Taking dogs to breweries has become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more breweries have begun to welcome our furry friends. However, it's important to keep a few things in mind when bringing your pup along for the ride. Here are some tips for ensuring that both you and your dog have a pawsome time on your adventure!
First and foremost, it's important to bring along some dog treats and toys to keep your pup happy and occupied. Many breweries will have water bowls available for dogs, but having a few treats and toys on hand can help keep your dog from getting too antsy or restless.
Secondly, if you're visiting a brewery during the summer months, it's important to take steps to keep your dog cool and comfortable. Dogs can easily overheat in hot weather, so make sure to bring along plenty of water and perhaps even a cooling mat or vest. If the brewery has an outdoor seating area, try to find a shady spot for your pup to relax in. Another option is to pop your pup in our new Lucy & Co. Front Clip Harness. The breathable mesh interior is great for summer outings. Plus, with the dual attachment points, the front clip d-ring can help you easily redirect your dog's focus if they are getting antsy!

Another important factor to consider when taking your dog to a brewery is how to keep them calm during activities. Breweries can be really noisy and crowded, which can be overwhelming for some dogs. Bringing along a favorite toy or blanket can help your dog feel more comfortable and secure in these environments. Additionally, you may want to consider using a calming aid (like calming treats!) to help them relax.
Finally, it's important to be mindful of brewery rules and etiquette when bringing your dog along. Some breweries may only allow dogs in outdoor seating areas, while others may require dogs to be on a leash at all times. Be sure to respect these rules and clean up after your pup if they make a mess. You also want to make sure you’re paying attention to other dog owners, and respecting their dog’s boundaries. Remember it’s a brewery, not a dog park!
In conclusion, taking your dog to a brewery can be a fun and rewarding experience for both you and your dog. By bringing along some dog treats, keeping your dog cool during the summer months, and taking steps to keep them calm and comfortable during activities, you can ensure that both you and your pup have a great time at the brewery. Cheers!
