It's the perfect time to dine and drink al fresco in southern Maine -- but sometimes you just need to bring your best friend with you. And sometimes that best friend is your dog.

Tito’s Handmade Vodka presents “The Dog Days of Summer.”

Take your dog to the deck, or your pooch to the patio, and enjoy a refreshing drink or meal with your four-legged pal.

And don't worry about where you should go with your pup either. We've got you covered.

Check out these dog-friendly bars and restaurants in southern Maine that will welcome you and your dog with open paws:

PORTLAND

FREEPORT

KENNEBUNK/KENNEBUNKPORT

WINDHAM

OGUNQUIT

WELLS

And if you're having a "paw-some" time, tag @vodkafordogpeople on Instagram to show us how you and your pup are celebrating summer the Tito's way.
