We’ve all lamented over the recent ban excluding dogs from inside of breweries, but, it’s time to dry our eyes, folks, because we’ve compiled a list of places that (still) allow dogs in the Charlotte area… 

As dog owners and lovers, there’s nothing better than soaking up the rays on the patio of your favorite restaurant or bar with your furry friends but it’s officially winter and winter means no more warm sun, no more patios, and ultimately making it more difficult to bring the pups out and about.

If you’re anything like us here at The Waggle Company, we want to take out dogs everywhere. Here are some places to continue to fun all year long!

The Dog Bar – Climate controlled. Off-leash play time. Drinks. And lots of local take-out to enjoy. Just be prepared for the $10 membership fee for your dog (all vaccinations must be up-to-date).

Lucky Dog Bark and Brew – With two locations (Charlotte and Cornelius), you can enjoy a drink with your furry friends all year round! Just remember to bring your pup’s shot records.

The Charlotte Checker’s Pooch Party –  Nothing beats watching our Charlotte Checkers take on the Chicago Wolves while also cuddling your favorite pup. (Bonus: this game is also Chubby’s Birthday Party and Daddy/Daughter Day!)

Gallery Twenty-Two – Bring the art connoisseur in yourself out along with your dog at this pet-friendly, contemporary art gallery located in Plaza Midwood.

Crowder’s Mountain State Park – For those more mild days of Charlotte’s winter, working up a sweat is sure to keep you warm. Climb one of Crowder’s mountains many trails with Fido by your side, he’s sure enjoy the exercise and fresh air!

Bonus Event:

Puppy Bowl 2017 – Hosted by A Plus Garage Doors, this event is sure to be great! Mingle with local pet owners, “rent-a-puppy” for a day, and meet some adorable shelter pups looking for their fur-ever home on January 28th in Pineville.
