Dog-Friendly Russian River
I don't know who let the dogs out on the Russian River but they are here and we are so excited that they are. The Russian River is widely known for being "dog-friendly" but many don't know how friendly we really are. For example many of the local restaurants, bars and shops keep a dog bowl either outside or right inside the door for our furry friends to re-hydrate while out on the town. Beaches are not known for having the silly signs warding against dogs and many of the vacation rentals on the Russian River even encourage you to bring your four-legged family members along with you! This article will explore some of the places that are dog-friendly here in our community.
Dog-Friendly Lodging On The Russian River

Being a dog-friendly restaurant is difficult because of the health standards required by the state and federal governments however the Russian River has quite a few of them including but not limited to the ones listed below.

Dog-Friendly Campgrounds and Beaches
Camping this summer? Here are some great campgrounds that are dog-friendly on the Russian River where you and your furry family member can relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

I hope this helps you to make some decisions about your upcoming trip with your four-legged friends. Can't wait to see you all on the river and until then keep your tail wagging!
