1. You might guess that Tin Shed in Portland loves dogs just from looking at their brunch menu (which includes dishes called the Fetch, the Roll Over, the Good Dog and the Stay). The beloved Northeast Alberta Street cafe also welcomes dogs on the patio and has a pooch-specific menu. On Tuesday nights, your pet can enjoy a free item from the dog menu for each human-friendly dish you order. For happy hour, head to Lucky Labrador, one of Portland’s oldest dog-friendly brewpubs with multiple locations and host of the annual Dogtoberfest, a fundraising event and the city’s largest dog wash.
2. After cruising through the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, soak up the sunnyviews with a wood-fired pie at Solstice Wood Fire Pizza. The pet-friendly patio is adjacent to the waterfront in Hood River and has prime outdoor seating. After a bite, head across the street to watchkiteboarders, windsurfers and sailboats crisscross the Columbia River. Bonus: ample hiking and walking trails nearby. Stay the night at Hood River Hotel, canine-friendly, vintage lodging with cityscape and Columbia River views.
3. After a day of hiking, swimming and mountain biking around Bend, most pets and their humans kickback at one of the local breweries, where dogs are welcome to dine alfresco. Try the patio and a pint at 10 Barrel Brewing Co., Cascade Lakes Brewing Company, GoodLife Brewing Company and Crux Fermentation Project, to name only a few. Really, you can’t go wrong.
4. Yes, you can take your dog wine tasting in the Willamette Valley. Taste pinot with your pup on the patio at Keeler Estate Vineyard in Amity, Roots Wine Co. in Yamhill, or Sokol Blosser Winery in Dayton to name a few. Then savor farm-to-table fare alfresco at wine country destinations like The Dundee Bistro, Golden Valley Brewery & Restaurant, or La Rambla Restaurant & Bar. Glamp the night away with Fido at The Vintages Trailer Resort, which has a cluster of retro-luxe Airstreams set on 14 acres. Pro tip: You can search for dog-friendly tasting rooms all over the state at OregonWine.org.
