You’re going out for food at the nearest restaurant. In the second you’re about to close the door you spot Fido. His eyes are begging you for letting him come along. It’s almost heartbreaking to leave him.
We’ve all been in this situation.
But it doesn’t have to be like that! Why not bring him? From hanging out at the local park to cooling down with a delicious refreshment – it’s just way more fun with your best friend by your side.
Even though some public places in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya discourage you to bring your dog, there are tons of pet-friendly locations to pick from. We have listed the 10 best dog-friendly cafes and parks in KL and PJ:
1. Desa ParkCity
The Waterfront at Desa ParkCity is a beautiful location. This spot is a favourite among many dog owners. The large area and all the running tracks allow mutual exercise or just a long colourful walk. Desa ParkCity is also the perfect place for your pup to socialize and make new friends while you relax.
And don’t worry, there’s also room for plenty of fun for owners. The park is surrounded by cosy cafes where you can bring your dog for a delicious snack and a quick rest.
During weekends, it’s common to see events and bazaars where dog owners can shop some delicious food, treats or the latest merch for their pup.
We have written more specifically about The Waterfront and Desa ParkCity Pet Bazaar in another blog post – you can check it out here.
Address: Desa Parkcity, 52200 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur
2. Central Park Bandar Utama
This is the only park in Klang Valley that allow dogs.
Central Park is located opposite the New Wing of 1 Utama Shopping Centre. However, Central Park is way less crowded than the huge shopping mall. The park offers long tracks surrounded by trees and a big nice lake. It’s a great place for you and your pup to walk around, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
If you go to the park on a weekend, I guarantee you that you will meet other dog owners. It’s a fantastic way for you and your dog to socialize.
You can also sign your dog up for obedience training if you think he needs some manners. That’s organized by Canine Sportzclub.

Poozie n’ Beach is a pet cafe/daycare/grooming service located in Sunway Nexis Kota Damansara.
And don’t let you fool by the Louis Vuitton-vibes from the outside – this posh place is actually for dogs, not handbags.
Pet-owners are loving Poozie n’ Beach and for a good reason. This pet cafe got it all – a lot of dogs, a nice atmosphere and a super friendly staff. Customers can bring their own food or order delivery and enjoy their meals while waiting for their furkids for grooming. And if your pup is extra well-behaved you can check out their selection of dog foods and snacks.
Poozie n’ Beach is also the only physical location in Klang Valley having PledgeCare air-dried dog food on their shelves.
