Bend is known as ‘Dog Town, USA’ for a reason. You and your pooch will love the plan for this day, starting with a walk on the Deschutes River Trail, where you can see wildlife, whitewater and wagging friends. After your lunch at Café Yumm! on the dog-friendly patio, make a quick stop by the dog mural on the wall of Strictly Organic Coffee, then cross the bridge and go through the tunnel to the dog park right on the river, perfect for a cooling dip and some extremely personal sniffing (if you’re into that). Try a treat just for dogs and hit up the Bend Pet Express for Dawg Grog, the four-legged version of Bend’s beer scene. If your people forgot anything you might need, you can also pick up a sparkly new collar, treats or a squeaky toy because you’re a good dog! But are you a dirty dog? Muddy Paws Bathhouse is right next door. Put a bone on the day with a float down the Deschutes to cool off on the dog days of summer.
