Dogs are permitted on the National Mall on leash. According to the National Park Service, they are permitted up to the monuments except in indoor or covered areas. The mall is two miles long and is an excellent place for dog walking downtown. You may get up-close views of the Capital, White House and most of the Monuments. Dogs are not permitted on the walkways at the Vietnam or Korean War Memorials or inside the Washington Monument.
DogFriendly.com, with tens of thousands of places listed to take your dog to, will be releasing on it’s Dog News blog, Facebook page and on Twitter a list of 200 Top Places that you can take your dog in the U.S. and Canada. This list, while intended to highlight top places that are especially pet-friendly, is not designed to be the absolutely top 200 places that we could find, but a sampling of the top places so that all regions, types of attractions, hotels, B&Bs, vacation rentals, parks, beaches, shopping and more can be considered. No doubt each of you will find many other places not on this list or our full list of dog-friendly places at http://www.dogfriendly.com. Please let us know about them by commenting on the blog or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also let us and our readers know if you agree or disagree with the selections, or your experiences there. Please keep in mind that places often change their policies regarding dogs and thus may have different policies at any time in the future.
