Easy process to find my new baby! Got my first Frenchie from a pet store-huge mistake! Highly recommend going through Puppy Spot-reputable breeders ensure you get a great pup! I don’t have the challenges (potty training, bad habit breaking) I had with my first Frenchie because my new pup came from a breeder who loved and cared for him adequately. Puppy Spot reps were all very friendly, helpful, professional, and true animal lovers! My new pup is a wonderful addition to our home and my 3 year old Frenchie is so happy to have a lil friend to nurture.
How dog-friendly is California?
California loves dogs!
California’s dog-friendliness is clear right out of the gates when we look at their pet population. Californians own the most dogs of any state in the U.S., with a little over 40% of homes housing a canine friend. And of the 264 shelters in the state, 118 are no-kill shelters.
California has also enacted plenty of animal welfare laws to guard against people leaving pets in cars or abusing their pets. The state limits owners to four dogs per household to ensure all pups get the attention and care that they need. California is also the only state where pet insurance is mandatory.
A study by WalletHub, the consumer finance site, found that 17 of the top 100 most dog-friendly cities in the country are located in California. They measured dog-friendliness by examining important things like pet-care and veterinary care costs, walkability, percentage of pet-friendly apartments, and animal welfare laws.
Safewise conducted a similar study and ranked California as the sixth most dog-friendly state in the country, while Pawsafe ranks CA as the 26th most dog-friendly state. Both sites are trusted in the pet-loving community.
Dog-friendly spots to go in California
With so much to offer as a state, there are unsurprisingly plenty of awesome dog-friendly spots across California. One of the state’s main attractions is the number of dog-friendly beaches. From San Diego to all the way up the North Coast, many beaches are open to dogs to play and run through the sand.
California is also home to plenty of parks, restaurants, and other areas and activities for you to enjoy with your pups. According to a Trust for Public Land (TPL) study, San Francisco has the fifth-highest number of dog parks per city by capita, with four dog parks per 100,000 residents. Bakersfield, Fremont, Long Beach, and Chula Vista also ranked in the top 25 for the most dog parks.
There are fewer parks in the Los Angeles area, with only 13 parks for the four million-plus residents. Of these parks, eight of them are off-leash parks.
Any areas for improvement?
The main area of improvement for California is dog-friendly housing. California offers a fairly average percentage of pet-friendly rentals. Not to worry – you’ll still find a place for you and your pup, but you should plan to spend a little more time in your search.
