Get out and about with your best friend this summer...

When visiting Launceston for the first time, many people are excited by the amount of dogs they see around! Dog owners in the city are spoiled for choice for places to take their pooches along for brunch or coffee, and staff members of local cafes are often thrilled to have a fluffy visitor.

Read on for a list of places dog lovers can enjoy with or without Fido- but keep in mind that this list is nowhere near comprehensive! If you want to take your dog to a venue you're not sure of, just give the business a call.
