Bayswater Riverside Gardens
Located along Milne and King William streets in Bayswater, this park is absolutely awesome! It’s huge, has lots of trees for shade, marquees for picnics, BBQs, public toilets and it’s right on the river so on hot days the dogs can go for a cool down. Parking is also pretty good here. They also always have a coffee van in the parking lot which is a bonus for us humans!
Dally says: The river is the best part for dogs who love a swim!
The Leaky Tap
This cute little cafe allows dogs outside and also offers food and drink options for your dog so they are kept occupied while you enjoy your food and coffee. The big plus about this place is that you can make your orders through the side window so you don’t have to worry about leaving your precious pooches outside while you go in
Tofu says: Make sure you try the puppuccino and frozen pupsicle!
Aveley Dog Park
This beautiful, clean, grassy park is enclosed which makes it perfect for those who have dogs that like to wander. It has seperate big and small dog areas too.
Tofu says: Make sure you give the doggy play equipment a go!
This cafe is very very dog friendly but dogs are only allowed outside and orders need to be made at the counter inside. So you will have to send someone else in for you or leave your dog outside while you order. The food here is so delicious!! There is also a kids play area so you can bring the whole family and know that everyone will have a great time.
Dally says: Make sure you take us to the special fenced off doggy area for a run and play on the obsacles after you’ve finished your yummy meal!
Whiteman Park Dog Park
Another fenced off dog park perfect for those who know their doggies like to wander. It also has a seperate big dog and small dog area. Parking is usually pretty good here on a normal day too. The big dog play area has some cool dog obstacles and play equipment but there isn’t any on the small dog side.
Tofu says: This park is often busy so you’re sure to have other doggy pals to play with when you visit!
Rise and Grind Espresso Bar
We love this place. The food, coffee and shakes here are great! There is a front and back entrance to this cafe and dogs are allowed outside at both entrances. There is plenty of parking out the back too. Dogs aren’t permitted inside so you will have to leave them outside to order.
Dally says: Use your best begging skills and your human might just throw you some bacon!
Hillarys Dog Beach
Western Australia has so many amazing beaches! Our local is the Hillarys / Whitfords dog beach. It can get super busy in Summer and on weekends so even though there is lots of parking, it can sometimes be hard to find a spot.
Dally says: The beach is perfect for water babies like me!
Furbaby Boutique and Cafe
This awesome place is 100% dog friendly. Pets are allowed inside and out so you can order your food at the counter and not worry about leaving your pets outside. Inside they have a good range of pet supplies including costumes, collars, toys, pet treats and more! They also have a spa and pamper salon where you can take your pooch for a simple wash or an all out pamper session!
Tofu says: Make sure your humans let you try everything on the doggy menu!
Dally says: Try score some extra take home treats too!
This beautiful spot is an awesome place to go for those who love to check out the scenery. This place is packed with people and dogs on the weekends so although there’s lots of parking, it can still be tricky. It’s the perfect place to go for a bush walk and enjoy the scenic views of Bells’s Rapids then let your dogs have a cool down in the water. Please pick up after your dogs to make sure beautiful places like this continue to allow dogs.
Tofu says: Make sure you take a walk to the bridge that spans the Swan River right over the white water rapids. It’s a great spot for photos!
This cute little hole in the wall cafe is a great stop after taking your dogs for a play at the park across the road. They do really cool toasties and great coffee!
Dally says: Make sure your humans also get a yummy Puppycino for you!!
