Dog-Friendly California

When it comes to pet-friendly destinations, California is pretty much unparalleled. Here are some of our favorite places to take your pup in the Golden State.

Disneyland Resort/Universal Studios Hollywood

Taking the whole family to Disneyland (Anaheim) or Universal Studios (Los Angeles)? Both actually have kennel facilities available every day for park guests so you and your family can have an amazing time at the park knowing your dogs are being well taken care of too.

Catalina Island

Pets can even join you on a trip to Catalina Island on the Catalina Express! They are welcome aboard as long as they are leashed or in a carrying case. No matter where you depart from, you can expect awe-inspiring views of the Pacific Ocean on your trip. Torn between taking a day trip and doing an overnight stay? You can use your ticket anytime you like, making it easy to stay and explore what Catalina Island has to offer at your own pace!

Kayak on Lake Tahoe

The Carnelian Bay & Emerald Bay of Lake Tahoe are great places to get off your feet and enjoy the water on a kayak. Whether you want a guided tour or just a rental, dogs are completely welcome. Explore Lake Tahoe by kayak during a 1-, 4- or 8-hour rental. In an easy-to-paddle single kayak, go wherever you want to go. You can travel from the marina in South Lake Tahoe to popular lake locations like Emerald Bay or hidden coves and beaches. Paddle fast if you’d like some exercise, or just float leisurely along, soaking up the magnificent mountain views.

Russian River/Sonoma County Canoeing

Go on an adventure and canoe down the Russian River! The canoes are stable enough that even huge dogs won’t tip them over. Ride down the Russian River on this canoeing adventure from Healdsburg. Aboard a comfortable, stable canoe, enjoy scenic views as you navigate the beautiful Russian River. Stop to swim, spot wildlife, and relax on the beach. Pack a lunch (and a few of your pup’s favorite bones) for a perfect afternoon on the water!
