Kiki at Osage Park

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.

Does your dog frequently get the zoomies? As long as your dog meets the requirements, feel free to take them to Bentonville Bark Park, located at 2400 N Walton Blvd, Bentonville, AR 72712 to burn off their extra energy. More info here.


Moosejaw is a pet-friendly outdoor adventure retail store located on the Bentonville square. When you bring your dog in, they’ll take its picture and add it to their dog wall of fame! More info here.
