Dog Friendly Bars and Cafes in New Zealand

Dog Friendly Bars, Cafe’s and Accommodation in New Zealand

Dog ownership should be fun and with that we should be able to take our puppies to be socialised and then our well socialised dogs to local eateries.

Ian Dunbar, whilst in Perth, Australia, started the motion to ask those people at his seminar to make a list of ‘dog friendly’ eateries around your area. This is the start of the list for New Zealand. If you are a dog friendly eatery or you find a dog friendly eatery in your area, let us know we will add to the list.

We look forward to hearing from you.
