Dog Walking in Bar Harbor

A relatively small town in Maine, Bar Harbor doesn’t let its size determine the excitement packed into the area. With scenic views and brisk weather that makes a walk with your dear doggy just divine, it’s easy to see why dog lovers would choose this location, be it for a short time or permanently. 

If their canine companions had their choice, they’d probably choose to live in the pristine area as well! Featuring 28 dog-friendly restaurants to choose from with any number of culinary options, as well as three pet friendly stores, one dog trail, and a dog park, this small area is jam packed with things to do with your dog! 

That’s not even to mention the three dog-friendly tours you can browse with your barking baby. One of these tours, the Acadian Nature Cruise, features the Acadian cruise ship which houses a heated cabin and is the perfect location to take in the multitude of wildlife along Frenchman Bay. It’s advised that you and your darling dog dress nice and warm, in spite of the heated cabin -- you won’t want to miss any of the action on deck. Bring along your sense of adventure!

A pitter patter of your pup’s paws away, you’ll find Peabody Drive. In this scenic location, you can begin to make your way to the Little Long Pond Leash-Free area. Though the location is not fenced in, if your dog is particularly obedient when it comes to voice commands and recalls, it can’t be missed. Your dog will be able to splash and play, all without the restraint of that pesky leash of theirs. Just be sure to bring fresh drinking water for you and pup, because that pond water isn’t good for puppy’s tummy! Doggy waste bags are a definite must as well.

A must-see on your doggy to-do list should be making your way in the direction of Albert Meadow, where you’ll find the Margaret Todd Windjammer Cruises.

The morning tends to be more laid-back, with most of the excitement happening in the afternoon and just when the sun sets. A romantic backdrop for you and your partner, live folk music accompanies the latest sailing time. What’s a romantic getaway without your best pal to serve as wingman, though? Or maybe you’re just looking to see the sights. You do you.
