The Blake Hotel New Orleans is proud to be a pet-friendly hotel, and there are plenty of ways to spend time with Fido in the Crescent City.

Dat Dog
What better way to hang out with your dog than while enjoying a hot dog? Dat Dog, a New Orleans hot dog chain, has several locations throughout the city, each of which is very dog-friendly.

Order yourself a gourmet hot dog and tots inside while your pet sips on some water in one of the many water bowls provided on the outdoor patios. You can even order a hot dog without a bun for your puppy to enjoy. Plus, many other fabulous restaurants in the Big Easy offer patio seating, perfect for dining al fresco with your canine companion.

Lafayette Square
New Orleans may be a big city, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in green space. Just across the street, enjoy taking your pet for a walk in Lafayette Square. Take your furry friend along the path in the park for a leisurely stroll or explore the greenery off the path.

City Bark Dog Park
Located inside of City Park is NOLA’s City Bark. This is a nearly five acre off-leash dog park that has separate areas of play for big and small dogs. With this separation, all dogs have a place to safely play. City Bark even has water fountains for your pooch.
