Dog Friendly Key West Businesses

One thing that I enjoy about living in Key West is that it is a pretty dog friendly place, and I love bringing my dog, Indiana Bones, all over town with me. I bring him shopping, to museums, and even out to eat. I know that there are many people like me, so I thought I’d share some of these dog friendly places with my readers and fellow dog lovers.

Please note that we make every effort to ensure that the information listed is accurate and up to date.  However, things change, sometimes without our knowing, so it is always a good idea to check directly with the proprietor before making your plans to prevent any problems. Also, note that size does matter when it comes to dogs. Many times small dogs are allowed to visit certain businesses whereas larger dogs and certain breeds may not be welcome for the comfort of the other customers.
