Dog-friendly San Francisco Bay Area

San Francisco Bay Area

The 10-county San Francisco Bay Area just may be the most dog-friendly region in the world. From the coastal counties of San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, San Mateo and Santa Cruz where you'll find beautiful beaches to the hip, urban vibe with lots of canine-accommodating amenities in Oakland and the East Bay, this is the place!

The Bay Area is also your gateway to the beautiful wine county featuring Sonoma County, Napa Valley and the Livermore Valley, where everyone, two-legged and four, are welcome.

Wineries in the Napa Valley number in the hundreds, and it’s a rare facility open to the public that turns away imbibers with leashes in hand. While some facilities relegate four-legged guests to their picnic grounds, others invite furry friends to belly up to the bar with their people (yes, Lucy, that’s a jar of treats on the counter…). Here are some weatherproof suggestions for winter wine tasting with a dog at your side. more »
