Chile is a pet-friendly nation, and Santiago has numerous households with both cats and dogs as pets. All dogs must be registered at the local municipality; the registration can be done at the local office or online. 

All pet dogs must be well-fed and exercised. Remember to keep your dog on a lead in public spaces unless it is a designated off-lead zone. Pet dogs and cats must be vaccinated against all common canine and feline diseases, including rabies. 

Living in Santiago: A Canine Perspective

Santiago is a fabulous place for pet dogs; the city has many pet-friendly cafés and restaurants. As a doggy in Santiago, my favourite café is Daniel’s Bakery in Nuñoa. I love walking and socialising with other dogs at dog-friendly parks like the Plaza Loreto Cousiño and the Canino Park at Las Condes.

Santiago citizens love their dogs and cats, and even the city strays are well-fed and cared for by the citizens.
