Dog Walking in Tahoe City

Tahoe City lies on the northwestern shore of Lake Tahoe, and is a community full of artists, designers and media people. Many of them telecommute from home, and this allows them, and the large seasonal population, to enjoy the natural resources that Tahoe City and its surrounding area offers. Also, there is one veterinarian in town who will help get your fur-pup up and wagging again should she need medical care.

If you’re looking for a winter activity that you can enjoy with your fur-buddy, Tahoe Cross Country is an activity located in Tahoe City that fits the bill! The pristine, groomed ski trails are leash-free if your pooch obeys voice commands, and she can explore along the trail for birds and animals while you glide along. The trails are open in the non-winter seasons as well, and are great places for wildlife and wildflower walks. Be aware that leashes are required at the trailhead and in the parking lot before you hit the trail.

When you’ve worked up a hunger and thirst on the trails, head over to the popular local restaurant, Jake’s on the Lake. There you’ll find a patio with tables, so you can share your yummies with your furry bestie, which can include seafood, noodle bowls, tacos and sandwiches, among many other delicious items. Bone appetit!

Whatever your reason for being in Tahoe City, you’re sure to find lots for you and your furry bestie to do in this pawsome area.

If you’re looking for something different and fun to do with your fur-pup, then Truckee River Rafting in Tahoe City is pawrfect for you!

The bike path to town is its own pawsome experience, featuring scenic views of the Lake Tahoe. Woofderful!

This Tahoe City neighborhood lies north in the city, and is host to one of the most popular destinations for residents and tourists looking for outdoor adventure with their pooches. Dog-friendly Burton Creek State Park features 6 miles of unpaved roads for hiking, mountain biking and cross-country skiing, with your fur buddy secured to a leash. Wildlife and birds abound, and Fido will enjoy seeking them out with his nose, eyes and ears. The terrain is uneven and mountainous, so be sure to take this into consideration when planning your hike with the pup. You’ll need to take your own water, and there are no restrooms, so plan accordingly.  While there is no camping inside the park, there is a campground at nearby Tahoe State Recreation Area. Pups must be confined or leashed at all times in the campground.
