These Dog-Friendly Spots Get South Florida’s Bark of Approval

Dogs love at aventura mall

They’re your wet-nosed wake-up call, the star of your Instagram, your binge-watching buddy and, let’s be honest, your better half. Dogs truly are a human’s best friend, so it’s only fitting we invite them to shop, eat and explore with us here at Aventura Mall.

Looking to raise a pup with impeccable culture, style and taste? We’ve got you covered. Here are a few dog-friendly destinations you and your four-legged baby can enjoy together.

Warning: they will quite literally beg to return.

Let’s get dressed.

Treat your fashion-forward fur baby to a wag-worthy wardrobe. Aventura Pups – a must-visit for dog lovers and their chic canines – offers a variety of sweet, sassy and classy “outfits,” as well as accessories including collars, leashes, hats, booties and toys.

And, if you really want to treat someone who has been a very “good girl” or “good boy,” take them along to some more of our retailers, including luxury brands. Several are not only dog-friendly, but also offer pieces just for them. Simply ask an associate for the store’s individual policy.

Let’s eat some treats

A well-treated pup is a happy pup. Several eateries offer canine-curated menu items: stop by Cielito Artisan Pops for a PUPsicle or visit Shake Shack for Pooch-ini items. Drooling is encouraged.

Need a regular human meal and want Fido to come along? The following restaurants and eateries allow patio seating with your pup (and a water bowl for them to enjoy as they soak in some sunshine):

  • Tap 42 Craft Kitchen and Bar
  • Pubbelly Sushi
  • CVI.CHE 105
  • Serafina
  • Bella Luna
  • The Cheesecake Factory
  • Trattoria Rosalia
  • PANI
  • Pollos & Jarras
  • Motek

Let’s take pictures with art.

We love a cultured canine. While enjoying the Outdoor Courtyard, stop by the Haas Brothers’ Gorillas in the Mist, Carsten Holler’s Aventura Slide Tower and Robert Indiana’s LOVE Sculpture to snap Insta-worthy pics of you and your photogenic fur baby while experiencing some of the best public art in Miami.

To get some more steps in, embark along our self-guided Art Walk and snap photos with each piece in our Arts Aventura Mall collection. You’ll love Jaume Plensa’s Florida Soul; your dog will love the koi pond just below (just remember – fish are friends, not food. No swimming here!)

For another sunny experience, head up to the rooftop and snag a photo shoot of your dog with Nate Dee’s Cherish Home mural as the backdrop.

Let’s go out for a bathroom break.

Jessicas-Dog-Park aventura-mall

To ensure a comfortable visit, Aventura Mall’s very own Jessica’s Dog Park, located outside the mall entrance by Serafina, offers a gated outdoor space for your furry friend to stretch their paws, hydrate at a water station, and take a bathroom break on the grass (a pick-up station is conveniently located inside the park).

And, because so many dogs have proven their love and loyalty to Aventura Mall, we’ve just opened a second dog station, located on the Lower Level entrance by Divieto and Les Moulins La Fayette.

Want to show off your adventures with your best friend? Tag @AventuraMall and #AventuraMall in your photos for a chance to be featured on our social channels and in-mall digital screens.
