Moss Beach Distillery is so well known among dog-lovers that the makings of a pack can be found every day on the expansive Seal Cove Patio overlooking the Pacific.  The Distillery was named one of the best dog-friendly destinations in the West by the American Automobile Association's VIA magazine. It provides water bowls, doggie beds, and even a dog food menu for man's best friend. A seasonal dog-photography contest awards winners with gift certificates and bragging rights.

For humans, the menu features just what you want from an ocean-side eatery: fish tacos, oysters, sea bass, steamers, crab cakes and other seafood specials. 

"We take pride in our love for dogs and strive to provide an incomparable setting for you to spend the day with your pooch," states the website. There's even a nightly bonfire, weather permitting.

DogTrekkers who live inland know they’re never far from Sweatshirt Land. So when the mercury climbs, those in the know leash up their pups and head for the coast, making base camp in unhurried towns like BeniciaPacifica, Point Reyes Station (gateway to the national seashore) or Half Moon Bay, all of which are well appointed with hiking trails. Our most recent weekend away was to Half Moon Bay, where early-morning fog gave way to blue-sky days and the shooshing sea was a soothing backdrop for long walks along the gorgeous Coastside Trailmore »

Fresh-air activities are major draws on the San Mateo coast, and we all know how ocean-scented breeze and exercise work up an appetite in both man and beast. Fortunately, many eateries along the coast welcome four-legged guests, so long as there’s a two-legged companion on the other end of the leash. Here are four worth barking about. more »

It can be hard to find a place where you can legally cut that pesky umbilical cord, otherwise known as a leash, that ties you and your furry friend together. more »

It's hard to know what to do first in Half Moon Bay: Explore miles and miles of pristine beaches, scarf up some seafood at a seaside café, ogle the surfers or window shop in the picturesque downtown district.

If your main goal is a sandy stroll, try chasing some waves with Rover at dog-friendly Montara or Bean Hollow state beaches, both within 20 minutes of town. more »
