Each day in Door County are the dog days, not just in the summer! And, we’re not just talking about a walk in the park. Door County welcomes dogs on many of our beaches, at a number of our restaurants and lodging properties, and even on excursions to Washington Island or cruises in Sturgeon Bay.

We’ve done a little digging and have the scoop on how to make the most of your travels in Door County when accompanied by your four-legged companion!

Start your trip planning with pet-friendly lodging. Lodging properties typically like to know in advance if you’re bringing your dog, so it’s always a good idea to mention your four legged friend when you make your reservation. For the comfort of your pet and other guests, it’s not advised to leave your dog in your room when you’re not there. Since dogs are welcome in so many places in Door County, you and your pet won’t miss out on anything.

In almost every community in Door County, restaurants offer outdoor patio dining for you and your pet. Some stops even cater to canines with organic delights just for them. Don’t forget to pick up some local treats!

When it’s time to walk it all off, you may want to check out one or more of the five state parks and 19 county parks that allow pets. Door County also has a number of beaches where your pooch is welcome, including Whitefish Dunes State Park, which has a dedicated pet section of the beach in the summer months, Peninsula State Park at the canoe and kayak launch dock at Tennison Bay, the Lakeside Park Beach in Jacksonport and Frank E. Murphy County Park, just south of Egg Harbor. Park rules require for dogs to be leashed and for any waste to be picked up.

When you come to Door County with your dog, we really do welcome pets “like nowhere else.” For more information on pet-friendly lodging visit DoorCounty.com/where-to-stay/pets-allowed. If dinner for you and your four-legged companion is what you desire, visit DoorCounty.com/where-to-dine/pets for a complete listing of restaurants that welcome Fido with a smile. Additional info can also be gathered via email at info@DoorCounty.com or by phone at 800.527.3529

the sky with vivid streaks of yellow, orange, and red. Framed by 300 miles of rocky, scenic shoreline, Door County is home to oceanfront experiences and seaside escapes hidden within the heart of the Midwest.

From luxurious resorts to one-of-a-kind bed and breakfasts, secluded cottages, and rustic, waterfront campsites — Door County offers visitors an assortment of lodging options guaranteed to suit every taste and budget while remaining environmentally friendly.

By patronizing green businesses you are investing in a sustainable future locally, nationally, as well as, internationally that undoubtedly preserves and protects the environment for generations to come. By purchasing local fruit, vegetables, fish, and other food staples along with organic cleaning products and recycled paper products, Travel Green certified lodging establishments support local businesses and lessen their environmental impact. This effort is carried over into on-site composting programs to reduce waste, fluorescent lighting to reduce energy use, and regular maintenance of water-using appliances such as faucets and toilets to conserve water.
