My family moved to Bentonville in August 2021 and we’re loving it here! This of course includes our two dogs, one of which is pictured above. Bentonville is a very dog-friendly city, and was named a top city to visit with your dog in 2019. Here are some places you can bring your dog when you visit Bentonville together.
Three Dog Bakery
Your dog will love visiting Three Dog Bakery. The bakery offers seasonal treats, gourmet dog pastries, stylish supplies like new leashes and collars, and more. Fresh treats and pastries are accompanied by an ingredient list so you know exactly what you’re giving your dog. More info here.
Osage Park is one of Bentonville’s newest attractions. Explore the boardwalks that take you through the 12-acre wetland ecosystem at this outdoor escape. There’s even a 2-acre dog park for your pooch to enjoy! More info here.
