Fort Bragg in Northern California is a favorite pet-friendly tourist destination in the state, and one of its most popular dog parks is the Fort Bragg’s Dog Park. Protected by double gates and 4-foot fences, pet parents can be sure that their furbabies are away from harm. There is a real fire hydrant which seems to be a preference of dogs visiting the area.
The dog park has two sections, for large canines and another for small and timid canines, so there is ample room for dogs of all kinds to stretch their legs. There is a ton of grass for pets to roll on. There is always a stock of dog poop bags, so do your part and keep the area clean for other pooches and pet parents to enjoy. The big dog side has lovely shade and shelter so that you can take a respite from the sun on a scorching day.
This fabulous pet-friendly destination is right next to the community center, and park goers have mentioned that there were tennis balls in the park for pooches to play on. Although the park is not significant, its features more than compensate for its lack of size. Where else would you find a place with a plethora of activities for canines?
Aside from enjoying the park, visiting dogs and pet parents can cover their paws and hands with paint and create Jackson Pollock-like artwork and a group dog paddle kayak outing up Noyo River. Other activities Spike can participate in are the Ugly Dog contest and First Fridays Art Walks.
If you want to know what your dog is thinking, Carol Becker, the famous Animal Communicator, offers 5-minute sessions with you and your pup for $5 and donates all proceeds to Mendocino Coast Humane Society. Dogs get complimentary ice cream at Cowlick’s, and most downtown shops also offer dog treats and fresh water.
