Dogs are everyone’s best friends, aren’t they? No one wants to leave their canine friend at home when they go on a trip, we want to experience a new city with them! Luckily, Liverpool is a super friendly dog city and we know that because we spoke to local dog about the town, Harlee The Dachshund and her owner, about all the dog friendly things they like to do in the city. 

They gave us some of their top places to go but if you want to explore more of the city with your pet pooch check out this blog on all the dog friendly things to do in Liverpool, from eating and drinking to running round the parks. There might even be a few more pictures of Harlee having fun!


Where are your favorite places to eat and drink in Liverpool?

There's so many! Our favourites places to eat are Moose Coffee on Hope Street and Clockworks at Wolstenholme Square. Our most recent favourite is The Bagelry to pick up some delicious doughnuts and bagels! We also love to visit a Starbucks to pick up a puppuccinno and there are plenty in Liverpool (I am not sure if all are dog friendly but they always have outdoor seating). 

We always love visiting the Baltic Market for food and drink and recently discovered a natural dog treats market stall called DABDogs at the Red Brick Vintage Market. Love & Rockets on Lark Lane is also a favourite of ours and they have a lovely outdoor seating area. 

We're looking forward to visiting more bars with outdoor areas over the summer such as the Botanical Gin Garden in the Baltic Triangle or Gusto which has a great view overlooking The Royal Albert Dock.


Where are your favourite places to go on walks in Liverpool?

We love going to Sefton Park and then heading down to Lark Lane for some drinks! We’re also a big fan of going to Abercromby Square in the University of Liverpool and strolling along the Royal Albert Dock.


Where are your favorite places for play time in Liverpool?

Most of the time we let Harlee off the lead in the parks so that she can roam around and play with her tennis ball. As Liverpool is so dog friendly, going to parks in the city allows her to play and socialise with other dogs. It also gives us the opportunity to meet fellow dog lovers!

Check out this blog on some of Liverpool's best green spaces to head with your dog. 


What kind of events do you like to go to in the city?

We have visited events such as the Dachshund Cafe at Yard and Coop and we have also taken Harlee on a stand up paddle boarding experience with Liverpool SUP Co at the Royal Albert Dock. It’s a great opportunity to take in the beautiful views of the city with your dog doing something a bit different. 


At Christmas we went to the Santa Paws event held at the Baltic Market and it was a great way for Harlee and us to make new friends. 


Where are you really looking forward to visiting in Liverpool?

Crosby Tea Rooms have a doggy afternoon tea which we are really interested in and it’s just a short train ride out of the city centre and not far from Crosby Beach too. Brewdog on Colquitt Street hold dog birthday parties which I am very tempted to do for for Harlee's 1st Birthday coming up!

We would also love to visit other parks such as Calderstones or Otterspool too.


What’s your favorite thing about Liverpool?

Our favourite thing about Liverpool is how dog friendly it is and how accessible everything is. We love that there is a wide range of things to do with your dogs in the city; from going out to eat or even bringing your dog shopping as quite a few shops in Liverpool One are dog friendly. There are plenty of things to do so that you never have to leave your dog at home!


We think Harlee and her owner’s suggestions on what to do in Liverpool are amazing and love seeing them out and about in the city. If you want to see more of their adventures go and follow them on Instagram at Harleethedachshund.

Let us know where you are heading to in the city with your dog over on our twitter @VisitLiverpool - we love seeing all your pictures!
