For a list of businesses that welcome pets, visit as you plan your next vacation.  Keep in mind that rules and rates vary, as do amenities such as pet sitters and pet menus and treats.

Perhaps your ideal vacation includes camping?  Head to Riverside Campground and Cabins in Big Sur to enjoy the life in the great outdoors.  Please note that all pets must be accompanied and kept on a leash.  If you and your canine need a good hike, visit Garland Ranch Regional Park.  There are many areas where dogs can roam off-leash as long as they are under voice command and maintain visual contact with their owners at all times.  And when it’s time to rehydrate, you’ll both enjoy the specially designed water fountains!

Maybe you and Fido are longing for the tang of salt air and the thrill of the open seas.  To satisfy the inner Viking, consider a bay cruise, rental or sailing class with Monterey Sailing School. Phone 831-372-7245 or drop them a mail at

If luxury shopping and fine dining are more appealing, head to Carmel Plaza.   Their “Fountain of Woof,” a doggy drinking fountain that is cleaned and refreshed daily, is sure to please.  And their fully staffed Concierge Center, in addition to accommodating any request, has dog treats, too!  Call 831-624-1385 or email for more information.
