PET-FRIENDLY MONTGOMERY COUNTY
Fun with Your Four-Legged Friends
As any animal lover knows, sometimes the best date is one with four legs. While not all places are "four-legged friendly," Montgomery County takes furry friends into consideration with plenty of options for dining, staying over and getting outdoors.
The resources listed below may have varying policies on accepting pets, so it's best to call ahead and confirm before arriving with an animal companion.
PLACES TO EAT
What's better than a burger with your Basset or a shake with your Shar Pei? Shake Shack in King of Prussia not only has pet-friendly outdoor seating but also has a small section on their menu just for dogs. The "Woof" section provides two pet-friendly options: a Pooch-ini and a Bag O' Bones.
Similarly, you are welcome to dine with your Dalmatian at the outdoor seating provided by:
PLACES TO STAY
HYATT HOUSE PHILADELPHIA / PLYMOUTH MEETING
Hyatt House Philadelphia/Plymouth Meeting understands that traveling isn't the same without your most steadfast companion by your side. As long as your pooch us under 50 pounds, he or she is welcome to spend the night and explore all the Fido-friendly options the area has to offer.
Other dog-friendly hotels in the county include:
Extended Stay American (King of Prussia)
Motel 6 (King of Prussia)
DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia / Valley Forge (King of Prussia): Service Dogs Only
PLACES TO PLAY
RESERVOIR DOGS PARK
Looking for a place for your mutt to mingle? Check out Reservoir Dogs Park in Phoenixville. This not-so-typical dog park is full of trees for a forest-like effect, yet fenced in for maximum off-leash fun. There is even a separate section for smaller pups to ensure safe play.
Additional in-county dog parks are in:
Narberth (701 Montgomery Pk)
Horsham (1013 Horsham Rd)
North Wales (Routes 202 and 63)
Wyncote (1250 West Church Rd)
Hatboro (3430 West Mill Rd)
Now is the perfect time to experience the picturesque foliage that the area has to offer. Leash up that Labrador and head to the Perkiomen Trail or the Schuylkill River Trail for some of the most picturesque and pleasant miles you'll ever walk with your Westie.
VALLEY FORGE NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK
At Valley Forge National Historical Park, your dog can enjoy sniffing amid the dogwoods, appropriately enough, as well as dozens of other varieties of trees. The park's paved trails are great for trotting along, and near the pavilion by the Visitor Center is a water fountain with a bowl that is convenient for lapping.
