We love our dogs. Which makes us just about par for the course as Provincetown goes. This town is so pet-friendly, you’d be hard-pressed to find a business that doesn’t embrace the four-legged furries with gusto and a loving back scratch. If you are planning a trip to Ptown with your dog, check out our “cottages”. We’ve got two that are available for our pet-loving guests. I put cottages in quotes cause as you’ll see, there’s really nothing cottage-y about them. Free-standing, these little houses are packed with just as much fun and beauty and decadence as all of our other rooms. Here are some suggestions on the practicalities: where to go, what to do, etc.
Health & Emergency Services
Need an animal hospital? The Herring Cove Animal Hospital is right next to us on Shank Painter Road. Another great animal hospital is Ark Angel Animal Hospital is “just up the street” on Route 6 in Wellfleet with weekend and after hours available
Don’t Miss the “Nature” Things
Plenty of great hikes (Race Point Lighthouse and the Beech Forest Trail are two of my favs), the Cape Cod National Seashore, and all of the beaches. Dogs can roam leash-free at any of Ptown’s town beaches. It’s the only town on Cape Cod that allows it.
Your dog might like Commercial Street just as much as you do. The food (tons of dog-friendly restaurants with outdoor patios, check out a list and reviews here), people-watching, noises, smells, fellow canines, and treats at almost every business—seems like doggy heaven to me.
Goods & Goodies
Whether it’s a canine life jacket, raw food and healthy treats, or quite possibly the cutest little doggie cookies you’ve ever seen, you can find it all at Provincetown Pet Resort & Supply. They also offer boarding and daycare.
Socialize & Exercise
Any Provincetown visit with a dog must include a stop at Pilgrim Bark Park, an acre of open space to run, jump and play. Populated with sculptures created by local artists, the park is open year-round and even has a special section for small dogs (under 25 lbs.).
