Dog Friendly Places Around Syracuse, NY

Are you so attached to your beloved fur baby that you just want to take them everywhere? Why not make that dream a reality?


While Syracuse doesn’t have too much open space, there are still plenty of things to do with man’s best friend. Consider this your pet-friendly travel guide for a great day out in Syracuse, New York.


From nature trails to restaurants, there are always things to do. Here is a short list of some of the best things to do with your four-legged friend!



Nothing beats the great outdoors. If you and your dog love a good adventure, start your day with a hike!


There are some great hiking spots around CNY, like Tinker Falls in Tully. You can see the falls from a short accessible trail from NY-91.


If that sounds like too much of an adventure, consider a good old fashioned walk instead. On University Avenue, just minutes away from the Syracuse University campus, sits Grace Episcopal Church. Its small park is a beautiful spot for you and your pup to take in the fall colors.

If you like to be pampered, odds are your dog does too — so take them for a doggy spa day! Whether they get their nails clipped or a bath, any grooming is sure to make your dog’s day out special. For all your pet grooming needs, check out Bark Avenue on Sunset Avenue in Syracuse. 




Our dogs can’t usually eat our food, but some places make it possible for us to eat with our dogs.


Here’s a list of some of the best pet-friendly restaurants in the area, just be sure your dog is on a leash!


Apple Picking


Apple picking is a classic fall activity, so bring your dog with you to Abbot Farms in Baldwinsville! 

If you and your pup aren’t really into apples, you’re in luck.  Abbot Farms also offers pumpkins and a corn maze!

Doggy Daycare


If you absolutely have to go somewhere, but don’t want your dog to be alone, give daycare a try. Rather than being bored or anxious while you’re away, your dog will have tons of fun playing with their pals!


The best place for doggy daycare in Syracuse? K-9 Kamp Dog Daycare. Dogs have full access to outdoor areas all day and indoor areas are air-conditioned when necessary.

Due to allergies and dietary restrictions, the people at K-9 Kamp do not give treats to the dogs.
