16 Dog Friendly Hotels to Celebrate National Dog Day At

Little River Inn, Mendocino Coast

Northern California’s Mendocino County is one of the best vacation spots in America for dog owners, with numerous dog friendly shops to browse and wineries where your dog is encouraged to lounge while you taste some of California’s best wines. The perfect headquarters for a pooch-pleasing vacation is the Little River Inn on the Mendocino coast. The fifth generation innkeeper (and her dogs) grew up on the property, which boasts such doggy delights as 250-off leash acres for romping, a gentle beach across the street, and a cozy parlor where dogs and people can dine together. Doggie welcome gifts include a towel for after-adventure clean up along with the usual treats, water bowl, and other necessary pup-pampering items. The River Dog package (which is good from June 1 through Halloween each year) includes a tandem human and pooch canoe trip as well, making this California wine country inn one of the most adventurous dog friendly hotels in America.
