No Bones About It...Philly's Going to the Dogs

Dogs have long been man's best friend"and Philly understands that better than anywhere else. Many hotels in the area are accomodating guests (and their furry friends) by offering walking paths, loaner collars and accessories, pet walking and pet sitting services and even posh rooms with TV and DVD players for Fifi's viewing pleasure (the latter courtesy of Mazzu's Canine and Feline Hotel).

Philadelphia Fish & Co. as well as the Continental are many Old City establishments with pet-friendly environments. In University City the appropriately named White Dog Cafe, encourages diners to eat al fresco with their canine companions. In Manayunk, Le Bus and Derek's also provide complimentary water bowls while dining outside.

If grooming and pampering is what you're looking for, stop at Bonejour in Old City, which features canine couture as well as beds, leashes etc. Chic Petique , located just off of South Street, is fully stocked with the everday items as well as treats shaped like human food and objects. For a place to play, try The Center City Dog Park so your mutt can mix and mingle with the rest of the canine population.
