Dog-friendly San Francisco Bay Area

San Francisco Bay Area

The 9-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 and San Mateo 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 country featuring Sonoma County, Napa Valley, and the Livermore Valley, where everyone, two-legged and four, is welcome.

Wineries, Pumpkins and Vacaville, Oh My!
Wineries, Pumpkins and Vacaville, Oh My!

There’s no time better than October to visit the Suisun Valley between Davis and Vacaville in Solano County. Not only are the vineyards ablaze; pumpkin patches, farm stands and other agricultural points of interest are in full swing. (Don’t miss Larry’s Produce, a vast produce enterprise with adjacent pumpkin patch.) 

The valley is just a ridge away from the famous Napa Valley, and its wines share many characteristics native to the shared climate. Suisun bills itself as “rustic wine country” and prides itself on providing friendly welcomes to visitors with dogs on the other end of the leash. more »

The short answer: Lots and lots of things to get tails a-waggin!  Start off with a romp at Baldwin Dog Park or the Paw Patch dog park in 126-acre Newhall Community Park, then hit the trails at one of the East Bay Regional Park District preserves just minutes away. more »

Outdoor Dining With Your Pup

Sure, you can get takeout food delivered by DoorDash, Uber Eats, Grubhub or another service, but who wants to eat out of cardboard or Styrofoam when you don't have to?
