If you’re anything like me, then your dog is constantly with you. So much so that if you have to choose between a dog-friendly restaurant vs a 5-star restaurant, guess where you’re going….that’s right the dog-friendly restaurant.

I may be a little bias, but I believe that my pups deserve to experience these places as much as anyone else, plus it makes for good training. With that being said, I have put together a list of dog-friendly places in nearby towns. If I missed your favorite dog-friendly spot, please share with us in a comment so I can update the list.

New Bern

New Bern is a dog-friendly town that allows your pup to accompany you in most places. Stores will typically have a water dish out in front as an indication that they are pet-friendly. The stores that are not pet-friendly will usually state it in a sign on the door. As for restaurants, bars, and coffee shops if they have a patio there’s a good chance your pet can join. Please remember to be mindful of others and if in doubt ask an employee if your dog is allowed.
