Vegas is certainly fun for people, but it's also great for pets, too. Not only are there a ton of pet friendly hotels in Las Vegas, there are also a lot of things you can do there with your dog, cat, or whatever pet you decide to bring along. Of course, many people go there for the obvious reasons—gambling, to get married (there are over 300 weddings per day) and just to be part of the glitz, decadence and glamour that that is Sin City. And, oh yeah, it has that nickname. But that doesn’t mean it’s not pet friendly. We think you’ll find that a little depraved fun and bringing your pet along aren’t mutually exclusive activities. As a matter of fact, we believe they complement each other perfectly and that if you take your pet to Las Vegas, it might be the best thing you ever did! Okay, maybe we’re getting carried away, but beyond all the pet friendly hotels in Las Vegas, here are some other reasons you should bring your favorite animal along.

First, if you’re a cat lover, Las Vegas has the largest bronze sculpture of a cat in the country. It’s right outside of the MGM Grand Hotel and weighs 50 tons. Yes, it’s a lion, but still, a lion is a cat, right? If you want to take in a show, we have a great suggestion. Check out the “World Famous” Popovich Comedy Pet Theater. It features clowns, juggling acts and more than 30 pets (all rescues), including not only dogs and cats but also a goat duo, as well as and Mr. Diamond, the miniature horse. While you can’t take your dog to the show, maybe sneak in a little video to show him later (we didn’t say that….). If you want to feel rich and important then hit the town with Omni Limousine , a pet friendly limo service. Pets must be in a crate, so it’ll work best for smaller dogs and cats. Omni offers service from airports as well as sightseeing tours and nights out on the town.

While Vegas often conjures up visions of spending days inside a dark casino, if you’ve got your dog along you’re going to want to get some exercise. We highly recommend the Echo Canyon-Fossil Ridge Loop which is a 4.3 mile pet friendly trail that is a great place to get out for a walk with your pooch (on a leash). Also, check out the Summerlin Cottonwood Canyon Park Loop which is a 1.7 mile paved trail that surrounded by homes but offers privacy and beautiful wildflowers along the path.

Las Vegas also has some of most dog parks per capita, including the Woofter Family Dog Park , The Clark County Dog Fancier’s Park (we like the name), and Bark Basin Park.

While in Vegas, you and your pet are going to need to eat and drink, correct? At petswelcome, we always search for pet friendly restaurants and bars in a city by looking for ones that are named after animals (pretty clever, eh?). In Las Vegas we found Big Dog’s Brewing Company that has a patio that allows pets. Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar also has a pet friendly patio AND a Dog Menu, offering grilled hamburgers, chicken, and brown rice. If a café and wine bar are more your style, check out the Grape Street Café which allows dogs on their patio.

Finally, you’re going to need a pet friendly hotel to stay in at Las Vegas—and there are plenty of them. Check out our pet friendly hotel listings below.
