1. Dog-Friendly Accommodations

Book your stay at the most dog-friendly hotel in Carmel. Each of the spacious suites and cozy studios at Carmel Country Inn are Pet Friendly. You and your furry friend will be greeted with Sojo dog treats, water bowls, and blankets plus your pet’s photo will be taken for the “Wall of Woof”, “Yearbark” and Carmel Country Inn Facebook page.

2. Romp on the Beach

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.

Pet Friendly Carmel Dining

3. Pet-Friendly Dining

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 the 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 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.
