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 16 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.

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.
