A Guide For Boston Dogs

Boston Massachusetts is a pretty terrific city to live in with a dog. Unless of course your dog needs to go out in the middle of a Nor-Easter in the middle of the night. Boston is considered a fantastic city for walking with it’s beautiful architecture and preserved historical elements and numerous grassy parks.

However, living in Boston with your dog does have it’s challenges. Hopefully the Fido Loves guide for Boston dog owners will help ease the way and introduce you and your dog to some new dog friendly adventures in Boston as well as throughout New England.

Find Dog Friendly Beaches Around Boston

“Where is a dog friendly beach near Boston where my dog can swim?”, might be the most popular question from Boston dog owners during the summer. I love going to the beach for a swim and so does my dog. Swimming is a great way to burn off extra energy and let them cool off at the same time. Besides, dogs playing in the ocean

It’s Not Yappy Hour, It’s Yappier Hour at The Liberty Hotel

The very pet friendly Liberty Hotel sets up an outside bar in their enclosed courtyard for dogs and their owners. Drinks and appetizers were served among a unique mix of romping pooches and Bostonians. As I have heard great things about The Liberty from others regarding the quality of cocktail and conversation, I had high expectations already. I was, however, unsure how Moose our Pointer would fit in.

Get Involved With A Dog Friendly Charity

Dog owners are always looking for something to do with their dog in Boston. Typically I write about where to find a dog friendly beach or which apple orchards allow dogs.Recently, I spent my Sunday at the “Lather Up The Love!” fundraiser for Lucky Labs Rescue and Adoption at Durty Harry’s in Charlestown. I was there to photograph a bunch of the labs for an upcoming project on Fido Loves.

Apple Picking Dogs Allowed

Fall in Boston brings along traditions in New England like apple picking. Personally, I love apple picking as it usually means apple pie afterwards. And like like dogs, is fresh baked apple pie not part of the American dream? Our quest was to find an apple orchard where our dog was allowed to come apple picking as well.
