And please make sure that your dog is always on a leash when visiting!
Know of a dog-friendly "people" place? Tell us about it!
The Saddleback Inn - Lake Arrowhead. The staff absolutely loves dogs! They are very accommodating to all pet owners.
Lake Arrowhead Village - Lake Arrowhead. Check out the village with your dog on any given day, and chances you'll see many people taking their dogs out for a stroll or shopping! This is a fantastic location if you wish to work with your dog around distractions.
CUBY Dog Bakery - Alpine Mall, across the street from the Crestline Post Office. This superb bakery also has a fenced area behind the store where you can take your dog to train, play, or just hang out while nibbling on the fresh-baked treats!
Lake Gregory - There is a beautiful trail that goes around Lake Gregory. It is perfect for taking a leisurely stroll on leash with your dog. A dog park is planned for the south side of the lake in the summer of 2007. Check out the latest news about the Lake Gregory Dog Park here.
Downtown Crestline - Downtown Crestline is a dog-friendly area due to its sidewalks and shops along the main street! While it's not as posh as Montana Avenue in Santa Monica (an extremely dog-friendly upscale shopping area), it's the next best thing if you want to take your dog into town. We can't think of a better area to practice real-world socialization skills and training in the mountains than on this community street with your dog.
