Out of 120 wineries, 30 of them welcome wet noses and offer pet friendly amenities. Some of the wineries, like Waterbrook Cellars even encourage dogs to run around their grounds. How pawesome is that?
According to Dog Gone Seattle, it is advisable that you call ahead and let them know you’re coming.
2. Austin, Texas
Long thought of as one of the most dog friendly cities in the U.S., Austin rolls out the red carpet for canines every chance they get.
This is a great spring break for active pet parents. They have many parks, trails and watering holes for you and your dog to play in. And when you get thirsty, Austin has plenty of dog friendly bars for you and your dog to wet your whistles.
3. San Diego, California
Often a rival of Austin for which city is more dog friendly, San Diego has no shortage of beaches, hotels, restaurants and bars that welcome wet noses.
One of the best places to go in San Diego is Ocean Beach Dog Beach. Amada L. wrote on Yelp!, “I come here with my sister and her pup every now and again and I am always impressed to see this place in action. This is literally a haven for dogs and owners alike, giving the dogs the opportunity to run all around the sandy beach into the water, and owners the luxury of not getting yelled at! My sister’s pup loves it! She gets an awesome workout fetching the ball in the water and loves running around and meeting other dogs as well.”
4. Albuquerque, New Mexico
Albuquerque was named America’s most dog friendly city by priceline.com, and its residents very proud of that – for good reason.
This gorgeous New Mexican city has many dog friendly hotels, restaurants and places to play. One of the most popular dog parks is Tingley Beach. Here you can walk or swim with your pooch.
