Portland, Oregon is consistently rated one of the most dog-friendly cities in the country.

There are tons of dog-friendly parks including the 5,000-acre Forest Park and Mt Tabor, which hosts the only active urban volcano in the country. Over 30 off-leash areas guarantee there is one in every neighborhood. Most apartments allow dogs and so does public transportation. Many businesses cater to our furry friends.

Puppernickel is a dog bakery where you can order pupcakes, handmade biscuits, or a complete birthday kit with human grade cake, paw-ty hats, and ice cream for dogs.

The Lucky Lab Brewpub serves Superdog IPA and Black Lab Stout, and hosts an annual Dogtoberfest celebration with beer, music, and a giant dog wash. Their annual Tour de Lab bike ride dresses riders in dog ears and noses, decorates portable toilets as fire hydrants, and offers an all-you-can-eat hot dog buffet.

Cycle Dog manufactures dog collars from recycled bicycle inner tubes and has an on-site Tavern Dog Park where you and your pup can watch them work.

The Tin Shed Café not only welcomes dogs, but it also has a menu just for them with Fido Food (chicken thighs and sweet potatoes) and Doggie Dessert (blended banana, peanut butter, and yogurt).

There is a pet shop or vet clinic for every 1,000 people.

Annual events include the Doggie Dash, Corgis in the Pearl, Pug Crawl, WillaMutt Strut (playing off the city center Willamette River) and the Howliday Bazaar.

Portland is passionate about a lot of things: coffee, bicycles, microbrews, food carts, and certainly its dogs.
