“Even on a chilly April morning, breakfast here with our lab, Aspen, was memorable,” writes Frank Chan of Davis, California. “We sat by an outdoor fireplace and enjoyed huevos rancheros and gourmet pancakes.”
“This wonderful restaurant in an extremely dog-friendly town has a patio where your dogs can sit at your table,” says Debbie Kick of Sacramento. “They even bring you a dog menu.”
“A little hard to find but lots of fun,” says Cindy Padilla of San Francisco. “At the ocean beach with all the other dog lovers you feel you’re at the edge of the world. You’ll have very happy and tired pooches by the end of your visit.”
“The grounds are always beautiful and pets are special,” says Dave Felthousen of Grass Valley, California. “They have biscuits for the dogs, and when the café is open your dog is served complimentary ice cream."
“Dogs are always welcome here, and on odd days they can be off leash to enjoy trails and streams,” says Tracy Flores of Murray, Utah. “Trails lead to lakes and overlooks.”
“Enjoy a cocktail on the patio with your furry friend in front of the fire pits,” says Katriona Seevers of San Mateo, California. “You won’t be able to discern whether it’s the humans or the canines whose smiles are bigger.”
“Our go-to restaurant when traveling with our dog,” says Sterling Michaels of Pacifica, California. “There’s a huge patio, a great view, terrific food—and our Omega is welcomed with a cute dish of water.”

“When friends and family come to visit us on Lake Tahoe’s west shore—all with one or more dogs—we recommend this cozy bed-and-breakfast,” says Susan Grove of Tahoma.
Fireside Motel, Yachats, Oregon
“Pets aren’t just welcomed here, they are encouraged, taken care of, and loved,” says Therese Bauer of Eugene, Oregon. “Each pooch gets a basket of towels, sheets, bags, and a treat. It’s the perfect place for my lab, Shasta, to sack out after running on the venerable 804 Trail to the beach.”
Geiser Grand Hotel, Baker City, Oregon
“At this historic hotel, you can even leave your pet in the room (in a crate) while you dine downstairs,” writes Rita Baker of Happy Valley, Oregon. “You just leave your cell phone number in case your dog barks.”
