We all love exciting, dog-friendly lodging and family experiences, and the farm stay adventure at Dog & Pony Ranch in Amador County stands out on that list.

DogTrekker Barketing Director Maya spends her days hiking off-leash and running around this scenic, 60-acre ranch in the Sierra foothills. She splashes and swims in the dog-friendly pond. She gets nose-to-nose with horses, llamas, mini-donkeys and chickens (with extensive fencing to keep dogs safely separated, of course). She also loves evening downtime with her parents in the luxury lodge-style homemore »

Dog-friendly cabins dot the California landscape, connecting four-legged family members with best-in-show adventures. Whether you prefer a farm stay in Gold Country, a trek along Yosemite trails, or a Marin County coastal stroll, you’ll always find great options. Because DogTrekker.com readers tell us that cabins and cottages are their top lodging preference, we asked Maya, DogTrekker’s Director of Barketing, to do some digging. She’s traveled California in search of dog-friendly cabins and cottages, and here are three of her favorites.

Sacramento has a couple of nicknames. For the last decade or so, it’s prided itself as “America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital” due to its location in the agriculture-rich Central Valley. But it’s been known since the mid-1800s as the “City of Trees” for the robust canopies that shelter its many parks and older residential neighborhoods. The tree-planting binge started by early residents never stopped, and today, Sacramento’s parks provide shady refuge for DogTrekkers, even on the hottest summer days. more »
