If you’re in the market to take the dog days of summer quite literally and need to shop for your canine companions, or just want to have them chill on the patio with you for drinks, we know just the place. This time, Yelp Atlanta has a few spots where you can pamper the pooch.

Park Pet Supply
Finding yourself in East Atlanta Village beckons a short trip to this goldmine of a pet store. Peruse the menagerie of natural pet foods and everything else you could possibly need for Fido. Pro Tip: If you don’t see what you need, they’ll happily order it for you. 479 Flat Shoals Ave. SE Atlanta, GA 30316.

This Westside doggy shop is the perfect all-in-one for the busy professional found pet owner. All of your grooming needs, boarding, and vet services. They also provide online cameras to view the pooch while you’re out on business! 1456 Northside Dr. NW Atlanta, GA 30318.

Piedmont Dog Park
Whilst taking your furry friends on a jog through the park or enjoying a picnic in The Meadow, stop by this built-in dog park to let your furry friend mingle with his/her canine cohorts. Pro Tip: Two separate fenced areas for both small and large pups. Piedmont Park – Midtown.

4th & Swift
No need to interrupt your evening walk through Historic Old Fourth Ward Park with a trip to the kennel for the pooch. Dining on the patio here is dog-friendly for all. Don’t be a stranger to the Sticky Toffee Pudding. 621 North Ave. NE Atlanta, GA 30308.

This spot is the Holy Grail for those who are looking for a wifi workplace or a place to socialize over a cup of coffee while the dogs play. The great tree in the park casts plenty of shade for those sweltering days, too. 142 Flat Shoals Ave. SE Atlanta, GA 30316
