1. The dog parks have endless miles of incredible trails for you and your pup to sniff and explore.
2. Stunning hiking is available year-round, and every season feels like a new adventure.
3. Dog-friendly events, such as the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival, offer seasonal fun for pups and their humans.
4. The swimming holes will turn your dog into the athlete you didn’t realize she is.
5. The city hikes in Portland feel like a magical escape from city life (except for maybe the occasional graffiti).
6. The entirety of the Oregon coast is a dog park filled with endless enchantment.
7. Your pup will be fit. I lost 10 pounds swimming, hiking, and adventuring this year!
8. The pet stores are next level. Our local pet store is a meat market for cats and dogs.
9.One word: mud. All the mud.
10. Your pup will make lifelong adventure pups, and you will feel like you’re in the film Homeward Bound when you hike with them.
I hope this article fills you with inspiration to explore what I consider to be America’s dog-friendliest destination.
