During the brisk Cleveland winters, having activities to do indoors is essential to ensure you are comfortable, and, most of all, warm. But just because you plan to move your activities indoors does not mean you have to leave your dog at home!
With that in mind, here are a few businesses local to the Cleveland area that we recommend if you’re looking to bring your furry friend along during the colder winter months!
Located alongside the Cuyahoga River, Brick and Barrel is a taphouse known for its house-brewed ales and wines, as well as its “beer-centric” décor. This brewery is also known for hosting a variety of events, such as food pop-ups, and, of course, Browns watch parties on Sundays.
So, if you’re looking for a place to take your furry friend and enjoy the authentic atmosphere that the west side of Cleveland has to offer, this is the place to be!

With locations scattered across the city of Cleveland, as well as neighboring northeast Ohio suburbs, Rising Star Coffee Roasters is the perfect place to take your pet and enjoy a fresh cup of joe. This local establishment’s specialty coffees include blends from South and Central America, Indonesia, and Africa, and are also available in wholesale bags if you would like to take some fresh beans back home with you!
Whether you are looking to order a quick pick-me-up while running errands, want to sit and get some work done, or need to take some time to catch up with friends, we highly recommend this Cleveland favorite!
Leashed pups welcome! Milo & Me is a pet-friendly local business on Cleveland’s west side, and unlike other pet stores, this boutique-inspired business offers a variety of dog toys, treats, and apparel, as well as women’s clothing and accessories.
Overall, Milo & Me is a fabulous option for Cleveland natives looking to spoil their companion on a chilly winter afternoon with some shopping and delicious treats!
Located on the east side of the city, the Van Aken District Indoor Winter Market in Shaker Heights is offered each Saturday from January through March. The indoor market is a great alternative for those looking to ditch the cold winter weather and indulge in the offerings of over 20 Ohio farms, bakeries, and artists. All in all, the Van Aken District is the place to visit with your pooch on a chilly Saturday morning.

What is more Cleveland than the CLE Clothing Co.? Offering cool and unique apparel that represents all things Cleveland football, baseball, basketball, and more, the CLE Clothing Co. has endless options for you to choose from!
Best yet, the apparel shop is completely pet-friendly, so taking your furry friend inside while you are running errands at Crocker Park in Westlake or Summit Mall in Akron is no problem!
Looking to take your furry friend into one of these pet-friendly establishments? Here are some things to keep in mind before doing so:
It is also important to keep in mind that each business may have different indoor pet policies. If you’re ever unsure if your dog can be included as your plus one indoors, we recommend calling each place in question before visiting to make sure. If not, you can easily drop them off at our Cleveland Pet Palace location for doggy day care!
