We’re lucky to live, work and play in West Chester, Ohio. Our town is home to many great spots and is well-known for our love of dogs. But that doesn’t mean our furbabies are allowed to visit every business in town. Here are a few spots though where you and your pups are always welcome! 

Wiggly Field

If you’ve lived in West Chester a while, you probably know about Wiggly Field Dog Park in Voice of America MetroPark. This park is such a great spot for pups and their parents it’s also made a few all-Cincinnati lists as a great place for singles to get dates! Located near the Athletic Field Complex, Wiggly is actually two separate dog parks: one for smaller dogs and one for larger dogs, and both are fenced in. Packed with plenty of benches and shaded spots, the park’s attention to rules makes is part of what makes it great. Dogs must remain next to owners, but they don’t have to remain on a leash as long as the owner is carrying a leash. And other pet parents are likely to ask those with aggressive dogs to find another spot to play.

The Cone

The Cone is another West Chester institution that is a perfect spot for dogs. Located at the corner of Tylersville and Cincinnati-Dayton Rd., the Cone is so dog-friendly there’s even a giant plastic one on its roof. While technically rules are no dogs since it’s a restaurant, it’s tough to drive by and not see a few well-behaved pups and their parents enjoying some treats in its outdoor seating area. Some other restaurants with outdoor areas are often packed with pups as well, but in our experience, it can be hit or miss if that day’s staff or other patrons on the patios will tolerate your pup sitting next to you at your table.

Troy’s Café

Troy’s Café on Smith Road is another spot that always allows well-behaved pups in their outdoor seating area. Known for its amazing Cuban sandwich, Troy’s is a chef-driven spot that focuses on dishes made with seasonal, local ingredients. Run by Troy and his wife, Tania, the couple has created a restaurant that serves fresh, upscale-tasting food in a casual atmosphere. It’s also kid-friendly and has a great kid’s menu.

Lucky Dog Grille

Just down the road in Mason, Lucky Dog Grille absolutely allows your well-behaved pup to sit with you in its outdoor seating area. Known for its delicious dry rubbed, smoked wings and ample craft beers, this spot is a great option when you want a casual dinner or lunch. Serving everything from burgers and wraps to salads, tacos and even baked fish, everyone at your table can find something to enjoy.

Of course, you and your furbabies are always welcome at Dog Day, Every Day in West Chester! Please give us a call at 513-860-3647 to talk with us about your doggie daycare or grooming needs!

We know you love your dogs, but you might not be a fan of how quickly they can destroy a toy. Whether it’s out of excitement, curiosity or over-playing with their new obsession, some dogs are natural power chewers. And while dog owners are thrilled when we bring something home our pups love, it’s normal to feel a ping of regret that the toy you spent money on is ruined within hours. Here are a few of our favorite indestructible dog toys.


Pet parents of power chewers probably already love the Nylabone line of nylon “bones,” but did you know they also make toys? Check out the Power Chew Double Action Chew Toy that is soft enough for carrying yet durable enough for chewing. Also, check out the Power Chew Double Action Ball and the Power Chew Dental Dinosaur for a little variety. All of these products freshen your pup’s breath and massage their gums. Talk a win/win/win!


Many manufacturers claim their toys are indestructible, but GoughNuts guarantees it. They’ve even built indicator lights into its toys that turn red if the toy becomes compromised. The toys are also easy to clean, float in water and are recyclable. The original GoughNut is shaped like, well, a doughnut (hence the name), but they also make sticks and balls.

Planet Dog

Another one of our favorite manufacturers, Planet Dog’s products are durable, eco-friendly and made in the USA. For power chewers though, its Orbee Tuff line is among the best. Its simple fetch ball, available in green or pink, is great for tossing or self-play in or out of the water. If you’re like us and not fans of stepping on dog toys in the dark, try its Luna ball, which glows in the dark. 


The folks who started Kong are also pet parents of power chewers so they understand what you need. While they don’t make fun balls or chew toys, the Kong Extreme line might just be what your pup needs. Its erratic bounce will throw your dog off a bit, which in our experience helps makes for a toy that keeps your pup’s interest longer.

Fluffy Paws

Your dog loves a squeaky toy, right? Problem is, they last about an hour. And you have to watch them closely because the pieces that actually squeak are a choking hazard. We feel your pain. When nothing but a squeaky toy will do, try Fluffy Paws Durable Bone-Shaped Toy. It lasts much longer than other squeakers, but that’s about the best you can hope for with this style of toy.

We hope this list of toys brings your pup happiness and exercise and saves you some stress. Those are our goals at Dog Day, Every Day, too! Please give us a call at 513-860-3647 to talk with us about your doggie daycare or grooming needs!
