It is SO hard for me to leave my house when I see all three of my dogs looking at me with those literal puppy eyes. I wish I could take with me them everywhere at all hours of the day, but unfortunately that is not looked upon too highly at my office. Seriously though, when is ‘take your pet to work day’ going to become a thing?! When it comes to the weekends and days off, I want to spend as much time as I can with my three main girls, and sometimes that means they accompany Shea and me around Baton Rouge.
So, if you are like me and enjoy your pups tagging along, this post is for you! I put together some of my favorite dog-friendly places where you can eat and play with your furry friends right here in the Capital City. This is by no means an extensive list of the only places you can hang with your best four-legged friends in Baton Rouge – just some of my personal favorites and places on my list to check out. If there is a spot you love to take your pups, please let me know in the comments below so I can continue to add to this list and further Chuy, Gracie and Jones’ out of the house experiences. Thank you in advance!

The ladies at local boutique Hey Penelope noticed how obsessed I am with my dogs and sent me their Fan of the Fur Babies tank to show my puppy pride. The best part is that 50% of the sales of this tank is donated to Friends of the Animals Baton Rouge. Since 2010, FOTA has found forever homes for OVER 2,000 animals in East Baton Rouge Parish. Y’all, that’s amazing! So, if you like to shop and you love puppies, get this tank or the newly released long sleeve version now! Do it. It’s for the puppies.
