Dog Walking in Los Gatos

A town named after cats might not sound like the best place to visit with your dog in tow, but you won't want to miss this furrific spot. Los Gatos has been home to many industries throughout the years. It started with logging, then shifted to agriculture, the railway industry, and eventually oil. Today, many large technology companies have set up their headquarters in Los Gatos. You might know one of them: Netflix!

Los Gatos -- which is Spanish for "the cats" -- is actually very dog-friendly! Here, you'll find a trail for you and your canine friend to hike, as well as 35 restaurants that welcome dogs to dine with their owners. A great establishment to check out is the Southern Kitchen. This restaurant has a very friendly staff and has a Southern-style menu. There is limited seating outside for you and your pooch, though, so be sure to call ahead. 

La Esquina Mexican Restaurant is also a pawpular spot for you and your furry friend to enjoy a meal together. Chow down on your favorite Mexican dish at one of the outdoor tables while Fido begs for a bite from your plate. What better way to burn those extra calories than a nice shopping excursion? Just a half-mile from La Esquina, you'll find plenty of op-paw-tunities to shop 'til you drop!

Not in the mood for Mexican? Check out Viva. This restaurant serves great food and has a heated, dog-friendly patio so you and your dog can grab a bite even in cold weather. All Los Gatos' dog-friendly restaurants offer outdoor seating which welcomes pooches and their parents.

Although it's named in honor of our feline friends, Los Gatos has really gone to the dogs!
