Washington Dog City

As one of the most dog friendly cities in the United States, Washington DC makes taking pooch on vacation with you easier than practically anywhere else. Even a good number of the city's most popular attractions allow dogs on site, which means you won't have to leave her or him with a sitter or back at the hotel room while you browse the town.

If you live around the Washington area you won’t need to travel far to enjoy a little “staycation” or “daycation” with your four legged best friend. With Washington D.C. coming in at number five in a recent list of dog-friendly cities compiled by the NerdWallet.com, there are plenty of things to do right in the playland of the nation’s capital.

First of all, Washington D.C. is a great city for dog lovers because it’s extremely walkable, has loads of dog friendly parks and surprisingly, welcomes leashed canine family members at several of the city’s famous tourist attractions. Dog lovers can enjoy the iconic sights with faithful canines in tow.
