A definitive guide to Adelaide's dog friendly venues

As a nation, Australia has one of the highest rates of dog ownership in the world. A higher proportion of Australians live in households with a dog and/or cat than with a child. So it's only natural that we would treat our dogs as more than just man's best friend, but as a part of our families.

Ever wanted to take your dog to with you to a winery on a Sunday afternoon but have no idea where they'd be welcome? Or to the pub for a cheeky Guinness? Restaurant? Cafe? Camping?

We're here to change that by providing you with a searchable directory of every dog friendly venue in Adelaide and South Australia.
