About 20 miles north of San Francisco is the lovely town of San Anselmo, California, which has a population of just under 13,000 people. San Anselmo is largely known for its boutiques and antique district as well as many of its trendy restaurants. Like most towns in California, San Anselmo is beautiful all year-long, with hot summers and mild, rainy winters, but there's always plenty of green space to explore in the town's parks and trails. San Anselmo's proximity to San Francisco gives residents access to San Fran's amenities, while still being able to return to a place with a small-town feel at the end of the day. There are a few veterinarians in San Anselmo, and when you venture further into surrounding areas, you'll find several other veterinary offices.
Right in the heart of downtown San Anselmo is a popular restaurant called L'Appart Resto. This restaurant serves delicious French fare like duck confit, filet de lotte roti, tarte tatin, and creme brulee, and you can enjoy all of these dishes with your dog at your side at one of their outdoor pet-friendly tables. Once you get a taste of San Anselmo and all it has to offer dog owners, you won't be able to get enough of it!
