Dog Friendly Patios

It’s one of the best times of the year in beautiful Victoria BC.. Patio Season! Nothing is better than sitting in the sun taking in the sites around the city while sipping on a delicious bevy. With so many pet lovers in Victoria, it’s no wonder there are so many dog friendly patios around town. Here is a list of dog friendly eateries around Victoria created by Darcie Jennings of CommuniCanine Training & Behavioural Counselling. If you favourite restaurant isn’t on the list, don’t worry.. use our app and we will deliver to your home patio.

***PLEASE NOTE: Although these shops may be dog friendly, some of their customers may not be. Be courteous and respectful. Keep your dog on a leash beside you and under control at all times. And if your dog goes to the bathroom, it is your responsibility to clean it up. Let’s do what we can to maintain the privilege of taking our dogs to these places with us.***
