Dog Is My Co-Pilot


The French Trail loop at Redwood Regional Park in Oakland. Gorgeous, peaceful, a great off-leash hike and a wonderful, little-known side of Oakland, CA. One of our favorites!
Dog City Tours: Dog-Friendly Sightseeing in San Francisco

Buena Vista Colorado: the countless hikes in the Colligate Peaks, lovely small mountain town, perfect summer weather. All make for beautiful vacations with my dogs .

Every year my family, including our two dogs, enjoys going to Brevard, North Carolina and hiking in Pisgah National Forest with hundreds of miles of trails and waterfalls too. A stay in a private cabin at DogWoods Retreat is a must, close to dog-friendly Asheville.

My brother gave me a great suggestion last year as I went through a difficult first holiday travel season with my new dog (it was the first significant car rides he'd been through with me and he did not love it). If you're doing a long day of driving, scout the route for dog parks or state parks that allow dogs and plan a breather of an hour or so to let your dog decompress and get the crazies out. I found one for the drive home, but it was a members only run. However, a local who was using the run suggested that for future travel, if I sent the park proof of vax and license info, they can issue a temporary code to use when I pass through. My hound still appreciated a nice walk around an area that wasn't a noisy truck stop or gas station.
