Visit the Dog Friendly Hotels on the Strip

While reading ahead, please note that there will be an abundance of dog puns as we take paws to explore the Las Vegas Strip’s pet policies and the dog friendly hotels on the Strip.

While it’s no surprise that people regularly search for family-friendly hotels in Las Vegas, “family” might mean something different to some people. For many, it includes family members of the four-legged, cold-nosed, belly-rub loving and furry variety. With the knowledge that more than 70% of households in the United States have pets, the city that never sleeps is more than happy to accommodate with policies that welcome dogs at a majority of Strip resorts.

Pet-Friendly Policies in Strip Hotels

Policies vary from hotel to hotel, but On The Strip has compiled a comprehensive overview at many of the pet-friendly Vegas hotels. Some locations are even welcoming to cats, making them even more pet-friendly.

There are many things to consider when bringing Fido along for your Vegas vacation, and that’s where the all-important hotel policies come in. Many properties have restrictions when it comes to things like the weight of your dog, how many dogs you can bring, if they can be left unattended in rooms, leashes and more. That said, there are also some impressive extras that should be considered including doggy-fare on the room service menus, pet-sitting and walking services through dedicated outdoor areas, just to name a few.

Of course, the fees range greatly when it comes to dog friendly hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. These fees include non-refundable payments and refundable damage deposits, because they understand that pit-happens.

Size and Number Requirements

The first thing to think about is the weight of your dog. If you’re a dog mom—or dad—to a Marmaduke-esque pooch you will encounter several more limitations than your Toto-sized counterparts. But not to fear, this is Vegas.

All pet-friendly resorts note a limit of two or less pets per room, which is something else to consider. Don’t try to go in-corg-nito and sneak in a third. And even though Vegas loves dogs, there are rules in place for a reason and you might risk a hefty fine. 

All pets must be well-behaved, potty trained and keep barking to a minimum Any signs of aggressive or destructive behaviors and the hotel management reserves all rights to have you—and your pet—removed from the hotel without a refund.

Here’s the dish on some of the most fetch dog friendly hotels on the Vegas Strip.

Caesars Entertainment

Bally’s Las Vegas, Caesars Palace, The Cromwell, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, LINQ Hotel + Experience, Paris Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood and Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino

Outside of Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace, all Caesars Entertainment properties are dog friendly through their PetStay Program. Policies are consistent for each of the aforementioned properties, but the rates vary. Generally, there is a maximum of two dogs per room and they must weigh under 50 pounds each. They are welcome in common areas if leashed and with their owner, but must be crated when left unattended in a room.

To guarantee yourself a pet-friendly room, you must select a PetStay room when making your reservation. And because there are a limited number of PetStay rooms at each property, it is recommended to book well in advance of your trip. You should also expect to pay a slightly higher nightly rate for a PetStay room than you would for a standard room of the same type.

Pet parents should expect to introduce their dogs at hotel check-in and pay a refundable incidental deposit for their guest room. Pet amenities including food, water dishes, waste bags, and treats are included while staying on property. You will definitely want to familiarize yourself with the designated pet relief area. There is at least one at each Caesars Entertainment property, and take advantage of their crate-rental service if you left yours at home as dogs are required to be crated when left unattended in the room or when housekeeping visits.

This means welcoming the husky-est of dog breeds including those up to 100 pounds. Dogs are welcome at all of the MGM Resorts properties in Las Vegas with the exception of ARIA.

Some MGM Resorts add-on services for your pets deserving of a round of a-paws include scheduled “check-ins” for where an MGM Grand team member will stop by your room for ten minutes to make sure your furry friend is doing okay while you’re out. They will even snap a picture and text it to you for peace-of mind. Pets often feel anxiety when outside of the comfort zone of their home. What better way to make them feel at ease than with a “Buddy’s Box”? Each box includes treats, toys and a bandana to help them enjoy their vacation.

And because a trip to Las Vegas can be busy, busy, busy, you may not have the time needed to promenade with your pooch. Not to worry, the MGM Grand Concierge will arrange dog walking or sitting services on your behalf.

Planning Your Dog Friendly Vegas Trip

Now that you’re in Vegas enjoying Sin City with your mutt-ley crew, there are a few things you should know.

It gets hot in Las Vegas, and you are not going to find many patches of grass on the Las Vegas Strip. Consider your pooch’s paws when taking them out on walks and try to do so during the cooler times of the day. On those sun-up to sun-down 100 plus degree days consider Muttluks or a similar brand of dog shoe. While most dogs might certainly prefer to go barefoot, these will protect the pads on their feet from weather so hot you can cook an egg on the sidewalk. Also, be sure to pack water, for both you and for Fido.

Pay close attention to the time because the Las Vegas Strip is not pet friendly from 12 p.m. to 5 a.m. It’s actually prohibited to take your dog for a walk at this time from Sahara Avenue to Sunset Road, basically the entire Strip, and within 200 yards on each side of the Las Vegas Blvd roadway. You can only take pets out on a leash no longer than three feet long from 5 a.m. to noon on this stretch. Check the tourist pet ordinance for any further questions.
