Dog-friendly Oakland

Oakland

Dog-loving residents of Oakland have it all: tons of bars and restaurants with dog-friendly outdoor seating; an overall welcoming attitude toward canines; fenced and unfenced off-leash play areas; and a wealth of open-space trails, many of which don’t require leashes away from developed areas. If what you’re after is a hip, urban vibe with lots of canine-accommodating amenities, this is the place!
