Dog-friendly City of San Luis Obispo

San Luis Obispo

Ths City of San Luis Obispo says welcome! Tucked between the Coast Range, the Pacific Ocean and right in the middle of Central Coast Wine Country, San Luis Obispo enjoys all the spoils of a life well lived on the California coast.

A family vacation isn’t complete if a certain four-legged and furry member has to stay home. Whether you are hiking, dining or simply relaxing in the sun, San Luis Obispo is very dog friendly. No sense in leaving your loyal companion behind, bring your pup along to sniff out all the hot spots.

San Simeon Cove, San Luis Obispo County. Tucked beneath William Randolph Hearst’s famous castle, San Simeon Cove is a jewel of a place with emerald water and ample space for dogs to romp. Off-leash dogs aren’t allowed on adjacent Hearst Memorial State Beach, so if you want to unclip, simply walk a few hundred feet to the right of the pier where signs announced the beach boundary. more »

San Luis Obispo County encompasses just about everything California is known for, from mountains to ocean to wine country to laid-back vibe. Sure, you can shoot down from the Bay Area on Interstate 5 and Highway 46, but it’s much more rewarding to take the slow lane (Highway 101) all the way to Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo and beyond. more »

San Luis Obispo, the Central Coast college town about 12 miles inland from the Pacific shore, is a great jumping-off place for DogTrekkers who’d like to visit Paso Robles wine country or romp on a beach. But you don’t have to leave town to enjoy one of the region’s top dog-friendly assets, Laguna Lake Open Space, a 375-acre preserve with an off-leash (but not fenced) dog play area and miles of trails leading into the scenic hills. more »

From Ragged Point in the north to Pismo Beach in the south, the San Luis Obispo County coast is a dog-friendly wonderland loaded with things to do and places to stay with your pup. Along the 70 miles of Highway 1 that hug it, you’ll encounter everything from secluded tide pools and shimmering coves to classic SoCal beaches packed shoulder to shoulder with surfer dudes, bikini babes and dogs with jaunty bandanas around their necks. more »
