Dog Friendly Vacation

Travel DubuqueActive, Explore, Stay


Dogs are a man’s best friend! Traveling with your pooch best friend offers many opportunities and challenges. However, not everywhere welcomes our furry friends. Luckily, Dubuque offers a number of pet friendly activities and places to stay. So grab your dog, and have a “pawsome” time!

Activities for you & your Pup


Open every Saturday morning, the farmers market is a perfect place to stroll with your dog. Enjoy the camaraderie of other pet owners while you shop for fresh produce, wine, crafts, jewelry, bakery goods, honey, plants and even dog treats.

This 4th Street attraction allows small dogs (benches are tight fitting) to ride with their humans. At the observation deck, enjoy the gorgeous panoramic view of Dubuque, the Mississippi River and bluffs of Illinois and Wisconsin.

This book store is filled with literary choices to enjoy while your pet relaxes. Perhaps a book about the life of dogs?

Sitting adjacent to Bunker Hill Golf Course, this park has 2.5 fenced acres for large and small dogs to run off leash. Socialization for dogs and their owners is always fun.

Dog Friendly Hotels


Each hotel charges extra as a cleaning fee and several have weight restrictions but each welcomes your puppy for a happy stay.
