PET FRIENDLY California North Coast

PET FRIENDLY California North Coast

The North Coast of California offers some of the most spectacular shoreline scenery in the United States; it is also pet friendly with a capital P. And it all starts with our pet-friendly lodgings, whether you're looking for a hotel, motel, inn, cabin, cottage, or bed and breakfast.

If it's about the coast, that means it's about the beaches and we've prepared an entire pet-friendly guide to the North Coast's beaches for you. From Crescent Beach right over the Oregon line to the Point Reyes National Seashore north of San Francisco, you and your pup will have your pick of seaside fun, both on and off leash.

You might want to time your trip over Labor Day weekend so you can go to the Paul Bunyan Days festival in Fort Bragg. Why? Well, it's fun, but the main reason is to catch the Ugly Dog Contest, which, locals maintain, is the oldest Ugly Dog Contest in the country. Respect must be paid. So plan to enter your own ugly (but incredibly wonderful) dog or admire the ugly mugs of other owners' lover dogs.
