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

Dogs at Love Sculpture

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
  • Toku

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.

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 have a second dog station, located on the Lower Level entrance by Divieto and Les Moulins La Fayette.
