In this post we are going to break down everything we know about pets in Dublin in full detail. We aren’t sure whether you are a current owner or are just thinking about it but either way there should be plenty of info here to help you plan your next move.
The best Dublin pet stores seem like the most logical starting point. You can buy toys, food, supplies and maybe even puppies or kittens at them so they will probably help the most readers out.
The top animal shelters in your area for dog or cat adoption will get the next section. Our next three topics will be for local dog lovers as they dive into dog parks, puppy trainers, and dog bakeries near you.
After that it will be grooming and dog or cat cafes around the area. There could be some out of towners reading so we will mention some good hotels that allow pets near you.
The best places for pet boarding in town will be discussed, and then we will finish it all off with unfortunate topics like veterinarians and dog or cat cremation services. Towards the end we will include a local map to help you figure out which places are closest to your current area. Check out all of our posts on Europe there if interested.
