Walking Your Dog in City Limits
Leavenworth is a pet-friendly community!
There are a few eating establishments that have outdoor seating where your pet is allowed.
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 very 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 if you travel with a pet.
Many shops do not allow dogs. They each have their own pet policy.
