If you do not already know, dogs love to be outside. Not just out of the house, but to go to different places where they can meet other dogs and get pets from strangers. They just want to be loved and want to spread love. That is why they are a delight to be around. And what is a better idea than to be around more dogs?
Here are 10 places, divided between Open Spaces and Cafés/Restaurants, where you can bring your fur babies for some food and fun!
Plaza Arkadia combines the best of both worlds for pet owners. What makes this a great place to bring your dog is because it is likely that it is good for you too. There are plenty of shops if you want to go shopping, and a ton of restaurants that allow dogs and cats within their premises. It is not so open air as an actual park, but there is more the place can offer than just a wide field.
Location: Plaza Arkadia, Jalan Residen 3, Desa ParkCity, 52200 Kuala Lumpur
The Central Park
If we are talking about open spaces, The Central Park at Desa ParkCity wins outright. With so much space for your dog to explore, and for owners to bike, run and take in nature, The Central Park has a good chance of becoming your usual Sunday haunt. Nothing is better than being outside with your dog, where they can just be themselves and play with other dogs too!
Location: The Central Park, 3 Persiaran Residen, Desa ParkCity, 52200 Kuala Lumpur
Once you are done with the open spaces in Central Park, just hop on to The Waterfront. This place is just a few minutes' walk from the field (or depending on how tired you are after doing zoomies with your dog) and has all the amenities you could want after a day under the sun.
Location: The Waterfront, 5 Persiaran Residen, Desa ParkCity, 52200 Kuala Lumpur
Setia Eco Park
Setia Eco Park in Selangor is what a family destination in the city looks like. It is not so far of a drive, but when you get there, you would not believe that you are still in PJ. There are playgrounds, ponds, restaurants, and, for your furry little friends, all the open space they could want. As a popular spot among pet owners, it is likely that your dog will meet new friends in this paradise of blue and green.
Location: Setia Eco Park, 40170 Shah Alam, Selangor
Let us call The Square for what it is: a mall. But, its layout makes it an open-air attraction for families. And when it comes to pet-friendliness, no one can match this place. They have a doggy school in the premises, and dogs are often part of their social media campaigns. They really get what pet owners want to see, and that is so refreshing.
Location: The Square, Blok E, Jalan Profesor Diraja Ungku Aziz, Pjs 13, 46200 Petaling Jaya
At first look, The Barn really does not seem like a place that allows dogs, even outside. But, this neo wine bar is as friendly to dogs as they are to customers. If dogs can only appreciate moods and vibes, they would love this place even more.
Oh, who are we kidding? Dogs can sense vibes.
Location: The Barn, The Waterfront @ Parkcity, 5, Persiaran Residen, Desa Parkcity, 52200 Kuala Lumpur
Clawset is not just a human café. If you look at their socials, you would think that they cater exclusively to pets. Fret not, owners, because this is simply a super pet-friendly establishment where your pet can make new friends. This is a dog’s happy place and, if you give it a chance, it could be your happy place too!
Location: Clawset, 36-A, Jalan SS 22/25, Damansara Jaya, 47400 Petaling Jaya
Cubs & Cups
As their name suggests, Cubs & Cups caters to dogs. But, this place could be an out-and-out restaurant with their globe-trotting cuisine coverage. Brunch, Korean, breakfast, rice meals, sandwiches; you name it, they got it. As always, though, the highlight of the place are the dogs that make this one of the happiest places in KL.
Location: Cubs & Cups, 22, Jalan 30/70a, Desa Sri Hartamas, 50480 Kuala Lumpur
Kwong Cheung Loong Kopitiam Bar
You can tell that some places just love having dogs around, which is the case with Kwong Cheung Loong. The spirit of the place is convivial, and dogs love being around that kind of vibe. Their menu is quite extensive, too, so there is no shortage of F&B options that will run long into the night should you choose to stay late in the place.
Location: Kwong Cheung Loong Kopitiam Bar, 34-G, Jalan Doraisamy, Chow Kit, 50300 Kuala Lumpur
Kopenhagen Coffee is a dog-friendly café that takes its coffee seriously. But, unlike the other entries on this list, this is a place where you can unwind with your dog after a day out. They will certainly appreciate the surfaces that will help them cool down their bodies. While your pets do that, you might want to check out their menu for excellent eats.
Location: Kopenhagen Coffee, Vista Kiara, Shoplot 7, 6 7, Jalan Kiara 3, 50480 Kuala Lumpur
