Dog-Friendly USA: Portland, Oregon

So, it’s finally the weekend, and you and your pup have been cooped up in the house all week. It’s time to put the work aside and play! But what to do? You can go grab drinks with friends, catch a movie, or take a stroll in the park, but we all know that bringing your pup along makes everything infinitely better.

No need to worry! We’ve compiled a list of dog-friendly places around the country- from hotels to restaurants, from parks to salons. We’ll cover everything each city has to offer our fluffy best friends one city at a time. To kick off this series, we wanted to start with the city that leads the nation in dog parks per square mile… duh!

We’re heading to the west coast! Portland, Oregon boasts 33 dog parks within city limits. That, in addition to the plethora of dog-friendly bars, restaurants, hotels, and parks, Portland has a reputation for being one of the most popular cities in the United States for dog owners and their pups. Let’s explore the great northwest, shall we?

Hotel Monaco

Part of the Kimpton hotel family, Hotel Monaco welcomes dogs, regardless of size, weight, or breed at no extra cost. Bring your Frenchies, Great Danes, and Labs- no problem!


The Knock Back

Located in Alberta Arts District, The Knock Back’s dog-friendly patio can be enjoyed all year long with its cozy fire pit. While you’re munching on some good food, pack your pup some ZenPup Goodies to enjoy, too!



Por Que No

Portland’s iconic healthy Mexican restaurant has both a pet-friendly sidewalk patio and an enclosed patio, perfect for those rainy winter days. It tends to be crowded, so we recommend using some of ZenPup’s Happy in your pup’s bowl before heading on over for some of the (in our opinion) best Mexican food in the city.



Basecamp Brewing

Made for an outdoorsy crowd, Basecamp Brewery boasts a huge range of regular and seasonal beers, as well as two food carts with delicious menus. Cozy up to the fire pits on the patio and settle in - it’s going to be a fun time!



International Rose Test Garden

This 4.5-acre rose garden has over 10,000 rose bushes and features picture-perfect views of Mt. Hood. The oldest rose garden in the country might get your pup a little dirty, but no need to fear. After you both wander through the roses, ZenPup’s Clean will make your pup smell like roses (or simply better than wet dog) right after your visit.

Nature, breweries, and patios - oh my! Portland makes being a dog owner even more fun! 

Traveling can be stressful for your pup because it takes you both out of your routines and in unknown places. Reduce your pup’s stress and anxiety while increasing their excitement for exploring with ZenPup’s CBD-infused products.
