If the existence of the Melbourne Dog Lovers Show wasn't enough proof, it's obvious Melburnians love their dogs from the abundance of dog-friendly places we have. You'll find heaps of cafés and pubs that welcome your pup with open arms, and there's no shortage of parks and beach areas to explore when you're tired of doing rounds of the neighbourhood. We've compiled the best things that this city has to offer your four-legged friend, so have a look and plan something fun for your furball. 

If your four-legged friend meows, check out our guide to having a fun weekend out and about with your cat.
