Walking Your Dog in City Limits
Your dog must be on a leash at all times. No
The City of Leavenworth also requires that you clean up after your pet in both summer and winter. Yes even in snow because children do play in the snow.
Watering Bowls (Summer)
Many business owners are good about putting out bowls of water for our visiting canine friends.
There are a few eating establishments and breweries that have outdoor seating where your pet is allowed to be with you at the table. Another great option for meals with a pet are our parks. There are two city parks that have picnic tables close to the downtown area. Waterfront Park (behind the downtown area) and Lions Club Park (next to the City Pool across the highway from town) ALWAYS check the park schedule as these parks can be reserved by groups.
Many of the hotels in town are pet-friendly. Even a few of the cabins and chalet-style are. However you must declare your pets at the time you make your reservation. If you don't you risk being turned away at the time of check in. This is important as hotels will often designate particular rooms as pet-friendly to accommodate guests with allergies.
Leavenworth has extreme temperature in both summer and winter.
Leaving your dog in the car is NEVER an option. Authorities are notified if animals are left in a car on hot or cold days. Most lodging properties do not permit animals alone in their guest rooms. So plan your vacation time in Leavenworth with this in mind as your pet would have to stay with you at all times.
Many shops do not allow dogs at all. There are a few that accept a small dog if they are carried at all times. They each have their own pet policy.
