Duluth is the fourth-largest city in Minnesota home to beautifully preserved historic sites, cultural attractions, and breathtaking vistas of Lake Superior. It's also pretty doggone Fido-friendly! A handful of veterinarians keep Duluth's doggos in happy and healthy, and the big-box pet stores in town carry all the supplies you need to pamper your pal.

Over a dozen restaurants in Duluth welcome doggy diners at their outdoor patios.  Whether you and your hound have a hankering for Mexican, Italian, or good old-fashioned American cuisine, you're sure to find something to please your pup's palate here. Some of the city's taverns also host a fun "Yappy Hour" in which canine customers receive treats on the house! After your dinner date, leash up and head out to one of the city's four off-leash areas. Just be sure to bring plenty of water and waste baggies.

Before you start planning your Fido-friendly stint in the City on the Hill, there are a few things you should know. According to city law, dogs must be leashed in all public spaces — no exceptions. Break this rule and you could face a $200 fine! Out-of-towners hoping to meet some new canine compadres at Duluth's dog parks must bring proof of current rabies vaccination. (Duluth residents must also provide their dog's city registration tag.)

Now that you know the rules, leash up, head out, and start exploring the dog-friendly attractions in Duluth! If you're venturing to a place that prohibits pups, don't leave your doggo home alone. Book a professional dog walker in Duluth through the Wag! Walking app and rest easy knowing your pup is in good paws!
