Redwood City, California, is a large city of almost 80,000 citizens located south of San Francisco and part of San Mateo County. The people of this port town have a particular fondness of dogs, as there is a large amount of dog-related amenities in Redwood City, making the town a great place to live for dogs and their owners.

One of the most treasured parks in town is the Shore Dogs Park. This park offers the opportunity for dogs to go wild as they are allowed to run around freely without a leash. The park provides benches, drinking fountains and waste bags for a hassle-free dog walking experience. Note: As the park is located in Redwood Shores, it is also a great spot for birdwatchers.

The Pulgas Ridge Open Space Preserve offers a more rugged experience. This natural reserve, located in the Santa Cruz Mountains, offers a wide variety of trails throughout almost 300 acres of elevated woodland. Dogs are allowed to roam with their human friends as long as they are on the leash. There is, however, also an off-leash dog park as part of the recreational area.

Going into town with your dog(s) is a pleasant experience thanks to the many dog-friendly places you can visit. It is easy to find a place to eat as there is a large amount of restaurants, eateries and pubs that allow dogs as long as you sit outside.
