The reviews you write on Google Maps don’t just help other people—they also help their furry friends! Pet owners look to the reviews you leave on Google Maps to find great places to go with their pets in tow.
So, next time you’re at one of the places below, be sure to include helpful tips for them in your review.
Many hotels do not allow pets, but the few hotels that do have different rules and restrictions. Some may charge hefty fees or require that you pay for the hotel’s pet-sitter when you’re out of the room. Others may offer special amenities for pets like treats and outdoor spaces. In your review, share details about how the hotel treats guests with pets.
Bars and Restaurants
Some bars and restaurants may allow pets—particularly if there’s an outdoor seating area. They may even go out of their way to make pet owners feel welcome by offering water bowls or treats. Most, however, do not, which can make it hard for pet owners to find places to go. In your reviews, highlight the bars and restaurants that are pet-friendly.
While it’s clear that dogs are welcome, dog parks can range from a simple fenced-in space to an expansive compound with multiple sections and amenities. Are there designated areas for dogs of different sizes? Is it clean and well-maintained? What are the best times to go? In your review, include specific information that would help dog owners choose a park that their pup will love.
Next time you go pick something up for your pet, take some time to add a review that can help other pet owners. Is this your favorite pet store? Why? Include information about the selection of treats and toys, store hours, and store size. If the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, add that detail to your review, too.
Some people are just now starting their pet journey—and they’re not sure where to look! If you’ve been to a pet rescue, write a review that explains the size, cleanliness, and types of animals that they have. Add details that tell others whether or not the place provides a comprehensive history for its pets and be sure to share what you thought of the staff. You can also include photos of individual animals that are available for adoption, especially if the rescue is overcrowded. You may just help an animal find a new home!
