  • This is a list of some of our favorite Austin-area Dog Friendly Public Places. Please give them your business and mention to their managers that one of the reasons you're there is because they are dog friendly. Company policies toward dogs change frequently and without notice, so you might want to check first before bringing your canine friend along.

    The list is NO WAY extensive. Here are a couple of links that list a whole lot more places you can take your canine friend:

    • Doggies Welcome
    • Austin, Texas Dog Friendly City Guide:  this is a national site which features pages for the top 10 dog-friendly cities in the U.S. and Canada (the Austin area is ranked 5th).
    • DogPlaces.com: a list of locations and services in the Austin, Texas area.
    • Austin, Texas Dog-Friendly City Guide: this is a national site which features pages for the top 10 dog-friendly cities in the U.S. and Canada (the Austin area is ranked 5th).
    • Sonic (all)
           Well-behaved dogs on-leash are welcome on their patio. The staff are always friendly and they usually bring your dog a milkbone. You can't beat that!
    • Lowe's (Kyle, Shoal Creek/Anderson Ln., Sunset Valley, & The Shops at the Galleria, Bee Cave)
            Unlike other huge, orange home improvement stores (that will remain unnamed), well-behaved dogs on-leash are welcome in Lowe's. Give them your business!
    • Office Depot (Sunset Valley)
            This is the only office supply store we've found that allows your dog to accompany you. Please, only well-behaved dogs on-leash. We don't want them to have to change their progressive policy and return to the dark ages like another of the large office supply chains recently did.
