Yes, Oakland is a vibrant urban place to visit, but it’s not all about dog-friendly ale and wine trails, waterfront dining and hotels (more about that below). As dog-centric locals know, one of the pleasures of living here is proximity to many open-space preserves where you can flee the big-city hustle-bustle and revel with your pup in the shade of redwoods or atop grassy ridges with panoramic views. more »

The dog-friendly East Bay communities of Concord and Pleasant Hill in Contra Costa County have something very much in common:  both look out on Mount Diablo, an isolated peak that juts up almost 4,000 feet between the East Bay and the Central Valley. From the summit on a clear day (and there are lots of them in fall and winter, especially following a storm), one of the most expansive views in North America opens up. more »

Three valleys and four small cities in the Tri-Valley (Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin and Danville) comprise this triangle-shaped region set amid rolling hills and valleys 35 miles east of San Francisco. This is dog-friendly wine country for sure, and it’s also blessed with tens of thousands of acres of dog-friendly open space managed by the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD). more »

Dogs Chill While You Dine 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 »

Summer is prime time for outdoor dining, and around Clear Lake you’ll find lots of decks and patios that welcome well-behaved pets. In Lower Lake, Danny’s Roadside Kitchen is a true “roadhouse”—no inside seating, just great barbecue with a cult following. On a healthier tack, Wholly Bowl in Lakeport has a dog-friendly patio and turns out good-for-you meals (think chicken teriyaki bowls and Thai peanut wraps) and some of the best vegan dishes in Lake County. more »

This East Bay community of 35,000 is surrounded by hills that perfectly reflect its name. But while some may view its location (23 miles east of San Francisco and 73 miles west of Sacramento) as merely “close to" (as in “close to” the City by the Bay as well as Napa and Sonoma wine country), Pleasant Hill holds plenty of dog-friendly appeal on its own. more »
