Updated October 2021


Reynolda Village

This area is known for its great selection of restaurants and shopping, but it’s also a perfect destination to bring your dog! In the warmer months, your pup may also enjoy a dip in the water.

Dogwood Hops and Crops and Trophy Room

A perfect place for friends who love both beer and cocktails. The atmosphere is wonderful and you are sure to run into another furry friend while you are there.

Tanglewood Dog Park

This dog park is massive, always has other pups for your pup to play with, and is definitely on the less muddy side compared to other Winston-Salem dog parks.

Doggos Dog Park and Pub

Only a 30-minute drive from Winston-Salem, Doggos is the place to relax while your dog gets to enjoy the off-leash indoor/outdoor dog park. The owner of the park is extremely nice and dedicated to making Doggo’s a fun and safe place for both humans and dogs (she is also a Salem College Alum!). You are guaranteed to meet wonderful fellow dog parents and your pups will get all their energy out.

Sayso Coffee

Sayso not only has some of the most delicious coffee in Winston-Salem, but they are also very dog friendly. They have a wonderful backyard that is the perfect place for you and your pooch to enjoy a cup of coffee together.

Other places that are dog friendly:

6th & Vine, Cugino Forno, Poppyseed Provisions, and most breweries.


Venture Dog Walking

@ivoryhoundweddings –  Want your best fur friends in your wedding but know the day will be too chaotic to give them the attention they need? Ivory Hound is the wedding day pet care you need.

Co-Op K9

@co_opk9 – If you are looking for training, look no further. Co-Op K9 has trained dogs all over the Triad. If you want to become the leader of your pack as well as build a trusting and reliable relationship with your dog, Co-Op K9 is the place to go.

Howlin’ at the Moon Bakery

@howlinatthemoonbakery – Treat your dog to some yummy treats! Currently, you can find them at various pop-up events and markets, but they are opening up their very own shop in West End. They will continue serving delicious treats for your dogs and they will have a Self Service Dog Wash and full retail shop for anything your dog might need.
