Action News Top 6: Jessica Boyington visits the best doggy spots in Philadelphia

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) – Jake and Rocky, my Jack Russell Terriers, are back, helping me find the best places in Philadelphia for our canine companions!

salty paws in Rittenhouse Square is an ice cream shop and bakery for dogs!

Your pup can choose from shelves full of homemade donuts, bones, treats and toys…and he can invite some of his friends over for a dog party!

Of course, every decent party has great ice cream. They have several flavors to choose from, like “Blueberry Banana Barkarita” and “Cheddar Cheese,” with bacon, beef, turkey, and crumbled chicken for toppings.

Philadelphia Swim and Dog Sport Club at Northern Liberties is the perfect daycare destination for an active pup who loves hot summer days by the pool!

There is a wading pool for small dogs and a full size pool for larger breeds. Your pup can enjoy supervised play, splashing and diving all day.

good dog bar in the city center is the perfect stop for doggies with hungry humans!

The walls of the tiered bar are adorably decorated with a dog theme, covered in black-and-white photos of dogs from across the region.

I sat with the boys at a picnic table outside where they had ice water and treats…and sipped a Mezcal cocktail with watermelon puree called “Smoke on the Water”.

As for food, Good Dog Bar is famous for its burgers, but I suggest getting off the grill and jumping for the clams. They were bathed in a garlic butter and white wine sauce with shallots and sausage, and they were delicious!

The Mediterranean chicken skewers had the perfect char flavor, and the special flatbread with corn, pesto, arugula, onion and goat cheese was another favorite.
