There are several ways you can save money on your monthly pet-friendly dining and restaurants expenses. Here are some tips:

  1. Take advantage of happy hour specials: Many restaurants offer discounted prices on food and drinks during happy hour. Check if these specials are available at pet-friendly establishments and plan your visits accordingly.
  2. Look for pet-friendly restaurants with low-cost options: Some restaurants have a separate menu with affordable items. Search for these establishments and focus on ordering from their budget-friendly options.
  3. Bring your own doggie bag: If you have leftovers from your meal that are safe for your pet to consume, ask for a take-out container and bring them home for your furry friend. It eliminates the need to buy separate pet meals.
  4. Explore outdoor dining options: Outdoor seating is often dog-friendly and provides a lovely dining experience for you and your pet. By choosing outdoor spaces, you can avoid paying for indoor dining costs.
  5. Subscribe to restaurant loyalty programs or mailing lists: Sign up for loyalty programs or mailing lists of pet-friendly restaurants. These establishments often offer exclusive discounts, promotions, or coupons to members.
  6. Use pet-friendly dining apps or websites: There are apps and websites specifically dedicated to finding pet-friendly dining options. Some of these platforms offer special deals, discounts, or even freebies for pet owners. Utilize these resources to save money.
  7. Share dishes with your pet: Instead of ordering separate meals for yourself and your pet, consider ordering a single dish that both of you can enjoy. Pay attention to the ingredients to ensure it is safe for your pet, and check with the restaurant if they allow sharing food with animals.
  8. Plan your visits during off-peak times: Some restaurants have special promotions or discounts during weekdays, lunch hours, or non-peak times. Take advantage of these periods when prices are lower.
  9. Bring your own water and treats: Avoid purchasing bottled water for your pet by carrying your own portable water dispenser. Additionally, bringing your own pet treats can help save money on desserts or separate pet-friendly snacks.
  10. Consider cooking homemade pet meals: Occasionally, you may want to dine out without your pet. During these times, save money by cooking homemade pet meals instead of ordering takeout or going to pet-friendly restaurants.


Remember that saving money should not compromise your pet's health or safety. Ensure any food you share with your pet is suitable for their dietary needs, and always prioritize their well-being.
