UPDATE: I will no longer be featuring cities that have breed discriminatory laws in place. We must love all the dogs, not just some of the dogs. 

Therefore, you will not see Lakewood bars/restaurants on this list as you may be bothered by city officials or residents depending on what your dog looks like. I'm confident all these places would love to have your dog regardless of the way it looks. But unfortunately, city officials feel differently.

Yes, my studio is in Lakewood. It is only open by appointment and I do not allow people that discriminate through my doors. All dogs are welcome, regardless of the way they look.

Lucky for us, the Cleveland area is becoming more and more dog friendly with the opening of so many new bars and restaurants.

Notice any that we're missing? Please email greg@gmurrayphoto.com. We're not perfect and know that not everyone is on the list. So we need you to tell us. Thanks!

*Before visiting any of these establishments, we suggest calling ahead of time as policies may change at any time. Some businesses may have a size restriction or not allow dogs in certain areas of the establishment. Others may only allow dogs on certain days or times.

Please only take your dog out to these businesses if they are comfortable in environments where they may run into many strangers and other dogs and also be in congested/tight spots. Just because your dog does well around your home, friends and family, doesn't mean they'll love being at a restaurant or bar with people walking up to them often.
