#10 Boston, MA
It is wicked cool to have Bean Town kickoff our list of top cities. As home to the American Revolution, it is no surprise to find that Boston was the first major city to allow dogs on their subway. Even cruises of historic Boston Harbor aren’t off limits to our furry friends, which include a stop at an uninhabited island for exploration and, well, relief. Liberty Hotel plays weekly host to Yappier Hour with treats and pup-tini’s provided by The Fish & Bone, a local independent pet supply store. Dog access to historic sites abounds, and the number of pet-friendly hotels and restaurants lists in the dozens. And, although leash-free parks are few, a short journey to Carson Beach provides plenty of room to play.
Everything we do sends a message to our pet. Did you know that giving your dog affection at the wrong time can send the wrong message and worsen unwanted behavior? Giving affection during desired behaviors is an important thing to remember.
