Maine Hosts the Ultimate Street Food Tour for Dogs and Owners

If you live in New England, then you’re in for a real treat. Kennebunkport on the Maine Coast is running a street food tour aimed specifically at dog owners!

It’s time to get to Kennebunkport and take your pooch with you for the ultimate street food tour. The tour runs every Saturday until October and takes in some great foodie stops on the way. One of the highlights of the tour, run by Main Foodie Tours is Federal Jack’s Restaurant and Brew Pub. As the name suggests, you’ll get to relax with a delicious craft beer, while your dog enjoys peanut butter dog biscuits!

Further along the route you’ll make a pit stop at HB Provisions, where there’s ice cream for you, and also for your dog. Yours comes with a generous helping of whoopee pie, and the doggy ice cream is topped with a bone shaped biscuit – OM NOM NOM!

If you and your dog are still not full up, don’t worry, there are plenty more treats along the way for both of you. There’s chewy saltwater taffy at The Candyman and coconut and cranberry clusters with white cheddar bark pops at Scalawags Pet Emporium.

A trip to Kennebunkport is a must for any dog owner. The town is just so welcoming to our furry friends. As well as this awesome tour, there’s plenty more to attract pet lovers. A visit to the Colony Hotel during their season-ending weekend can see you dining with your dog in their dining room and they’ll even let your dog swim in their beach club pool! Or you could stay at the Captain Jefferds Inn which has five dog friendly rooms complete with water bowls and dog treats.

The Doggy and Me tour is a fantastic trip out and great value for money. You’ll be touring for up to two hours at a cost of just $34 per person. Even if you’re out without your dog, you can still take the tour and just take the doggy treats home with you. It’s certainly worth it, especially as the proceeds of the tour are being donated to a really good cause, the Animal Welfare Society of West Kennebunk.
