11 more dog-friendly parks and beer gardens around DC

Spend your summer dog days with your duck (and lots of water and shade!) On one of these kids-friendly premises around DC. Many of these places range from puppy ice cream, dog beer — yes, that’s it — and even out-of-play playgrounds. Also, National Dog Day is coming up on August 26, and we have some ideas on how to honor our beloved hairy friends.
