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.
