Everybody knows that Melbourne isn’t just a bit of a vibe, it’s a huge vibe. You’ll find more often than not that your dog is more welcome in most cafes & pubs in Melbourne than you are. We put in the hard yards and did a pub and cafe crawl to present to you Melbourne’s Best Dog Friendly Spots! Grab a world renowned Melbourne coffee, or maybe a pint with your pooch and get ready to bond with your dog.

Yes you read that correctly, you will find DOGHOUSE in the heart of Collingwood and it is equipped with a dedicated menu for your four legged friend, a huge courtyard and even an inhouse grooming service! Your pup can get pampered here all day and on your way out, pick up some take away meat for them as well. DOGHOUSE is truly one of a kind and your pup will have the greatest of times here.
