Dog-owners, check out these places!
For some reason, not all parks welcome pets. And needless to say, not all shopping malls are pet-friendly either. We don’t want you heading to a place with your beloved furkid to just be shooed away. So, here’s a list of pet-friendly spots in Makati where you can bring your dog for a walk, worry-free.

If you bring your dog here for a walk, no problem!—as long as your dog is properly leashed. Your dog will definitely enjoy walking or playing on the grass while you sip on a coffee or grab some snacks in one of the restaurants. Just be sure to bring a snack for your dog, too!
