Dog-Friendly Annapolis and Naples Resource

We are big believers that you'll never regret time spent with dogs, so we enjoy taking our dogs with us wherever possible. To help make the most of your time in Annapolis, Maryland (where Paws pet boutique originated) and Naples, Florida (where Paws is currently located) we created a list of dog-friendly restaurants and helpful tips.

Paws is more than a pet store - we thrive on bringing the pet community together and making everyday life with pet better. Please let us know if you have a link/suggestion and feel free to link to this page as a resource. Additionally, if you find a change to our pet-friendly list, please let us know. We'll be happy to update. Thank you!

Dog-friendly Restaurants in Naples

Naples Village Pub located in Venetian Village

Located on Venetian Bay, their extensive waterfront outdoor patio offers select tables to enjoy dining with your pup by your side. A dolphin or two may just make an appearance to keep your dog's attention, as well as the fish that swim in their underwater spotlights at night. Great pub fare including salads, nachos and burgers. Can't beat the view! Definitely on our go-to list.

Enjoy dining al fresco on their spacious outdoor patio, including a large covered area if it's raining. (Yes, we've eaten here in the pouring rain with our pups!) White lights create a festive atmosphere on the portion of their open-air patio in front. This Italian restaurant offers wood-oven pizza, entrees, salads and desserts. Always a welcoming place to enjoy dining with your dog. We've even gathered for a dog birthday here!

Fit and Fuel Cafe and Tap House in Pavilion Plaza

This casual spot offers a nice size outdoor patio with some shaded tables. The wait staff has always been very welcoming to our pets and usually asks if they can bring a water bowl out to the table.

We love the owners and staff here. From outdoor tables, comfy couches to friendly wait staff, your dog will feel welcomed.

The dog beach inside the Park is now open again too!
