Currently, outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people are permitted, but use COVID-19 layers of protection and maintain physical distancing. Please adhere to COVID-19 health and safety measures, including proper physical distancing and frequent hand washing, and wearing a mask or face-covering in public indoor and retail spaces. If you are sick, please stay home. 

Dog-friendly patios in Vancouver are what we all need right now.

There are quite a few eateries in and around the city with pup-friendly policies, which means your pooch can enjoy patio privileges alongside you.

We don’t like to leave our four-legged friends at home and we know you feel the same. So next time you decide to go out for a coffee or a meal along with your pup, make sure to check out these joints that provide a welcoming space for your pup as you feast on your food.

Here are just some of the fantastic dog-friendly patios in and around Vancouver to visit with your pooch.
