PET FRIENDLY Georgetown University

O Street NW
Washington, DC 20057

Georgetown University was founded by Jesuits in 1789 and, like Yale University, has a bulldog as its mascot. And Georgetown's bulldog is named Jack. This wasn't originally case. The nickname for Georgetown's sports teams is the "Hoyas" but in 1962 the students adopted the bulldog as mascot, and promptly acquired a two-year-old English bulldog they had intended to call "Hoya." That indeed was the intent but the dog refused to answer to anything but "Jack."

There have been numerous Jacks since 1962, the most recent having taken up residence in 2013 as a puppy and who is still active in his mascot duties, which include skateboarding across the basketball court during games. Georgetown has a Bulldog Advisory Committee composed of alumni, students, and faculty to ensure the bulldog tradition continues. We say, three bow wows to that!

Georgetown is a great neighborhood to explore with your pet, as is the entire D.C. area, whether you're window shopping or taking advantage of one of the many pet friendly restaurants. Not surprisingly, we love Wet Dog Tavern, which calls itself "DC's 1st Pet Friendly Bar Garden." It's got a wonderful outdoor seating area that feels more like someone's super comfortable but also stylish living room. Wet Dog is definitely about the booze, with eight beers on tap and more than 30 brands of whiskey/bourbon/Scotch available; food is limited to burgers. You're going to want to stay awhile.

If food is primary, you can't do any better than Dacha Beer Garden. In addition to its craft beers, meads, ciders, and wines, it offers a menu that is guaranteed to satisfy, with selections like Chicken Schnitzel Sandwich and Cabrito Poutine, made with braised goat and drizzled with stout gravy.

And when your pet is finally ready to cut loose, take advantage of one of the many dog parks in Washington, D.C. Guy Mason Dog Park is probably the closest one to Georgetown, and has a water fountain and shaded seating for humans.
