I freaking love places that allow dogs—I’m of the camp that if a place allows kids, they should allow a well-behaved dog. I’ll unashamedly admit I’m far more apt to go somewhere if they’ll let
This got me thinking about the other places I know that allow dogs in the DC area, and thought it might be good to share them—it can be tough to track down a list online of stores/places that are dog-friendly. I don’t know too many, so if you know more (even in non-DC areas), please feel free to share!
Barrel Oak Winery: Believe me, if it’s on the way to/from Bluemont (it's in Fauqier County, VA-- I'm not the best with my geography past Duke St. in the ALX), I’m stopping there first/afterwards. There are fewer things more beautiful than a vineyard, and this one has some beautiful views online. It also sounds like they have some fun events, like movies. Dear Warm Weather: Please come soon.

Barnes and Noble: This one surprised me, too. I got kind of a vague response when I asked, but I’m pretty sure this is a company-wide policy—as the employee told me, they’d rather have dogs inside than left in the cold/hot car. But let me tell you this: I know for a fact that Clarendon is dog-friendly, as is
Restaurants with outside seating: This is kind of a no-brainer, but it’s important to note: if a restaurant has sidewalk seating (sit-down or take-out alike), they’re likely pet-friendly. Shirlington,
