Travel With Your Canine In California

Can’t wait for your next trip,​ but are miserable at​ the​ idea of​ leaving your best friend behind?

After all,​ who better to​ experience long walks on​ the​ beach with — or​ snuggling up on​ the​ terrace to​ watch the​ sunset with — than your pooch (especially when no meaningful conversation is​ expected)?

If you’ve got to​ get away,​ but can’t bear the​ sad look from those puppy dog eyes,​ maybe it’s time for a​ little getaway that includes Fido,​ too. the​ following are some canine-friendly cities that offer more unusual treats to​ lure both of​ you​ for a​ visit.

NAPA,​ CALIFORNIA

Los Angeles already has a​ reputation for being a​ dog-friendly city,​ but its neighbor down south is​ making steps to​ become the​ next hot dog spot in
Southern California. Long Beach is​ a​ coastal city that has recently opened three acres of​ its beach in​ Belmont Shore as​ an​ off-leash area. “The
Dog Zone” visitors must follow the​ rules— only one dog per adult,​ and pooper-scoopers are a​ must. the​ Dog Zone starts at​ 4800 E. Ocean Blvd.,​ between Roycroft and Argonn streets.

Also in​ Long Beach is​ the​ very active Haute Dogs organization,​ which
arranges several doggie-centered events in​ Belmont Shore all year long. The
Haute (pronounced “hot”) Dog Easter Parade features hundreds of​ dogs
marching along in​ bonnets and Easter outfits,​ while the​ Howl’oween Parade
and Canine Costume Contest that includes an​ adoption fair,​ a​ bulldog kissing
booth; and a​ dancing dog demonstrations. if​ that’s not doggone wacky enough,​
stick around Long Beach for the​ Haute Dog poetry contest and bulldog beauty
contest.

Several restaurants and shops along the​ busy Second Street in​ Belmont Shore
offer water bowls to​ welcome pets. Pet-friendly accommodations are rather
scarce (you may be better off making Long Beach doggie festivities part of​ a
day trip),​ but you​ can try the​ following:

Renaissance Long Beach Hotel,​ a​ luxury hotel that welcomes dogs of​ any size
for a​ $75 non-refundable fee. 111 East Ocean Boulevard,​ Long Beach,​ 562-437-5900
