DogTrekker's Best River Adventures

There’s something special about spending the day on the river with Rover and friends.

Among our favorite go-to spots is the gently flowing stretch of the Russian River around Healdsburg. Russian River Adventures rents dog-friendly inflatable canoes for full-day trips where you can enjoy clear, clean swimming holes and a picnic lunch before catching the shuttle back to town. A bit farther north, in Mendocino County, Catch A Canoe & Bicycles Too offers a different kind of paddling experience—this one in outrigger canoes outfitted with a stable platform where Rover can sit as you explore the Big River estuary.

Headed up to Tahoe? A float trip down the Truckee River from Tahoe City to River Ranch Resort is a summer rite of passage. more »
