ROAD TRIPS 2021
Bobby and Alli Talley with
their bernedoodle, Sally
ers. Some brands are known for
welcoming big dogs, too-such
as Kimpton, La Quinta, Motel
6, and Loews. " You can almost
always find a La Quinta, even
alongside the road, " says Alli.
" They're super dog friendly, and
there's no dog fee, so we love
that. " The boutique-chain Kimpton
also charges no fee, and the
Talleys love their dog amenities,
including bowls and treats.
" They'll write your dog's name
on a welcome sign outside,
and they almost always have
a happy hour in the evenings
where dogs are invited. "
and Harbor Cove in Ventura
County. In Los Angeles County,
check out Rosie's Beach in Long
Beach, or head to Orange
County for the sandy playground
of Huntington Dog
Beach. In San Diego, pups love
Del Mar Dog Beach and the
stretch of Ocean Beach known
as " the original dog beach. "
The Lake Tahoe area has its
own dog-friendly beaches,
including South Lake Tahoe's
Kiva Beach and North Lake
Tahoe's Pebble Beach.
Think outside of the
dog park.
A recent survey from DogTrekker
showed that cultural and
historical destinations are
on the upswing for traveling
dogs. California's North Coast
region-which encompasses
Mendocino, Lake, Humboldt
and Del Norte counties-features
dozens of dog-friendly
things to do such as outdoor
wine tastings, the Trees of
Mystery park in Klamath, and
even the historic locomotive
excursion Skunk Train. At
Sonoma County's Mutt Lynch
Winery, your pup can enjoy free
dog-treat flights while you sip a

Chardonnay or Pinot Noir.
Ventura County is so dog-friendly
that pooches can browse at
the Camarillo Premium Outlets.
In Concord, dogs are welcome
at taprooms such as The Hop
Grenade, Epidemic Ales, and
Lazy Dog-where a " pup menu "
includes a hamburger patty bowl
with brown rice and veggies.
Know the rules at state
and national parks.
Most national parks allow pets
in campgrounds or on paved
trails, but typically not on
hiking trails. Many of the 280
California state parks, however,
do allow dogs on trails, including
Mendocino Headlands State
Park, Monterey State Historic
Park, and the grounds of Sacramento's
California State Capitol.
Check for fees and
breed restrictions
when choosing a hotel.
Some charge a onetime fee,
a per-night fee, or perhaps no
fee at all. At the Beverly Hills
Hotel, all sizes are welcome for
just $35 a night, and dogs are
greeted with bowls, plush beds,
and personalized bone-shaped
cookies made by the hotel bakLook
at the hotel's map
view before you book.
See if there are parks, cafes, or
other necessities within walking
distance. In Monterey, the city's
off-leash dog park is about a
mile from both the dog-friendly
Portola Hotel & Spa and top
spots such as Fisherman's
Wharf and Cannery Row.
Don't overpack.
The Traveling Newlyweds love
their Kurgo doggie seatbelt
tether for comfortably securing
Sally on road trips. Otherwise
they " just bring collapsible
water bowls and snacks, " says
Alli. " Anywhere in California,
there will be a store where you
can buy supplies as needed. "
Let your pup set
the tone.
You might find that planning a
vacation around the dog ends
up feeling pretty liberating.
" Traveling with Sally actually
forces us to walk more in destinations, "
says Alli. " We'll say,
'Let's find a restaurant that's
walking distance from the hotel,'
and we end up seeing more of
the destination that way. " Bobby
adds that Sally is the ultimate
conversation starter. " When
we're in a hotel lobby or at a
brewery outside, people want to
know what kind of dog she is-
or ask about dog-friendly travel.
We make friends. "
