Dog Walking in Foster City

The beautifully planned community of Foster City was created with dog lovers and families in mind. With over 21 city parks, Fido will always have a place to run and play. Boothbay Park is just one of the areas where you and your pooch will find other pups strolling along the paths, admiring the gardens, and sniffing and romping in this green space. Taking a break at the gazebo area is perfect when you need a rest and a cold drink of water. When you need a change of scenery, head over to Erckenbrak Park that is nestled in a residential area. There is a playground for the children, and Fido will enjoy an energetic walk around the beach.

When your pooch needs a checkup or emergency medical care, there are four veterinarian clinics in the area. The professional and caring staff will help take care of your pup and treat him like one of the family. After spending time at the vet, take your pooch to Chalet Ticino where you can enjoy a variety of Italian, French and German cuisine. You can find a table on the outdoor patio to enjoy your meal while Fido sips cool water from a bowl. Taking your pooch out to dinner is fun when visiting Togo’s Sandwiches. There are dog-friendly tables where you can enjoy a fresh chicken salad sandwich and gluten-free options.

Visitors to the city will enjoy all the parks and dog-friendly activities. If you need a place to stay the night, consider Towne Place Suites where dogs are allowed for an extra fee.
