Getting Out And About With Your Dog

On weekends and our beautiful summer days, it is not uncommon to see Perth residents taking their canine companions for a strolls and stop off for a coffee or a bite to eat. But what about your pooch?

Luckily, there are now many places in Perth, and across WA, that are ‘pet friendly’ and this month we have a look at just some of the great places you can both enjoy.

Burns Beach Cafe

This lovely little spot overlooks the ocean and is great for breakfast or lunch, 7 days a week. Your furry friend can choose from their doggy menu of healthy treats and meals as well!

Beaufort St Books

What better way to relax than window shopping along the many great stores on Beaufort St before stopping off with a good book and a coffee. Pet friendly Beaufort St Books caters for both you and your dog, as you browse the great variety of reading material.

Little Stove – Bicton

Many dog owners have stumbled upon this great cafe, who are renowned for their deluxe breakfasts. Piney Lakes is a short walk, where you can let your pooch off-lead for a romp in the grass and a walk around the lakes.

Behind the Monkey – Mt Lawley

If you’re looking for all things beautiful look no further than Behind the Monkey on Beaufort St – and your dog can browse along with you! Don’t fret about leaving your dog outside – give you and your pet a very unique and enjoyable shopping experience in store.

Beaches Cafe – Cottesloe

This lovely little Cottesloe cafe has a great grassed area where you can spread a picnic rug or beach towel and enjoy a bite to eat overlooking the ocean. Doggy water bowls are also provided to quench your little ones thirst.

Mundy Park- Lesmurdie

This stunning walk is an all time favourite, where you can let your dog off-lead to walk with you in the hills along a bubbling brook and beautiful waterfalls with views over the City. Treat yourself to an authentic French breakfast, lunch or coffee afterwards at Le Paris Brest on Haynes St, where you and your dog can relax in the courtyard.

Port Beach Dog Beach

This Fremantle hotspot is a favourite for dogs and their owners, with long beautiful walks along the sand towards the Port and up towards Cottesloe. Let your dog frolic in the ocean   or chase a ball and enjoy the Fremantle Doctor.

Riverside Gardens – Bayswater

It’s a dog’s world at Riverside Gardens, with fabulous riverside walks, huge grassed areas and plenty of smells to sniff.
