Win a SoCal Desert Wine Region DogCation®!

When you think about Greater Palm Springs, a lot comes to mind. The blue sky, purple mountains, nodding palm trees and lots of dog-friendly things to do, places to stay, dine and play. What you may not know is that a short distance away is the very dog-friendly Temecula wine region. more »

The GGNRA is at it AGAIN!

Not Just in Marin County
Not Just in Marin County

From Marin Dog:

Take Action to Stop the 2019 Superintendent’s Compendium!

The Golden Gate National Recreation Area recently released a Superintendent’s Compendium that attempts to implement parts of the withdrawn Dog Management Plan—but without a public process.  If the National Park Service gets its way, there will be new restrictions in Marin County, right in the middle of our most popular off-leash areas.

These changes are unnecessary, unjustified and almost impossible to enforce. This also impacts GGNRA lands in San Francisco and San Mateo Counties. DogTrekker asks that you continue reading to better understand this new approach and what you can do to once again stop this craziness. more »

Pant, Paddle, Pedal With Your Pup

Pant, Paddle, Pedal With Your Pup

There’s something magical about the Big River estuary alongside the Stanford Inn, and something ingenious about the “canine cruiser” that transports two-and four-legged visitors downstream on an ultra-stable platform. That said, you won’t find a more eclectic collection of canoes and kayaks than at Catch a Canoe, which shares ground with the inn and has been outfitting paddlers on the 8.3-mile-long Big River estuary since 1972. Well-behaved dogs of all makes and models are welcome to ride along and enjoy the scenery in surrounding Big River State Park.

Dog-Passionate From the Get-Go

Dog-Passionate From the Get-Go

Stanford Inn by the Sea has been welcoming pets for almost 40 years—it was, in fact, one of the first B&Bs in California to do so. Innkeepers Joan and Jeff Stanford know that four-legged family members deserve care and attention, and they cater to canines accordingly. In pet-friendly guest rooms, water and food bowls are provided along with pick-up bags, house-made organic treats and covers to protect furniture and bedding. more »

Dogs Chill While You Dine at The Ravens

Dining at The Ravens

Stanford Inn is a standout in the dog-friendly world not simply because it was one of the first in California to roll out the red carpet for pets. It was also one of the first to adopt sustainable practices, helping to kick off the “green” revolution that resonates today. And it might just be the only vegan resort in the nation. If you’re an omnivore, don’t be put off, be adventurous! What you’ll sample at The Ravens, the inn’s acclaimed restaurant, will turn your head and your mind. It starts with a cooked-to-order, plant-based breakfast (included in the rates). more »

A mere five minutes from Little River, much-photographed Mendocino Village, with its wealth of lacy Victorians and colorful saltbox cottages, is loaded with places to enjoy with your four-legged friend. Our top pick is Stanford Inn by the Sea, just south of the village across Big River. Once you’ve explored the compact downtown, get your tails over to Mendocino Headlands State Park, which surrounds the town on three sides. more »

Nine miles. Four-plus hours of water time. Countless tail wags, big smiles. A float/paddle on a secluded section of the Russian River is a DogTrekker must-do for visitors to Sonoma County. With your water-loving dog on board in a custom-made SOAR inflatable canoe from Russian River Adventures, you’ll explore a secluded section of the waterway downstream from Healdsburg and linger at swimming holes and beaches, picnicking, playing fetch and wishing the adventure would never end. If DogTrekkers act fast, the usual $10 dog fee will be waved mid-week through the end of June (use code DOG10TREK19 when booking reservations). more »

Clear the Decks: It’s Splash Time in Lake County!

Clear the Decks: It’s Splash Time in Lake County!

Lake County is named for that big puddle of blue on the map, and there’s lots to wag tails about on its shores. But Clear Lake is hardly the only body of water in the vicinity. Blue Lakes (Upper and Lower), just five miles away, are a pair of clear, spring-fed bodies of water ideal for swimming and fishing. Only human-powered craft and electric motors are allowed (speed limit is 5 mph), but you can rent an electric “yacht” or pontoon boat from the Lodge at Blue Lakes and pile the kids and dogs on board for a great day of cruising about. more »

River Cruisin’ With Your Canine

Many say that coastal Mendocino County is not so much a place as a state of mind. And for DogTrekkers, full immersion wouldn’t be complete without a dog-friendly paddle excursion along the serene Big River estuary. Catch A Canoe & Bicycles Too, which shares ground with the extremely dog-friendly Stanford Inn by the Sea, has been putting paddlers on the 8.3-mile estuary since 1972. A decade or so ago, it introduced Canine Cruisers to its fleet of handmade redwood outrigger canoes. The dog-friendly craft feature a raised, padded deck centered in the middle of the canoe between paddler positions in bow and stern. more »
