

7. Le Pain Quotidienne

Grab a pastry, take a seat outside on the heated porch, and relax with your pooch. This restaurant is not only dog-friendly, but some of the outdoor tables at select location have jars of dog treats, and if not, dog treats are offered by the staff. Talk about pampered!

13. Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons might be known for their variety of Timbits, but few people know that Tim Hortons offers plain Timbits for dogs. Just make sure to ask for a pet-friendly Timbit so they know not to put sugar on it. Limit one per canine customer!

14. Southwest Air

Though most airlines will allow customers to bring a pet carrier on board for a fee, Southwest has a 2-for-1 rate. Meaning if you have two small dogs that can fit comfortably in one carrier, then you will only be charged for the carrier, and not per pet.

15. Westin Hotel

The Westin will pamper you pup as much as it would a person, offering robes, massages, and custom cuisine to the dog in your entourage. After all, luxury is not limited to those who walk upright. The concierge will even inform you of the dog-friendly activities in the local area.

16. Dairy Queen

This ice cream eatery has a royal secret. The Pup Cup! Ask your cashier for a Pup Cup the next time you’re at Dairy Queen with your dog and you’ll receive a free small-serving of vanilla soft serve ice cream. Bow (wow) to the Queen! **9-1-15 UPDATE** Thanks to a message from Kevin M. we’ve learned that while some DQ’s give free ice cream, it is not a part of their corporate policy and some do charge for the Pup Cup.

17. Virgin Atlantic

Virgin Atlantic offers a special heated and air-conditioned compartment – just like the cabin – for your furry flyers. Hoomans even earn Flying Club miles for flights logged by your pup. See the Virgin Atlantic Flying Paws scheme to sign up. Virgin Atlantic does have a set limit on the number of dogs allowed onboard, so you guessed it, call ahead!

18. Four Seasons Hotel

The epitome of exclusive, Four Seasons will only allow pooches under 15lbs. But if your dog does stay at the Four Seasons, then some locations will treat your dog to all the services you will be treated to, including in-room spa services. The hotel will also accommodate your dog with walking services and special treats. Many Four Seasons also have a veterinarian on call to ensure your dog’s stay is as healthy as it is harmonious.

19. Culver’s

Culver’s may be known for their “made-daily Fresh Frozen Custard,” but we know them for their welcoming attitudes to our dogs. Culver’s has a tradition of offering milk bones to dogs coming through the drive thru. If you drive thru the right location, then your dog will get their milk bone in a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
