As the most populated city in Nevada, Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city, known primarily for its gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife. With all the activities and adventures worth bragging about, you and your pup may have a hard time letting what happens in Vegas, stay in Vegas.
Places to Stay
Stay along the famous Las Vegas Strip at The Cosmopolitan and Fido will be greeted with a welcome BarkBox filled with dog treats, a souvenir toy, a collapsible water bowl, and potty pads. The casino hotel has two dog runs where your pooch can stretch his legs and do his business, too. Two dogs of any size are welcome for a fee of $50 per dog, per night. Caesars Palace, which welcomes two dogs under 50 pounds for a fee of $85 per night, plus a refundable deposit of $100, offers a specialized room service menu just for dogs, dog bowls and mats at check-in, and a pet relief station. If you’d prefer to stay off-the-strip in a cozy cabin, book a dog-friendly accommodation at Mt. Charleston Lodge. They welcome one dog of any size for a fee of $30 per night and two dogs of any size for a fee of $50 per night. Relax in a jetted tub, warm up by the fire, or unwind on a private balcony overlooking the mountain. Dogs are even allowed at the onsite restaurant where they can dine from the canine menu.
Places to Eat
When it comes to dining out with your pup in Sin City, it’s like hitting the jackpot. The Lazy Dog Cafe is a dog-themed eatery with cozy surroundings, dog-friendly outdoor seating, and an eclectic menu of hearty American eats. A server will greet your dog with a bowl of fresh water and a doggie menu with options like a grilled hamburger patty or a grilled chicken breast served with brown rice. Along Fremont Street, head to Park on Fremont and sit on the dog-friendly front patio with a craft cocktail served in a mason jar. Or, sit on the other patio that was designed to look like it was plucked from a rural setting and transplanted into the middle of downtown and is unlike anything in Las Vegas. They serve comfort foods like burgers, mac and cheese balls, and tacos. In the mood for a brew? Head to Banger Brewing’s patio for locally-made craft beer and tasty pub grub. They also regularly host Paws and Pints, an event that provides the opportunity for pet adoption and benefits the Adopt A Rescue Pet foundation by donating a dollar from every beer sold.
Looking to escape the noise, bright lights, and smoky air of the casinos? Grab lots of water and your dog’s leash and head to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, located less than a half-hour drive from the Las Vegas Strip. Wake up early to beat the heat and experience some amazing sunrise views over the canyon. There’s a trail for all skill levels, from easy to advanced. Located less than an hour’s drive from downtown Las Vegas, Mount Charleston offers the chance to explore over 50 miles of hiking trails in a climate with temperatures averaging 20 degrees lower than Sin City. That means from November through April, there is snow on the mountain! Have a dog-friendly snowball fight at the Foxtail Winter Snowplay Area in Lee Canyon. For $20 per vehicle, enjoy hillside snow-play with parking, heated restrooms, and concessions serving hot cocoa. Back in Vegas, spend a spooky evening on a 1.7-mile walking tour of the supernatural side of Sin City with Las Vegas Ghosts Tours. Dogs are welcome to join you on these nightly tours at 8 p.m. An advance paid reservation via Las Vegas Ghosts' website is required for humans, but dogs are free!
Want to pick up a souvenir for your dog to remember their time in Vegas? Head to The Dog House, located in the Grand Bazaar Shops, for unique accessories like rhinestone collars and Las Vegas bandanas, toys, food bowls, and gourmet food. If you need to stock up on gourmet treats for your spoiled pooch, check out either Woof Gang Bakery or Three Dog Bakery. Holistic hounds will prefer the selection at Wag & Wash Natural Food & Bakery, which offers a self-wash station in addition to their large selection of healthy dog food, treats, and supplements.
If your pup needs to be scrubbed and fluffed, look no further than these Las Vegas groomers: Snooty Pets or Lucky’s Pet Grooming & Boutique. Have tickets to see a show and you can’t bring your canine? Book a daycare session at Camp Bow Wow or Barx Parx, which offer playtime environments for Fido while you’re away. If you need to book an extended stay for your pet, check out the luxurious accommodations at Las Vegas Dog Resort or Luxe Pet Hotels. In case of emergency, or if you have to visit a veterinarian during your stay in Sin City, call the experienced Pet Medical Center Las Vegas or Pet Health & Lifetime Care Center on Desert Inn.
