National Dog Day is Saturday, Aug. 26. Celebrate your four-legged best friend at any of these five establishments.
Beachcraft is celebrating all dogs through the end of August.

Dog-Day Afternoons
Beachcraft is celebrating dogs in a big way by inviting canines to sprawl out on the restaurant’s outdoor patio and enjoy a free top-notch meal from now through the end of August. The eatery is offering two specialty dishes for Fido, including the All-American Dog, a chicken liver and bacon treat topped with a ketchup glaze, and the Paleo Pup Plate, made with raw beef, carrots, celery and blueberries. 1 Hotel South Beach, 2395 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.604.6700

Ruff Life
As the only dog-friendly establishment with a complete doggy menu in Miami, Lokal Burgers & Beer is the place to go when hanging out with your hound is at the top of your weekend agenda. While you enjoy a juicy burger, your best friend can munch on Marmaduke’s Meatloaf ($5) or Yeyo’s Chicken & Rice ($5). Let that furry darling wash it all down with Bowser Beer ($5), a non-alcoholic ale specially made for dogs. 3190 Commodore Plaza, Coconut Grove, 305.442.3377

Fetch Forward
After a day of shopping on Lincoln Road, grab a table at Meat Market’s umbrella-lined patio and enjoy lunch with your best friend. The must-have dish for Fido? The eatery’s six-ounce filet mignon ($27), which can be customized to suit his or her palate. An added bonus: This is the best people-watching perch on the promenade. 915 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305.532.0088

Trick and Treat
Heading to Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink for brunch or happy hour? There’s no need to leave your pup behind. The Design District favorite welcomes dogs at its outdoor courtyard and even offers them a freshly baked treat made with organic ingredients. 30 NE 40th St., Miami, 305.573.5550

Bad to the Bone
While owners head to Shake Shack for cheeseburgers and frozen custard, it’s the Pooch-ini ($4) that your furry pal will drool over. The signature treat is made with ShackBurger dog biscuits, peanut butter sauce and vanilla custard—so good, it makes tails wag until the last lick. 1111 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305.434.7787
