  • Meander thru Carmel Village to the foot of Ocean Avenue and let your best friend off leash on Carmel Beach. Mutt Mitt dispensers and an outdoor shower are available after a day of romping in the sand, shaking kelp, chasing waves and balls and sniffing their new furry friends.


  • Enjoy Lunch and Dinner at any of over 15 Pet Friendly restaurants, all with outdoor heated seating.  Several have special blankets for your pets to lounge on, treats and bowls of chilled water to drink.  Forge in the Forest Restaurant has a Doggie Menu and Terry’s Lounge at the Cypress Inn welcomes pets for their daily “Yappy Hour”   If your occasion calls for an activity or restaurant that is not pet friendly Carmel Country Inn can provide you with Pet Sitter options who will come to your room, walk and talk with your pets, or just keep them company while you enjoy your enjoy yourself.


  • Shop in Carmel Village, the majority of the one of a kind shops, galleries, & wine tasting rooms are Pet Friendly and even have custom water bowls in front of their store and treats inside. Carmel Plaza’s 3 tier open air shopping center even has a ‘fountain of wolf” in the lower level garden area.


  • Make a stop (or 2) at Diggidy – Our local Pet Boutique on Mission Street just south of Ocean Avenue has an abundance of treats, themed cookies, apparel, leashes and best of all, toys!  There is even a section for kitties.  Even if you don’t get to bring your best friend along to Carmel, Diggidy Dog has plenty of take away souvenirs for your furry friend.
