America’s playground can be fun for more than just humans. If you’re visiting Las Vegas with pets, you might be surprised to learn there are quite a few places where you can safely and legally take your furry friend – on and off the Strip.
Here are some of the top pet-friendly hotels, shops, and parks in Las Vegas:
Can You Walk Your Dog On The Las Vegas Strip?
The answer is, yes – with restrictions. While the best source of information is checking with your hotel, make sure you know the Strip’s general dog walking policies:
- Leashes no longer than 3ft.
- Dog walking is only permitted between 5 am and 12 pm
- Dogs may need to be left in your hotel room outside of these hours, but check your hotel’s policy for details
Which Hotels Are Pet-Friendly?
Can you imagine posting a selfie with your dog in front of Bellagio’s famous fountains? Now you can turn dreams into reality at Bellagio, with all rooms capably equipped for pets. Fees start from $125 to $175 per night per dog, depending on if you want a standard room or a suite.
A maximum of two dogs with a combined weight not exceeding 100 lbs are permitted. The Bellagio offers a special dog-friendly room service menu and pet-sitting options, with hotel employees checking on your dogs regularly for a fee – a handy amenity if you hit the Strip.
You can expect first-class service at Vdara for you and your furry friend in their special doggy-friendly suites. If room service is your thing, you and your pup will love Vdara’s pet-friendly in-room menu.
You can check in up to two dogs with a combined weight limit of 100 lbs. The fee is $100 – plus tax – per dog per night. Suites run $150 plus tax per dog per night.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas helps you and your dogs feel like celebrities, as it’s one of the most beloved places to take your pup on the Strip.
There’s no weight limit at the Cosmopolitan, so dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome. The Cosmo also has the Strip’s lowest pet fee at $50 per dog per night.
Guests are given a gift bag with dog treats, a chew toy, a collapsable water bowl, and puppy pads.
Where Can You Eat With Dogs?
Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar
If you’re looking to take your dog for a quality bite to eat, Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar at Town Square is a pup’s paradise. Lazy Dog provides indoor and outdoor seating areas and a small menu for your pet, with most dog-menu items ranging between $2 and $5.
Please note the below rules before deciding if this is the right restaurant for you and your pet:
- Dogs must be on a leash at all times.
- You may not feed dogs food from your plate – dogs may only eat items from the dog menu
- Doggy guests should not bark, beg or bite while in the restaurant
Where Can You Take Your Dog During The Day?
Desert Breeze Dog Park
Only seven miles from the Strip, Desert Breeze Dog Park is an excellent spot for you and your dog to make some local friends. Desert Breeze has ample parking, three enclosed dog runs, and a fenced space for both large and small dogs to play off-leash.
Water taps are available for pups to drink and cool off, especially in the warmer weather. The park regularly rotates which sections are open to keep the grass fresh for the dogs. It also has dog washing areas ideal for a dog who loves to get muddy.
The Fashion Show Mall
If you want to take your dog on a shopping trip, the Fashion Show Mall on the Las Vegas Strip is another dog-friendly location. Dogs must always be on a leash and be taken outside to do their business.
Security may ask you to leave if your dog is disruptive or aggressive. Each retailer also has its own dog policies, so you should always ask before taking your pet inside.
