City Editor Kyle here. Sometimes I can’t stand the thought of leaving my good boy, Pinto at home. Thankfully, Greenville is pretty dog-friendly and has a handful of spots where you and your pup can enjoy an outing together.  

To help you figure out the best pro-puppy places around town, we scoured Bring Fido (DYK its headquarters are right here in GVL?) + selected a handful of the top bars and breweries, restaurants, coffee shops, and dog parks worth a tail-wag and Pinto-approved

Pro Tip: Be sure to check out our guide to dog etiquette in GVL before hitting the city with your canine friends.
