Company Overview

Helping people and their pets do more together … that’s GoPetFriendly!

From Sunday brunch to a cross-country adventure, life is better when it’s shared with pets. But locating pet friendly restaurants, accommodations, and fun things to do was daunting. We launched GoPetFriendly in 2009 to help pet lovers enjoy more time with their pets.

With listings for thousands of pet friendly restaurants, attractions, and other points of interest, we make it easy to plan activities for the entire family. These are just some of the kinds of places you’ll find:

  • Beaches
  • Boat tours and ferry rides
  • Breweries and wineries
  • Dog parks and off-leash spaces
  • Drive-in movie theaters
  • Restaurants where pets are welcome
  • Parks and nature
  • Pet friendly museums
  • Scenic train rides
  • Shopping centers where you and your pet can browse

For overnight getaways or longer vacations, we have an extensive database of nearly 30,000 pet friendly hotels, bed and breakfasts, vacation properties, and campgrounds throughout the United States and Canada. Utilizing our detailed pet polices, GoPetFriendly users can find accommodations to suit their specific needs, including lodgings that welcome multiple pets, cats, and large dogs.

Ready for a pet friendly road trip? Whether it’s a jaunt to Grandma’s house or a journey along Route 66, our Trip Planner makes traveling a breeze. Using the starting point and destination we map the route. From there it’s a cinch to add stops along the way to get lunch, stretch your legs at a dog park, or spend the night at a pet friendly hotel or campground. Everything you need to plan the perfect trip is at your fingertips.

Even bumps in the road aren’t an issue with GoPetFriendly’s listings for animal hospitals and veterinarians, boarding and daycare providers, pet sitters and pet supply stores.

Of course, the best part of any trip is sharing the experience. GoPetFriendly members can write reviews and post photos of all the accommodations, activities and service providers they visit.

Helping people and their pets do more together is our passion. Visit us now at
