Pet-Friendly Pulaski

Being on vacation shouldn’t mean that you have to leave behind the furry members of your family. Pulaski County welcomes you and your pets to stay at one of our pet-friendly locations so you can explore our beautiful Ozark Mountains and rich history.

Pet-Friendly Stay

We realize the importance of having a hotel that fits your needs, including the need to be pet friendly. With over ten different pet-friendly options, our hotels can focus on helping meet other needs, such as being budget-friendly, serving breakfast, or even providing an indoor pool, making it easy to pick the right stay for you.

Looking for a cozy cottage on the river, close to scenic walking and hiking trails? Pulaski County has several outfitters that would love to host you and your pets, all while providing great floating and fishing opportunities on both the Big Piney and Gasconade Rivers.

Gone Walking

Each town offers a variety of fun and historic sights to see, along with excellent photo opportunities, allowing you to turn the chore of pet walking into a memorable experience. Stroll along Historic Route 66 in St. Robert and Waynesville, enjoy Pulaski’s vast collection of murals, follow the Frisco Railroad through Crocker, Dixon, and Richland, and so much more!

Visit the George M. Reed Roadside Park in St. Robert, and enjoy a picnic with family, furry or otherwise. Then make a stop at the St. Robert Dog Park and let your dog off the leash for a while. Other places of interest include the City of Saint Robert Welcome Sign, the Military Rock Display along Saint Robert Boulevard, and Uranus, Missouri.

Waynesville offers amazing sights and photo opportunities! Enjoy beautiful Roubidoux Park and grab a bite to eat at the Roubidoux Streatery before heading down to the river. See Downtown Waynesville and learn its history with our Historic Downtown Waynesville Walking Tour! Snap a picture of the Old Stagecoach Stop or grab a selfie with the giant Route 66 Sign in front of the 1903 Courthouse Museum.

Catching sight of the bright red Caboose at Frisco Park is a sure-fire way to know you have made it to Crocker. The Crocker Railroad Depot Museum is another place to stop for a great photo before heading to your next stop.  Richland’s Shady Dell Park is a great place to take a break and let your pet play for a while. It’s also a great place to begin searching for the various murals around the area, starting with the Shady Dell Park Mural! Continue the mural hunt in Dixon and see the story of the Frisco Railroad as you explore.
